Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Anyone have a big Superbowl party? We are not huge football fans at my house. Soccer and hockey seems to be the preferred sport by the hubby so we spent most of the day out and about and got home to see the half time show and the second part of the game.
We decided to hit Costco thinking it might be pretty empty with everyone home getting ready to watch the game. Wrong. Everyone was at Costco! Maybe it was the extra tasty samples they were giving out.
I did see something that caught my eye and I wish I took a picture of it to share with you but it was so crowded that I decided to skip it. Anyway they had the most adorable package of mini frosted cupcakes. Has anyone else seen these? I think they were chocolate with pink frosting and I guess they're featuring them for Valentines Day. Sooo cute. All I could think of was how I would love to get them for myself next month for my birthday!
So now I have mini cupcakes on the brain. This is just a pic I found on the web since I don't have one of the ones from Costco. I also discovered a new gourmet cupcake shop that opened here in our downtown. There was one a few blocks away from me but they closed over a year ago and maybe that's a good thing. This new one is a few miles away so I would at least have to drive there. It's called Vanilla Bean and they feature yummy flavors like Death by Chocolate, Raspberry Beret and Chai Tea Latte. I'm still being good about eating healthy and working out so I think I deserve a sweet treat once in a while right?
How about a cupcake quiz? What kind of cupcake are you? I like to take these now and then and the last time I took one I think I was a chocolate fudge cupcake. Here's one I just took from Betty Crocker and this time I'm a peanut butter and jelly cupcake!
So what kind of cupcake are you?
Do you have a favorite flavor?
What would be your ultimate cupcake?
Just a bit of frosting or more frosting than cake?
I love vanilla, chocolate, lemon and mocha so my ultimate one might be a mix of all those flavors that's sinfully delicious but absolutely 0 calories. And that would include the mile high frosting too!
I'm enjoying having my muse back after being gone for far too long. I'm going to work on learning to let my art go this year so I have "Wondermoon" and "Follow Your Bliss" listed in my Etsy shop right now.
Have a simply sweet and delicious day.
