maybe it is my new found fascination for cupcakes
maybe it is my constant craving for my favorite red velvet cupcake...
lately, i found myself asking friends to accompany me to a new cupcake bakery that just opened a few months ago, sprinkles cupcakes. i was mighty excited that i found a friend who share the same love for cupcakes and decided to give it a try last weekend... couldn't wait! :)
with so many different flavors of cupcakes that are offered, it took a bit to first decide on how many of this decadent confection i should try. you could either take your time looking at the mighty fine cupcakes proudly displayed behind the glass window or you could see the flavors listed on the back wall.
finally, the lucky three that i chose were key lime, red velvet and milk chocolate cupcakes although i was also tempted to get their fluffy looking coconut cupcake where as my friend just got himself a red velvet. ($3.25 each or $36/dozen). key lime because i read somewhere that it was one of the best cupcakes around, red velvet because that's my most favorite dessert after tiramisu so it was a must and i read on yelp that it was awesome and the milk chocolate is because i wonder how good they can make classic cupcakes.
so to get your cupcake experience started, the friendly staff will take your order and your name and while you wait for it to be ready, you can pay at the counter. they have cute wooden forks and knives by the counter you could use if fingers aren't your utensils of choice.
after about three to five minutes of waiting, i looked at my brown box of cupcakes lovingly as they handed it to me over the counter. i was extremely excited and i just wanted to dig into the yummy looking cupcakes but i wanted to wait and savor it back at my apartment (and i was still stuffed from lunch at xoco.. await my second post about xoco!).
