Friends & Lovers

Can I just say, I love my friends. They’re the best. Always thinking of me, always on the lookout for things I’d be interested in…

“Mary, I’m at the mall…you’ll love these boots.”
“Hey, Mary, watch this movie.”
“Mary, you need this jacket, it’s so you!”
“Hello, you must try this cheesecake.”
“Mary. New cupcake store.”
‘Nuff said.I always get two cupcakes: One chocolate (you know, in case the world ends and I have only one thing to eat before the earth explodes or freezes or whatever) and one bonus flavor. At Sugar Queen Cupcakes today, I opted for the Chocolate Chocolate Chip and the Cream Cheese Lime. Oh my. The cake is dense and moist, the mini chocolate chips are nicely packed in–yet not too numerous to detract from the main star of the show–and the frosting…did I taste a little sour cream in there?
LOVE.
Until I’ve tried a few more flavors, Sugar Queen will not trump my current favorite cupcake stand: In the Mix–who you met before (see July 8th post).

You will notice, however, that today’s ccc didn’t make it long enough to be pictured…

Helloooo, lovers

So what’s with all the food posts lately? Easy. I’m planning a beach vacation, trying to get “bathing suit ready.” Ergo, I can’t stop thinking about sugar.

But I digress…

In the Mix cupcakes. Are the best. Better than Sprinkles, better than Dimples, better than any cupcakes in the land. This is subjective, of course–like burgers and pizza, everyone has their own opinion. And in mine, In the Mix: magnifico! Pictured here are my two (current) favorites. Chocolate ganache and lemon. I am also partial to the regular chocolate and the strawberry. And white. And red velvet. Oh, just gimme a cupcake already.

PS: In the Mix has recently been featured as a groupon and living social. But I loved it first, so there.
