These Things Need a Warning Label

Something that reminds you that an impending sugar crash is imminent an hour or two after you eat it. It's not that I didn't know that. I just got swept up by the visual appeal of the thing, then the delicious moistness of the cupcake took over and finally the rich sugary, vanilla goodness of the frosting grabbed me. Note the relative proportions of cupcake to frosting. There really is just about an equal volume of cake to frosting, if not a bit extra frosting on the Wedding Cupcake (and also on the Birthday Surprise cupcake). And that's real buttercream frosting too, not that pasty, gummy stuff made with shortening or lard.

The cupcake is by Gigi's Cupcakes. You can find their menu here. What was really cute was that the box of assorted cupcakes that showed up at work came with a full color picture menu so you could figure out what flavor cupcake you were selecting. I've had the Miss Princess before too. The strawberry cake was splendid. The strawberry buttercream on the Strawberry Shortcake is also very flavorful. I'd like to try the Pink Lemonade, Lemon Dream Supreme, Merry Margarita, Key Lime and Pumpkin Cream some time. If you like chocolate, any of the cupcakes made with Devil's food cake would be an excellent choice for you. They are seriously darkly chocolate, but with just the right amount of sweetness.
