I friggin' love cupcakes!! They're an addiction! I'll eat any kind of cupcake...except those from Safeway. Can't do it. Lard and gritty icing forever. No thanks.
I usually hit up my usual cupcake dealer, Cupcakes (www.originalcupcakes.com), and I am super thankful that they opened up another location on Thurlow. That way, I don't have to walk all the way down to Denman just to get my fix. I think that's why I've gained some extra padding. You know, because I don't eat any other type of sweets or pastries. Right.
What I usually do when I buy cupcakes and have to share, I choose favorite flavors and new ones that we haven't tried or that just come out seasonally, and I cut them in half. That way, I get to have all of them and still practice sharing. Gold Star, ME!!
Anyway, I love cupcakes. They also offer tasty cakes, but I don't know. It's not the same. I know they use the same cake batter, icing and flavorings, but I think it's because it's not as cute as cupcakes are.
It's my birthday soon... I hope I get a giant cupcake for my special day. Awesome.
