You know when you decide to go on a cleanse, and then all the ferocious cravings just cripple in your mind, and there are little things that you miss, want, need, and badly fantasize about? That time is kind of now for me, as yes it is time for spring body cleanse AND there is one thing that I miss, Oh so much… cupcakes!
Cupcakes are the little gourmet trend that I am a devoted follower to. I can give 6-7 dollars for a cupcake and it will be well worth the three bites. The sad thing is that I haven’t found the perfect bakery here that make real cupcakes, so perhaps I should think about a new venture. But down memory lane there are so many good cupcake times…
Love at first bite (and still my favourite in the whole wide world) was Hello Cupcake on Dupont Circle in DC. The favourite one there – heart of darkness. (I have been told it is made for me 🙂 ) But it is heaven-sent!
Then there came Hummingbird Bakery in Soho, when I lived in London. Ohm the red velvet is divine!
And then of course, when I was back in DC, I discovered the now so very famous Georgetown Cupcake (which are not THAT amazing, but still pretty darn good).
So while reminiscing about the amazingness the cupcakes provide to the taste buds, I decided to look for a little visual on tumblr. And oh boy, what a gallery there is… that is another great thing about cupcakes – they soooo pretty!!! So here is my little sweet slideshow (plus a couple of shots of my own cupcake- archives) 🙂
