Cupcakes are the new black

Since we have had some strawberry cake talk previously, I thought I would share one of my favorite desserts with you. We had the opportunity to have them this weekend, and they are greatness. Sprinkles cupcakes with about an inch of icing. Yum.
We like strawberry, and I hope I don't sound like an 8th grade boy by saying that paired up like this they resemble female anatomy just a little bit. But it is not a pair of boobs, its my favorite sweet treat.


Sprinkles started in Beverly Hills and now Dallas has one. If you haven't had one yet, they are lots of fun. I have tried all different flavors, and I still stick with strawberry. It it REALLY sweet icing and not so sweet cake, and I like that combo. I have to get a bite of icing in every bite of cupcake but that is not really hard to do b/c of how much icing they can pile on. My ambition is to be able to make my icing that thick at home, but it must have an ingredient that makes it able to layer so well b/c at home mine just smears around. That might be because its out of a Betty Crocker jar, but I am not sure. I am pretty sure they might make theirs from scratch, but, again, that is just a guess.

I went to Sprinkels once but the line was FOREVER long and it was FREEZING outside...not good for an impatient baby! Sounds delicious so I'll have to go back! By the way...nice boobs!

The first thing I thought when I saw the picture was "hee hee... those look like boobs." I'm sure they are delicious - the cupcakes.

At Thanksgiving a parent at our school was spreading holiday love and brought a carrot cake/spice cake with cream cheese icing. My team split it, meaning we each got 1/3--I'm not sure I could have handled more. Complete bliss! I hope Jesus has them in heaven!!!

I am thinking yes- if we are feasting for 7 years, I think we will all get our own cake, right? No calories in heaven!!
