I had the pleasure of eating my way through Chicago's cupcake shops... I only hit up four of them, and seriouly each was better than the one prior. So I won't say which order I went in- but the red velvet was from The Cupcake Counter, The "Happy" ones are from Swirlz and the chocolate lovelies are from Molly's. I also took a picture of their sign out front because it was perfect, as is their website: www.mollyscupcakes.com
Now to bake some of my own goodness
You know how you can walk in somewhere and feel home immediately? I had that happen this weekend.
I went to Chicago to check out the last stop. Perhaps I saved it for last because I knew in my heart I would love it and didn't want to be biased. I don't want to call it out yet... I don't want to jinx myself and anyhow, there are about 12 things I need to do and have to make work in order for this next part of my dream to become a reality.
Either way, I walked in and felt like a recruited athlete. They rolled out the red carpet for me and I was in awe, humbled and so inspired. Surrounded by people who were just as excited about flour, butter and sugar as me- it was a sugar high for sure.
AND! and... I FINALLY had dinner at Frontera Grill. yup! it lived up to my every expectation and then some. had some fiiiiine tequila as well. was a good, good night.
lots and lots to think about and discuss. ahhhhh! seriously, I'm so giddy and inspired.
Which is good timing because I have to start PRACTICING for #1's upcoming b-day cake.
Can anyone say "Yoooooooooooooooooooo Gabba Gabba!!!"
I'll post my results later
