The other week, when I took the boys to the eye doctor, we spotted a new shop across the street. That didn't surprise me, because that store front is something different every time I go down town. What did suprise me was that it is a cupcake shop. Who knew you could have an entire store for just cupcakes?
I am not into cupcakes. I am not really into anything sweet. Chocolate? Yes. Sugar? Not so much. But what I am into is pink. And I knew my little pink princess would love to go into this store. Later in the week I had to bring the girls for their check up so I made a date to take Elisabeth to the "Pink store."
And everything truly was pink.
We made some choices from the non pink cupcakes. A red velvet for Pa. Chocolate, orange, a chocolate with cream cheese icing.
With cupcakes in hand, we headed out into the beautiful afternoon
for a walk through the beautiful down town.
Pass the ice cream shop
And the Flights of Fancy
And the coffee house
And the umbrellas
And the great old shops
And a neat picture, just because....
So in we went. I loved the tall domes on these. Otherwise, I was not impressed.
We decided to get a few so we could compare. Key lime, lemon and salted caramel.
The cakes were dry and too sweet from both bakeries. We thought our Hershey chocolate cake is millions times better than their chocolate cake. The flavors were lacking in all the cakes. We liked the marshmallow type icing at Angel Cakes much better then the icing at Angela's. We thought the customer service was better at Angela's. The cupcakes themselves were pretty enough, but for $2.50 and $2.75 a piece, I thought they were very small. I could make a whole cake for that price.
In summary... truth be known, it was a fun outing with my girls. However, we decided we could still live without cupcakes.
