It's raining cupcakes! 4/09/08

We all know that there's nothing I love more than a delicious cupcake! This sweet obsession has intertwined quite beautifully within my office, as I officially put myself in charge of "monthly birthday cupcake celebrations." I'd be a liar if I said that I didn't give many bakeries outside of Buttercup a chance, but why mess with such an overwhelming crowd pleaser? I'll tell you when it's time to mess with the crowd pleaser...When the customer service and phone etiquette begins to suck (ahem, take some notes, Buttercup!)!

April birthdays were quickly approaching, so I decided to go out on a limb and try another cupcake company called "A Cupcake Occasion." The website's descriptions and photos intrigued me so much, that I decided to place my first order. How cool is this..I was able to specify my choices online and pay via PayPal! No more nasty salespeople to deal with on the telephone! Yipee!

The entire office was elated with the adorable, indulgent treats so I decided that I'd need to sample each flavor we ordered for myself...Just to be sure! There were: vanilla cake with vanilla butter cream, lemon cake with lemon butter cream and red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and sugar crystals. And the verdict? They were fantastic! I was amazed that I was able to taste the fresh cream that was incorporated in to the delicate icing! Every bite was magnified by its high quality ingredients, which is definitely something you don't taste in the "other" cupcakes.

Conclusion: I highly recommend trying "A Cupcake Occasion" treats for yourself because let's face it, there's ALWAYS an occasion for cupcakes! They taste as outstanding as they look and your purchase supports a small business run by two entrepreneurs...Not generic mass production! Amen, sister!
