One of my guilty pleasures…

I love dessert, but I don’t eat them. From the sugar, eggs, and lots of cream, I totally avoid desserts when possible. However, I do admit I enjoy watching CUPCAKE WARS!!!

I mean, who knew baking & competing for the covenant title of Cupcake Wars, could be so brutal?!

A good ol' visit to Mr. Paddington Bear shop kiosk @ Paddington Station.

New Bike Rentals kiosks all around town. Very green concept. I love it.

Can't forget about the cupcakes!

497 Calories and Counting…

I was strolling through Beverly Hills yesterday and was amazed to see the crazy line outside Sprinkles. I thought this whole cupcake frenzy was over, but apparently Sprinkles has still got it going on. The line was at least 20 deep (outside the door) and people were so excited to get their hands on those sinful cupcakes. One thing I did notice is that there were some “plus size” folks in line. At 497 calories per red velvet cupcake, I can see why people are busting out of their seams. If you’re on a diet, please stay away from Sprinkles, and have a nice day!

My dear friend Jess got me this awesome gift for Christmas.  As you can see, I cheated and already opened it!  It’s the “Hello Cupcake” book, which features a ton of creative ways to decorate cupcakes.  I actually made carrot cake cupcakes last night, and they turned out delicious!  I had no time to get into the decorations b/c it was late night, but I will definitely share some of my creations later!

 

If you love to bake, this is a must have book for you!  Lots of great ideas for parties, holidays, and something just for fun.


Effin cute cupcakes!
