I love cakes. I love how pretty they are. I love how tasty they are. But if you have read this blog semi-religiously, you would know that I don’t always succeeds in my baking celebrations (see Chocolate Cake Day and Pancake Day).
In addition to my baking skills amounting to far below a bakers dozen, I live in a tiny apartment and cake decorating things just weren’t on the list of things to fill my tiny kitchen with.
So with that being said, I do what I do whenever I am in a celebration bind…I outsourced!! So on my way home, I stopped at More. It’s another cupcake place between my house and work.
I figured that I should get a cake of the cup variety that is decorated well. And I did. It wasn’t really the flavor I initially wanted, but it was the prettiest.
It’s lemon meringue!! And it’s so pretty. I really wanted to get the cookies and cream or the vanilla velvet. They were much less pretty. By the way, this is the same place Chelsie and I got cupcakes when she was in town. Anyway, I was so pleasantly surprised when I bit into this. I found this inside.
There was lemony goo inside, and I mean that in the best way possible. It was so good. I was thrilled. This cupcake experience reminded me why I want to be good at cake decorating. I want to be able to create this amazingness in the comfort of my own home and painfully small kitchen. Wait? What? More like I want to just know how to accomplish things like this in someone elses large pretty kitchen.
Outsourcing is delicious (and much less messy).
