Day 83: Vanilla Bake Shop
Vanilla Bake Shop is one of those places that just gets it right. Swanky decor, cute little mini cupcakes, and friendly service. I first came to Vanilla after buying a Groupon deal for mini cupcakes, although I have been eating them at parties for a while now -- they're pretty hard to resist. Today I went in to pick up a dozen mini cupcakes to bring to Cynthia's house for dinner. Beckett did the choosing, and picked a nice lineup of dark chocolate, red velvet, lemon raspberry, and banana chocolate chip. A dozen mini cupcakes cost 20.00, which is pretty reasonable. While we were there a young woman came in to test potential cakes for her wedding. I would totally smear red velvet cake on my groom's face. Or maybe they could build a 7-tier extravaganza made of dozens of mini's...yum.
