Sweet, Creamy and Unforgetable

Friday, 14 August 2009


There is a place in Portland that is quite close to heaven. It is Cupcakes Jones. Casey (who came to visit me last weekend) and I discovered it while we were reading a guide about the Pearl District over a Sunday happy-hour near the park. She was nibbling on cheese, I was slurping fresh oysters. Life was good but it was about to get better.

I glanced over the word "cupcake" while reading and my eyes quickly shot back.

Me: What's this?
Casey: What's what?
Me: This...
Casey: (Leans in...) Cupcakes!
Me: Should we go?
Casey: Wonder how close it is...
Me: (Consulting the map of the Pearl District).. We could easily walk there...
Casey: Well, call. It might not be open on Sundays.
Me: (We both hold our breath as I dial...) Hello? Yes? How late are you open? Fabulous.

We hit a shop on the way there so as not to appear too eager. The shop was adorable inside and for only $3.25 each here's what we decided on:



Casey went with the chocolate chip cookie dough cupcake with butter cream frosting, cookie dough in the middle and a choc chip cookie on top. She loved it and even got icing in her hair while enjoying the treat.



I enjoyed the red velvet cake cupcake with cream cheese frosting, vanilla bean filling and a sugared pink rose petal on top. Once finished, Casey had to help me wipe cake off of my chin. We loved every minute.

So, I am hungry and looking at the pictures of the cupcakes does not inspire healthy choices.
