Falling (momentarily) (also happily) off the wagon

So in Monday's column I kvetched about that nasty cupcake I had at Barnes and Noble to make the point that food should TASTE good. Duh! And I mentioned that I like Mini's here in Salt Lake. Well! I heard from cute Laurlee Morrison of Cakes de Fleur about her cupcakes, suggesting that I give her cupcakes a try. And then she offerred to drop me off a box of them--AT MY HOUSE.

I did not say no.

All right, people, they were excellent--chocolate with chocolate frosting, chocolate with buttercream frosting, carrot and lemon. Heaven! The cupcakes are mouth-meltingly moist. And flavorful, too! Wow. I was groggy with delight.

You can buy Laurlee's baked goods at Emigration Market, The Store, The Store Too, and Pirate O's in Salt Lake City. Or place an order directly at 801 474-CAKE.

(For the record, this is the first time I've ever scored something because of the column. Thank you, Laurlee, for restoring my faith in humanity.)

You're getting FREE cupcakes now? Aren't you breaking some ethical/spiritual law? Damn, I'm jealous.

Cake de Fleur is AMAZING! I'm glad you found them... or that they found you. I've been a follower for years now.

Only a moron would say no to free cupcakes delivered to their home.

BBB said...

Oh... and I read somewhere (two days ago) that you were laying off the cupcakes. I'm glad you've gotten back in tune with what's important though.

I dream of a life where people deliver cupcakes to my door. Why? why?

The cupcake was delicious. I'm sold.

Your blog's front page currently has the word "cupcake" on it eleven times. A little obsessed, eh?

I just remembered that my cousin's wife works for a place called So Cupcake. Their cupcakes are amazing. So...in June, I will come to the conference armed with a Dr. Pepper AND cupcakes.
