Yesterday we stopped by Cupcake Jones in the Pearl on a whim. Amazing treats and this is coming from someone who isn’t the biggest fan of cake, in whatever form it may take. The shop offers jumbo sized cupcakes with various fillings or smaller versions, just cake with a dab of frosting. Cupcake Jones offer three standard flavors available every day of the week and three rotating flavors. Friday happened to be cocktail inspired cupcakes day, including shirley temple, orange creamsicle and grasshopper. We ordered four minis, all delicious, but I regretted not also buying milk, which everyone in line before did. Next time, which may be this weekend.
Another cupcake cafe is right in our neighborhood, Saint Cupcake. Another addition to our growing must visit list. The store has an online shop were one can order a cupcake kit. You pick three cupcake flavors, three icings and three types of sprinkles and they ship everything to you, anywhere in the country. My guess is some Carolina folks will be ordering kits in the near future.
