Cupcake, Cupcake, Cupcake

POST #    1373

Break out the insulin, because here come the cupcakes. Last night, I went to check out Clare Crespo's book signing in the West Village. Clare is the author of "Hey There , Cupcake!" There didn't seem to be any of her creative cupcakes around, but there were certainly lots and lots of cupcakes. Some surmised that these were from Magnolia Bakery, but I am without confirmation. Cupcakes everywhere. On the coffee table, on the dining table, in the back yard, everywhere a cupcake. I wonder if there were cupcakes in the bathroom (even though that would be disgusting).

And add cupcakes to my amazing eating feats (two slices, five bites). I managed to finish one cupcake in three bites. Three seems like a lot, but the first bite is difficult, especially when you don't want to get frosting on your face.

Thanks to RKB for alerting me to this cupcake feast and Heidi for being a witness, willing or not.

what, no picture of you stuffing a cupcake in your mouth?

i prefer the frosting and usually shove the cake off on a loved one who doesn't mind that the top is missing.

You are ON for the challenge of how-few-bites-it-takes-to-eat-a-cupcake at my party November 14th (RSVP details here"). I ate way too many though - I think five over the course of the night cause I squirreled some away. They were so good though!

Love the lovely cupcakes.
Coveting the lovely cupcakes.
Send the lovely cupcakes.
I think I might have to make my friend's birthday cake (for Saturday) actually be birthday CUPCAKES!

they were great cupcakes, though the cake itself was a teeny bit dry to my taste.

(but for free cupcakes, they were perfect.)

Now I'm very sad (and hungry) that I didn't join you all . . .
