A Little Indulgence at Sparkle Cupcakery
It’s safe to say that I’m addicted to sugar. If I didn’t run regularly I’m not sure in what state my body would be in (actually, a pretty blissful one). In any event, I was delighted to pop into the wonder that is Sparkle Cupcakery at the weekend and finally try one of their fantastic cupcake creations. I’m going to keep it real and admit that they’re going to be a staple in my diet from here on in because they’re that good. And on a sidenote, I will need to run more.
Deciding on which flavour to devour was probably the most challenging part of the experience, because there are 15 stunning varieties to choose from. I did, however, finally settled on a delicious Morning Glory; cinnamon with a hint of apple. It married perfectly with my cappuccino and made for a gorgeous little treat by the window as I watched the world go by. Can you see me having a movie-moment epiphany on the left about how my life was so very empty before I met these cupcakes?! Because that’s what was going down.
What surprised me the most was that these cupcakes – made and finished completely by hand, of course – didn’t have the sickly, rich aftertaste that so many cupcakes have. I put it down to the fact that they use high quality ingredients. That, or they have a secret recipe like the Colonel does and they’re not willing to share it. Either way, the result is pure heaven.
