Starry Night!

Today's featured flavor is simply dreamy...

Remember art class when you learned all the great artists and what they painted? 

One of the most memorable was "Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh.  It was also one of my favorites.

It is just beautiful, like something from a dream.

This was the inspiration for this cupcake!

This is a moist blue velvet cupcake with a rich cream cheese frosting, topped with a gold star and blue sprinkles...

It is yummy and beautiful all wrapped into one!

Simple Vanilla

It has been a few days since I was able to post a Featured Flavor.
Sometimes life just gets crazy and I turn around and realize I am behind.  So Sorry about that!

I wanted to have a follow-up with my featured flavor to last week's "This N That Thursday" post to tell you about our Simple Vanilla.

This is truly a cupcake that can suit everyone's taste.
It is, as the name states, simple.

This is a Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla cupcake with a vanilla buttercream frosting, topped with a candy flower.

However, it does not have to be that simple!
When placing your order, you are welcome to specify a wide range of topping choices!  
You might want to add some chocolate syrup, or caramel drizzle, candy sprinkles, or possibly even some crumbled peanuts.

So, simple or not, this cupcake is simply good!

This N That Thursday! - Toppings...

Toppings, toppings, we all love toppings!

Ok, I love toppings.
On my food, on my sweets, on my coffee...

Seriously, why have something plain when you can add toppings?

Isn't hot coffee better with a little whipped cream floating around on top!?  Well, yeah!

What would yummy Japanese food be without soy sauce or those little seed things you sprinkle on top (forgive me please for not remembering the name...)!

Don't even get me started on having Mexican food without sour cream and good Pico de gallo!

It is no wonder places like Marble Slab, Maggie Moo's, etc. are so popular.  They let you choose from a whole bar of toppings!

Doesn't matter if it is peanuts, gummy bears, or Oreos.
Personally, I can do without the gummy bears, but my kids like them.
To each his own, right?

For me, I love Magic Shell, chocolate flavor.
Yes, I know.  I am a full grown adult. This is a rare thing that i will admit, but there it is. I just love it.

So, sue me.

My husband likes that crunchy granola cereal.  Seems like he will add it to just about anything.  Yogurt, ice cream, oatmeal.... I could go on and on.  
That is OK.  It makes him happy.

You have probably noticed that I like a variety on my cupcakes, too.
If a request is made for something plain I am happy to do it.

At the same time, I like to offer a variety of options for those out there who like a choice.

For instance: The Simple Vanilla is pretty much just that.  A Simple vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream frosting.  Some folks like it just how it is.

However, if peanuts are your favorite let me know.  You can get it with peanuts on top.  
Or maybe chocolate syrup?
Or Caramel drizzle..... with peanuts?

Just imagine the possiblities!
What are your favorites?
