A Tasty Treat

Sometimes it’s the little things that make me happy. My mother-in-law left a little package on our doorstep. I opened it up to find this.

She left us some tasty treats from Vanilla Bakeshop! Sometimes, there really are benefits to having your mother-in-law living next door.

In the box was a vanilla cupcake with a strawberry on top for me and a chocolate cupcake for Rob the choco-fiend. I am not a cake person, but I enjoy cupcakes for their frosting to cake ratio. I was a bit reluctant to partake in this cupcake because it was heaped with icing. In my experience, heavy-handed icing equates to inedible cupcakes, even disgusting cupcakes. The over-exuberant use of icing is a diversionary tactic. In this case, I was pleasantly surprised and a bit disappointed that there wasn’t more icing. The icing was buttery and smooth with little bits of vanilla bean in it. It did not have the gritty, overly sweet taste of lesser quality cupcakes. It was airy and reminded me a little of whip cream. The cake was equally tasty. It was moist and delicious and it also had vanilla bean pieces in it. I swear it was like a teeny tiny bit of heaven and it made me smile. Now if only I could figure out how to con Rob out of his cupcake…

  1. I wish my mother in law dropped cupcakes at my door! Hell, I wish ANYONE would drop cupcakes at my door. VBS is almost worth the trip all the way to Santa Monica for me.
