Just Around the Corner

May 29, 2018

Did you know that I live super close to a bakery/cafe that serves cupcakes? This may be the first time I've been in such close proximity to cupcakes (minus the summer I lived close to Sugar Bliss in Chicago). But the strange thing is, I haven't tried the cupcakes until a few days ago. In lieu of flowers, I decided to get a colleague a celebratory cupcake for a recent performance. And since Cafe Europa was just a quick walk from my apartment, I thought it was the perfect time to finally try their baked goods.
They had about six flavors available at $3 for each giant cupcake. I settled on a chocolate for the colleague and a carrot for me. 
I so wanted this to be a great cupcake but sadly, it was not. Too dry until I got to the middle of the cake and the frosting also fell victim to dryness. Plus they were refrigerated and having them sit out at room temperature could not revive them to a decent texture. 

I have had lunch at Cafe Europa so I'll gladly patronize again for a meal but just not for any cupcakes.
