San Diego Here I Come!

The rumor is San Diego has a LOT of cupcake bakeries.  It sounds like the perfect place to do a cupcake tour.  What is a cupcake tour you ask?  Well it is when you go and visit several cupcake bakeries in the same general area and review and rate them.  That is my version of a cupcake tour.  My best friend, her daughter and the daughters friend and I went on a cupcake tour in Austin, TX back in May.  It was a blast!  Don't be fooled, not all cupcake bakeries are good, believe me.  We found out the hard way.  One of the places left me with a bad taste in my mouth, literally.  I could not get that greasy weird taste out of my mouth even after rinsing it out with water and chewing gum.  Some cupcakes are dry.  I am not a fan of dry.  I just won't eat a dry cupcake.  So I am headed out to San Diego and I have picked several cupcake bakeries to review.  I will be posting my results when I get home.  It is a hard job but someone has to do it. 

Oh and if you find yourself in Austin the two cupcake places I can highly recommend are Polkadots Cupcake Factory and Sugar Mama's Bakeshop.

Hi, Trisha! I am new to your blog. I was sorry to hear of your wreck. How terrible! I read one of your older posts about the pretzel/m & m/ kiss treats and wanted to tell you that they are really cute using the Hershey's hugs - the stripes make people think "how did she do that??"! At Christmas, they are so nice to fill in a plate of homemade cookies with.

Thank you for following. I hope to get some things squared away so I can post more often. I have seen the pretzel snacks made with the hugs. They are really cute. Actually the ones I saw were topped with a pink m&m and they were for a zebra party. The hugs were perfect for that.
