my favorite cupcake

Imagine my surprise when I find out that the little cupcake bakery next door to the Panera I’ve been studying at all week was the winner of Best of 2008.

The story from the owner, “In early 2006, Maki’s daughter Chloe was born. The first two weeks of Chloe’s life were uncertain and fraught with major health concerns; doctors suspected she had a rare eye cancer. Miraculously, Chloe’s eye cleared up, and turned out to be perfectly healthy. In celebration of that miracle, Maki marked Chloe’s first birthday with a party, baking over 100 cupcakes for the occasion. The beautiful and delicious cupcakes were such a hit that Maki began thinking about opening a cupcake business. Soon after, Maki’s close friend Heather was asked to provide food for a large church event. Heather decided to make cupcakes and enlisted Maki’s help to design them. The two of them enjoyed their creative collaboration so much that they decided to forge a partnership.”

So after seeing all the signs, I knew I had to try one of my favs, the red velvet cupcake. It was moist but my goodness, the frosting on top was heavenly! Just perfect. It was bursting with flavor but not heavy. It perfectly complimented my cupcake. mmmmmmmm
