Life threw me a curve ball lately… y’know that baby I was expecting? Well… I’ve been horridly sick with the pregnancy & finally went in to my OB/GYN last week for my first appointment (I was 11 weeks along). My doc did an ultrasound (like she always does in her office for the first visit) & found the baby, but no heartbeat. The baby had died at 9 weeks along. I had surgery last week to fully terminate the pregnancy. It’s been an exhausting emotional rollercoaster, but life (& my hormones, thank goodness!) is getting back to normal. I’m really hoping this will mean that I can get back to posting regularly here now, so expect more posts soon!
Perhaps it’s because of all this stress or maybe it’s purely hormonal, but all I want to eat right now is sweet, sugary baked goods!!! Thus, I thought it perfectly appropriate to highlight Cupcake Chic cupcakes today. Boy, are these cupcakes AMAZING. I’m not even exaggerating a little bit. I’ve never had a cupcake more moist and full of flavor than these gorgeous babies!!! If I had to pick a favorite, I don’t think I could. I’m generally very particular and always get the same flavors or the same meals, but I’ve not yet been disappointed by Cupcake Chic so I like to be surprised and snag something new each time.
One of my favorites is Cupcake Chic’s vanilla cupcake with strawberry icing. Oh-my-yumminess!!! The vanilla cake is so moist that it melts in your mouth while the strawberry icing tastes like you’re biting into real strawberries.
And while I’m naming favorites, I ought to mention the Cupcake Chic coconut cupcake. It’s sassy & super-sweet. I’m not much of a coconut fan, either, so this was a surprise favorite.
I just found Cupcake Chic’s blog – I’ve been a long-time fan of their website and – of course – their cupcakes. The blog is awesome, giving fabulous updates on their happenings and whereabouts so that I can properly stalk their sweet treats.
As with other lovely creative chicks I’ve highlighted, Cupcake Chic is owned & operated by the most adorable chick, Trista. She’s a mommy & is just about the nicest person you’ll ever meet. I think it’s her sweet personality that rubs off to make her cupcakes EXTRA sweet. Love you, Trista!!!
If you’re in Utah, you must track down a Cupcake Chic cupcake. It’s as important as visiting the mountains or downtown Salt Lake City.. truly. Trista may be shipping these incredible cupcakes nationwide once the weather cools down a bit…. let’s hope so!
