Cupcake Crawl!

So I’ve been a little remiss in giving you all the down low on the Cupcake Crawl we went out for on Saturday afternoon that Miss Erica planned.  I was looking forward to it ALL week and it was the perfect way to satisfy my sweet tooth!

We started out at Sweet Retreat on 50th and France.

Obviously, there were lots of choices.

Clockwise from Top: Choczilla, Kevin's Vanilla Princess, S'mores, Vanilla with Chocolate, Cookies n' Cream

We decided the best way to love these was to buy a bunch, and then split them into quarters.  I got to sample the Choczilla and the Cookies n’ Cream.

I may or may not have grabbed some extra sustenance to-go in the form of a Peanut Butter Cup cupcake.  It was totally necessary.  My only qualm with cupcakes are that they’re impossible to enjoy in a leisurely way.  You pretty much have to commit and go for some semblance of speed before the thing falls apart on you.

It stood no chance against me.  The peanut butter frosting was incredible and there were mini-peanut butter cups at the bottom of the cake.  I will definitely be visiting this place again, and sooner than later.

We also visited the Cake Eater Bakery in Minneapolis.  Basically, it was epically disappointing.  About half of their case was Vegan and I’m just gonna say it, because someone has to.  If you don’t bake with real butter (margarine or anything else of that ilk does not count), you’re absolutely kidding yourself.

My favorite part about this place was the fact that Lindsey would take a bite of one of the cupcakes at our table and then would immediately turn to the garbage can next to our table to spit it out.  I tried the Vanilla and the Red Velvet.  Both were below-average.  I totally passed on the vegan cupcakes and the Mexican Chocolate.  The other half of our group also sampled their bacon cupcake.  Basically, this place was 100% confusing to me.

It was such a cute idea and I would love to go on another one (or organize one!) to try some of the other cupcake spots I haven’t been to in the cities!
