I saved the best for last. I tried a chocolate cupcake with vanilla/cream cheese frosting at work and fell in love with the works of The Twisted Sifter Cake Shoppe (http://www.thetwistedsifter.com/). I'm not a cupcake person---in fact, I normally treat cupcake shops with scorn---but these are definitely worth the $4.77 I paid. (Plus, they're cheaper than every other cupcake place I've seen!)
Key lime pie- even the frosting tasted like lime. This was divine.
Tiramisu- The bottom of this was slightly bitter and soaked with coffee. :\ I shouldn't have waited a day to eat it. The frosting was lovely (vanilla/cream cheese again!) although I couldn't taste the espresso sprinkles.
On Wed., I will be taking a cake decorating class at The Twisted Sifter, learning how to make and work with marshmallow fondant. :D I hope to document this process---having a new hobby is exciting! Rolling out sugar cookies frustrates me greatly, so I am moving to cupcakes to practice my frosting skills. I must make use of the Wilton 52 tip set I have, after all....
