Sprinkles and Hello
Sorry it’s been a little while since I’ve posted. I have so much going on sometimes it feels like I can’t get all my ducks in a row. It’s been so crazy with work and trying to travel but also making sure I take some pictures to post. It’s like a never ending cycle of trying to balance everything out.
I am finally able to just sit down and write out a few blog posts I’ve been meaning to write!!
My moms birthday was on the 13th so I wanted to do something special for her because she hates celebrating so I wanted to do something for her so that she remembers how wonderful and amazing she is. The rest of my family wasn’t going to be in town the weekend of her bday so I asked her to come stay with me for the weekend so that we could just have a girls weekend and hang out and watch movies!
She ended up coming over Sunday morning and we watched moves and crocheted all day. I took her to lunch and we went to this super cute cupcake place called “Sprinkles” and omg they had the cutest little shop and cupcake atm that you can use after hours!!
So of course I had to take pictures because why wouldn’t I. I’m supposed to be a blogger right?? Haha so I took a few at the cute little atm and then went back to my apartment to take some pictures of the cupcakes themselves because let’s face it y’all, cupcakes that cute deserve pictures taken of them (;
We purchased a half dozen cupcakes, and we chose the flavors:
-peanut butter chocolate chip
-chocolate peanut butter
The cupcakes themselves are decorated very elegant and precise, it makes them feel boujie and chic. As far as flavor, the cupcakes are very moist and rich in flavor. I could tell the recipe used a lot of flour in the batter, the cake doesn’t hold as much sugar as the icing does, which causes the cupcakes to taste very rich. But this is a good thing for me. As much as I wanted to taste of all the flavors we got in one sitting I just couldn’t, I had to save them for later.
Out of all the flavors I definitely couldn’t choose between the salted caramel and the carrot as my favorite. I definitely will have to go back for a tie breaker (;
As for my stomach. We are nursing back to health from all the sweets from this weekend! So glad I was able to finally try this cute shop after all this time!!
Until next time,
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
These bacon wrapped asparagus were SO easy to make, and honestly they came out so stinking good, I have seen so many people make them and they always look so yummy but I never thought about making them. BUT I had some bacon that was going to go bad if I didn't use it soon and of course I always have an asparagus bunch in my fridge because me and Virgil are obsessed with asparagus, so we keep it in the fridge as much as possible.
On the plus side of these babies is that they are incredibly easy to make too! If you try my recipe, tag me on insta so I can see! @cocojessie7.
Here's my recipe, ENJOY!
