Warning : FOOD PORN AHEAD!


I keep driving by Lovely Confections on Colfax and always thought: "HMM I have to try
them sometimes." After all, I tried most of the cupcake joints in town already,and this one is practically in my own backyard. Plus,Friend Lovely Miss Jane had first hand love of the place so today was the day for my exploration. I was warmly greeted and had a hard time deciding what to get. As today is ST. PATTY'S (me ) day, I was informed that any cupcake with a shamrock on the bottom was free,so I went for it.
I got a chocolate with vanilla butter cream frosting, a vanilla with chocolate ganache like frosting and WEEEEEE!, Wouldn't you know it, a shamrock stickered carrotcake cupcake for free! I never win anything!


Beautifully decorated and not dry I had a nice little nosh at home with the Chocolate one. Not cloyingly sweet, nicely dense and richly flavored. The icing was pretty nice too...and here's my sacrilegious confession: After a few bites I scraped most of the icing off. I KNOW! I KNOW! STOP YELLING AT ME! What can I say but, I'm a "big cake,little frosting" kinda gal. So if you want to get a frosting overload take me with you on yer next cupcake bender and you can have most of my icing. O.K?


I'm pretty stoned on cupcake now..so the other ones will have to wait for me
to recover. Can't wait to see how the carrot cake one is!
So yeah, I'd say that's a good place to get your fix in. Nice hang out joint, free wi-fi, coffee..comphy looking sofas,and a friendly face behind the counter!

Now excuse me, I have to prepare for tonights festivities of watching everyone else
get snackered on green beer.
And as it IS the Irish Holiday of all Holidays:



HAPPY FOOKIN" ST. PATTYS DAY!!

Flogging Molly will be here in a few months..can I STAND IT!????
WOOOOOO!!!!!!
This time I KNOW not to stand up at the very front!



Music of the day: DUH! FLOGGING MOLLY
food of the day: cupcake!
mood of the day: sugar buzzed!

That was likely Porsche behind the counter. She's awesome. So are the cakes. I'm glad you liked it! Plus, made with organic and local ingredients. Even the sprinkles!
