So, we're shut-ins again. Poor little Lucy has RSV and an ear infection. No fun for anyone involved. She's wheezy and coughing and all stuffed up. She likes her funny, hoarse voice, though. She keeps making the funniest noises and sounds, just to hear herself. Anyhow, we've quarantined ourselves so as not to spread this plague to anyone else, but some little pixies brought us a treat today. How can you not feel better just looking at this cheery little cupcake?
I'm pleased to announce that in the last month, not one, but two cupcake places have opened in the Salt Lake area. I've already mentioned Mini's in a previous post, so I'll put in a plug for So Cupcake. It's been featured on our local news with this cool story about how an 8 year old girl created this place after becoming a Make a Wish recipient! How cool! (I felt like a Make a Wish recipient when this little bundle came to my door! Thanks, guys!)
I'm also pleased to tell you that they are different enough that you do not have to declare loyalty to one or the other, you can like them both! Like I can like both Cafe Rio and Bajios and not feel disloyal when I go to one instead of the other. I can love the Barbacoa Pork salad at the former and the Pineapple Shrimp salad at the latter and no one's feelings get hurt. Same with Mini's and So Cupcake! I'd say Mini's is a little more grown up and concentrates on crazy concoctions and gourmet flavors whereas So Cupcake is all about traditional taste and bright colors. That's just an initial observation. AND I just now got wind of a third cupcake place, this time in Sandy, called SugarRush Cupcakes. This may warrant further investigation.
