So, after yesterday’s rant, friend K gets in touch with me and suggests coffee and catchup. I mentioned seeing a brand new shop when we were wandering downtown yesterday; she agreed it would be a good thing to go there. I wasn’t sure if it would even be open, but she googled it and found it was.
This is the first professional cupcake I’ve ever had, I think – and I’m so pleased I did. Such an indulgence, but so very lovely. The lemon buttercream icing was perfect and the small square of decorated fondant (already gone by the time I remembered the camera) was a lovely touch.
The shop was nearly sold out when we got there – and the owner has mentioned on her facebook page that she needs to close tomorrow so she can bake more stock.
We grabbed takeaway coffees from a cafe nearby, then sat under the jacarandas at the railway station and just talked. Best afternoon out I’ve had in ages. Thanks, Karen! Just sitting in the sun and chatting has done me a world of good.
Oh, and here’s some more that Karen chose to take home with her:
Chocolate, vanilla, and raspberry and white chocolate, I think. I’m looking forward to trying some of the other flavours next time.
