Since Beth has 2 babies and I have 3, it was a little bit rough. In fact, the van-full of old ladies that blocked the handicapped entrance with their van making it extremely difficult for me to navigate my mondo stroller into the bakery, kept exclaiming things like:
"Oh! Twins! And another one! 3!? Oh, you are so brave."
"Gladys! Look! 3. She's so brave."
"Oh yes! You are brave! Did you see this Peggy?"
Brave? I guess. But the way they were going on about it I felt more foolish than brave. The bakery/cafe really was not accommodating of large strollers. It was pretty bad. I wish I had photos, but we kinda had our hands full of cupcakes and children.
Anyway, the cupcakes were good, disappointing because they were FROZEN, but good. Beth and I each ate half of our frozen cuppy-cakes and then took the other half home to thaw. I got the fudge one and Beth's was almond something. I got a smaller vanilla one for Maggie and Clara to share. I really really like the buttercream frosting on that one (I finished Maggie's because she refused--really? who refuses a cupcake?). The fudge filling in my cupcake was so rich it was a bit too chocolatey for me. But I'd like to try another flavor. The store itself was adorable with checkerboard floors (like I'm going to have someday) and chandeliers and bright colors. But the next time I go, I'd like a fresh (not frozen) cupcake and no stroller.
We've decided to make these little cupcake dates and ongoing thing. Next we're thinking of going to Dipidee or The Sweet Tooth Fairy.
