It was over a week ago, on a Friday, in the last fleeting days of February to be exact, and it was delicious. We visited the new Provo bakery, The Sweet Tooth Fairy. We stood at the display case for a good 5 minutes just staring and calling out flavors to each other while the 7 or so staff members dawdled about behind the counter asking us if we knew yet what we wanted. There was only one other non-bakery worker in the store, he sat on the couch cuddling what we first thought to be a baby, but turned out to be a dog wrapped up in a blanket. We had two real babies--my twins--with us (Joel was kind enough to watch Maggie along with his own two daughters--love those 4 day work weeks).
It was dreadfully hard choosing which cupcakes to try. And I just read that they have even more flavors now. So, I honestly don't know if I'll be able to go back because selecting a cupcake will only be harder. Plus, they had cookies. And this flipping huge wedding cake on display--Beth asked them to wrap it up to-go, but they didn't think she was serious. Hmpf! They obviously had never seen us eat before.
Well, after asking 2 different employees with seriously conflicting opinions to tell us their favorites ("I like the orange one." "Oh no! I'm completely disagree!" blah blah blah), we chose vanilla squared, cookies and cream, and strawberry short cake cupcakes and a black and white cookie. We cut them up and shared. And my favorite one really was the vanilla squared. I think they put crack in the frosting--it was that good (okay not like I've ever tried crack or ever will, but maybe, inadvertently, I did--like if it was in that frosting).
Anyway, when I finally rid my family of RSV and banish winter illnesses from my home--that's gonna take a lot of lysol and hand washin'--I know I'll be dying to get out and get me something scrumptious*--so stay tune for the next episode of Cupcake Date with Beth.
*Which isn't to say I haven't been gorging myself on chocolate chip cookies... is it bad to eat 3 dozen in a weekend? At least I made them Amy's way. So, that's good, right?
