Today was all about the cupcakes!! Yum!
Adam and I decided to have a fun day of driving around St. Louis and eating cupcakes.
I have been wanting to go to a cupcake bar forever.
Jilly's Cupcake Bar is one of the two cupcake bars we have in and around St. Louis.
Today, we decided to have lunch there and get some cupcakes to go!!
Fabulous!! I can honestly say I have never had cupcakes that delicious and beautiful. Here is what we tried.
1. The Carmelita: Chocolate devil’s food cake infused with chocolate syrup, stuffed with carmel, topped off with dark
chocolate ganache, carmel, white chocolate buttercream and a carmel kiss.

2. The Bee Sting: Madagascar vanilla cake infused with lemon and honey syrup, stuffed with a honey lemon curd and topped with lemon cream cheese, toasted almonds, lemon candy dust, a sugar bee and a white chocolate and lemon honeycomb bark.

3. The Turtle: Chocolate devil’s food cake infused with chocolate syrup, stuffed with marshmallow buttercream and topped with a chocolate ganache, drizzled with dulce de leche, praline pecans, a toasted marshmallow pretzel stick and a chocolate dipped graham cracker.

4. And the Missylicous: Madagascar vanilla cake infused with vanilla syrup and stuffed with vanilla whipped cream, topped with two shades of pink tinted Tahitian vanilla buttercream, a dollop of vanilla buttercream and two shades of pink and pink glitter.

All I wanted was to try their Twisted Red Velvet Cupcakes and NO JOKE, the girl in front of me took the last one :( It's ok though. These cupcakes were huge. Adam and I each had half of each cupcake (they are big). We still haven't eaten the Turtle cupcake though. Right now, by far, the Carmelita was the best :)
I am hoping that when we get back from the cruise, we will be able to check out The Cupcakery (the other cupcake bar). By looking at the website, their cupcakes seem cheaper and they have a wider variety. We shall see!!!
Well, I obviously have had wayyyyy too much sugar today so I am off to drink the biggest glass of water ever!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!! One more week until we are off to cruise The Caribbean :)
