First may I say, B is a really good man. I mean really. REALLY good. All caps. Not only does he actually want to marry me(!) ((he's crazy, i know))BUT -- he also got me some special cupcakes for my birthday. There is this tiny bakery, in a flower nursery, on the side of the road in Encinitas. And let me tell you, this girl knows what she's doing. Normally, I go into a cupcake shop, and get thoroughly disgusted. Ughh lard icing, poorly chosen icing tips, GARBAGE. Garbage I tell you. But this place is different. The girl who owns it is in always there, with a cute apron and bandanna, baking perfect little confections that even the most particular baker would aprove of. No lard here. Real butter, real vanilla, real delicious. What really gets me??!! Check out the detail in these tasty gems! The buttercream roses. Holy smokes. I'm in love.
