I’M BACK! I really hope I’m back?
Trying to find time to blog has become tough… I recently got a puppy so my evenings are spent cleaning up, training and tummy rubs. I felt really bad about not posting anything for a while so made it my mission to visit this cake shop which I have been meaning to pop into for a really long time.
Today was the ultimate cheat day which started with a lamb burger special (a steal at R 45.00!) which totally rocked my world… but we not here for that.
I’m lucky to be working in the CBD so there are tons of great food places to check out and new ones popping up literally every day. I walked past The Velvet Cake Co a couple of months back and was genuinely intrigued by the décor; bright colours popping through the windows and picture-perfect cupcakes eyeing you as you pass by.
After building the courage to go inside the shop and take pics (I still feel really awkward doing this) I ordered a sweetie pie cupcake for Claud which is a cupcake with a marshmallow topping, coated with chocolate on a chocolate cupcake base – can you say heaven? I ordered a vanilla caramel cupcake for myself which I probably devoured in 60 seconds flat. Eating this cupcake made my year fo sure, it was everything you want in a cupcake, melt-in-your-mouth buttercream, pillowy soft cupcake with caramel on the inside and sprinkles on the top! Wait, What?! DEAD DEAD DEAD – it was SO good, you might think I’m over exaggerating but it was REALLY that good. Promise.
I got my colleague a red velvet meringue cupcake which he tore apart in 10 seconds and ended up with meringue on his cheeks, pity I didn’t get a pic of that!
