Sprinkles

Okay, I've found the world's best dark choclate cupcake and it's sold at Sprinkles in Newport Beach.  The original store is in Arizona, then they built one in Beverly Hills and now here.  It happens to be across the street from the Newport Public Library where I go to work.  I have been very careful about responding to the call of my name from these buttery chocolate delights and have had only two in the two weeks I've been here.  Last night, I bought a box of four, two red velvets for Mary Ellen and two dark chocolates for me.  I get home and she calls me.  "I have a surprise," she says.  She has bought four cupcakes, two red velvet and two dark chocolate.  Big horse laugh.  Our biggest decision is whether to eat a healthy dinner or snarf down the cupcakes.   We opt for dinner and one cupcake.

This time she picks me up and when we go back to my house; I don't have my keys.  Happily, the guest room window is unlocked and I climb in.  We eat our cupcakes and take silly pictures of ourselves on Photo Booth.  Perfect girls night out.

I am reaching for cupcakes through my computer screen as we speak. You KNOW I've already gone to the dark can't-say-no-to-myself place where cupcakes are concerned . . .

When you venture back to Utah and are in the SL area; there is an amazing little cupcake shop named Mini's on 800 South (14 West). Their cupcakes are great. Maybe not California lovin and beach great, but great non the less.
