Icing OverloadPosted: March 12, 2011
Hi, friends! I hope you’ve been enjoying your weekend so far :) I certainly have!
What started off my weekend on the right foot? The lovely people at Chobani, of course!
I was in touch with a fantastic Chobani representative, Emily, and she sent me a sample of 12 flavors! I can’t wait to try black cherry and mango :)
Cory and I headed to Richmond around noon and when we got into town, we headed straight to our first appointment: cupcake testing at Frostings!
I told Cory how happy I’d be if we could just lay down and have them squirt icing into our mouths. I think he gagged a little bit. Whatever.
The lovely people at Frostings let us pick out any cupcakes we wanted to try. It was fabulous.
From left to right:
- The Classic vanilla bean cake with vanilla buttercream frosting
- Cookies and Cream chocolate cake, vanilla cream filling, crushed Oreo buttercream frosting
- RED VELVET CAKE! classic southern cocoa cake with vanilla buttercream icing (ohmygoddd)
- Chocolate Hazelnut rich chocolate cake, NUTELLA FILLING, chocolate hazelnut frosting
- The All American rich chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream.
We’re going back later today to try their Saturday special – the Coconut Cupcake coconut cake, cream cheese frosting topped with shredded coconut.
We did some major damnage
The Red Velvet was the obvious favorite. The Nutella filling in the Hazelnut Cupcake was phenomenal. I could eat cream cheese icing all day, every day ;)
When we left, I was in a sugar coma. I got such a headache. I’m no stranger to sweets – but I definitely overdid it on the icing. The girl who was working with us was asking us questions, and I was answering in between licks of icing. It was probably embarrassing.
After the cupcakes we headed across town to check out some limos!
I don’t know what it is is about limos, but I think they’re so fun :)
We spent the rest of the day hanging out. We stopped by the Apple store to see if we could snag an iPad, but the line was ridiculous! We’ll be going back later today.
We’ve got another busy day of reception planning – so I better go get ready! There is this fantastic fro-yo place in Richmond called Sweet Frog, and Cory promised me a trip :D I think all the frosting is out of my system – so I’m ready to bring on more sugar :D
Enjoy your Saturday!
Let’s chat – What’s your favorite Chobani flavor? Which one of those cupcake flavors sounds the best to you? Did you stand in line for an iPad?
