Icing Overload

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 😀 I think all the frosting is out of my system – so I’m ready to bring on more sugar 😀

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?

    • Colleen says:

      I tried peanut butter just because of you! It was SO good! Thank you for the idea 🙂 I’m usually just plain vanilla + my weight in rainbow sprinkles.

  4. i’m so jealous you get to try lemon. i’ve been waiting forever and no one around me has it!

    Ohmygod those cupcakes look amazing! And that’s awesome you got so much free Chobani – I can’t wait to try the pineapple and mango flavors. Can’t wait to hear how they are!

  7. Jamie says:

    Looks like you are having a great time, best! Love the pictures of the cupcakes. That display of deliciousness is just too much to handle. The red velvet cupcake sounds amazing!

  8. Jenny says:

    Omg I think I would die in a cupcake tasting!!! Lol so many flavor I wouldn’t know where to begin! 😀

  9. I bet getting to go to cupcake tastings makes the stress of planning a wedding SO worth it! 😀 The cookies and cream one sounds incredible.

  10. Don’t hate me everyone, but I can’t standdd the aftertaste of Greek yogurt. I love the flavor initially, but I can’t take it at the end. I’m debating on just sucking it up JUST so I can try the mango and black cherry flavors.

    • Colleen says:

      I totally understand! I used to GAG when I ate Greek yogurt. My only trick is adding in crunchy toppings like cereal, nuts or granola. It’s just so THICK by itself.

  11. That array of Chobanis looks delicious, as do the cupcakes! Can’t decide which selections I’d prefer…okay, obviously the cupcakes 😉

    My favorite Chobani flavor is peach! The red velvet cupcake sounds amaaazingg! I didn’t stand in line for an iPad, but I ordered one! I’m anxiously waiting for it to arrive.
