California Cupcake!

I have never been to Cali. but I hope to remedy this in the near future. My friend Sarah and her husband Matt just moved out to Pasadena and I miss them a lot. However, it's given me a good excuse to find out what Pasadena has to offer in the way of cupcakes, so I know where to spend my time when I arrive for my visit! I sent Sarah and Matt on a mission to find out about Dots Cupcakes and here is Sarah's review:

"Checked out that cupcake place you sent me to. I love that you sent me on a “mission.”

Anyway, it was small and cute and a little oriental woman took Matt and my order. We asked her which ones were the best and she said the red velvet is a favorite and then some others. I got a red velvet and Matt got something like a chocolate peanut butter cup thing. They were both very good! Moist and very tasteful. I’d go back.

Also, as we were leaving several different types of people went into the store.

4 out of 5 stars. (5 if it had been your store)


So there you go, Good Cupcakes in Pasadena, spread the word. And thanks Sarah for the review!

Cupcakes and a movie

Don't you wish they served cupcakes at the movies? I know I do! Next time you have friends over to host a movie night serve up some of these Salty Popcorn Cupcakes! My oldest sister loves salty and sweet. Every time we go to the movies she gets a bag of popcorn and dumps a bag of M&M's on top. And I have to admit, it tastes so good! So this cupcake is inspired by her for her. Sweet caramel cake with milk chocolate ganache frosting then topped with salty popcorn. Try adding some popcorn to your favorite cupcakes for a nice surprise. Just make sure you serve them pretty quick so the popcorn doesn't get stale.
