My hiatus is over =) (May 10, 2010)

Yes, that is right! I accomplished a MONTH without desserts. After the very long month, I was eager to try some cupcakes. I wanted to not only have a cupcake, but to try out a new cupcake place. So yesterday(Sunday) Nancy and I hopped on the bus to go to Bleeding Heart Bakery. We were both excited to explore a new bakery. Right away, I could see that this wasn't an ordinary cupcake shop. The shop had an alternative theme with tattoos and skulls. In front of the bakery there was a sign that said "Organic Bakery" and indeed the bakery was true to their words. Most of the cupcakes were vegan, and I noticed that they used organic milk for all of their other products. It is a bakery, so they offer cupcakes, cakes, doughnuts, cookies, bars and various of other things to satisfy your sweet tooth. Nancy and I got there at the right time. We still had a long wait, about 7 minutes, but shortly after we sat down to eat, the bakery filled up with a ton more people. I swear the line did not move for almost 10 minutes. Nancy ordered the chocolate peanut butter and I got the chocolate raspberry. Both of the cupcakes were chocolate but Nancy's came with a peanut butter frosting while mine had raspberry frosting. The cupcakes were pretty cheap ($2.75) which is a plus, and if you want to get the more elaborate cupcake flavors, it's only $3.25. We grabbed some metal spoons, which I understand they don't want to be wasteful in providing plasticware however some spoons seemed dirty. Luckily, the cupcake made up for the lack in proper silverware and our moderate wait in line. We agreed the cupcake itself wasn't too special but I thought the frosting was one of the best that we've had so far. The cupcake was moist and the frosting was just the right amount of sweetness and tons of flavor. Overall the cupcakes were good but the place felt a little bit dirty, perhaps because it was a small shop with overcrowding decor. And I was not too crazy about waiting in line for so long. At least Nancy and I could say that we have been there, I am just not sure if we will return.

In other news, SPRINKLES is opening up in Chicago very soon and guess who will be one of the first customers?? We are dying to try west coasts best cupcakes! Unfortunately the website does not have the exact date on when they will be opening up.

You'll hear from us very soon,
