Hey guys!

As you can see, we have been keeping ourselves CUPCAKE busy!!!! Recently, we decided to create a YOUTUBE account which will be used like a video blog. If you haven't checked it out yet, please do: We have yet to record more videos to post up! But for the meantime, subscribe to us!!!! Our video blog will contain videos of our cupcake trips, interviews on guests, what happens behind our kitchen and much more other cupcake-fun related things! We both are looking forward to making these videos and we hope you guys are too!

Anyway, in the last post I forgot to mention how Melanie and I went to Strawberry Fest. Strawberry fest is a fun and traditional event held in Long Grove, Illinois. Obviously, from the name, it's a festival with various strawberries and other dessert treats to try, along with shops and music to enjoy as well. That day, Melanie and I stuffed ourselves with several delicious goods. A few were, deep fried cookie dough, strawberry donuts, and of course a strawberry cupcake! There was a bakery shop that was small but had cute decor (they had a very cute cupcake painted picture on their wall), and they served other yummy-looking desserts like the cupcake. Melanie and I decided to split a strawberry cupcake. It didn't look like a regular cupcake, the treat had no cupcake liner, but had prettiful pink frosting and a normal sized strawberry on top. The lady that worked there was very kind, but we thought that the cupcake did not taste as good. The frosting made the cupcake have more flavor but it also was very dry and a little TOO sweet. Sadly, we splitted the cupcake and yet dreadly tried to finish it all. However, the price was affordable ($2.75) and the presentation of the place and treats were nice. I think we both came to a conclusion that cupcakes made from bakeries aren't as tasty as a cupcake from a REAL cupcake spot.

Despite the disappointment, Melanie and I finally had a chance to try Phoebe's Cupcakes once again. We were around the area, and thought why not stop by. Melanie chose the 'Red, White & Blue Cupcake' (a cute themed cupcake for the holidays!), and I picked the 'Chocolate w/ Funfetti Vanilla Frosting'. Both cupcakes were delicious and tasted "non-dog-food-like"!! HAHA. If you don't know what we are talking about, well our first visit wasn't ALL THAT PLEASANT! Oh and Melanie's cupcake was DELICIOUS! HOWEVER.....Since the frosting was a dark blue color, it made her whole MOUTH turn blue. And I mean.... it WAS BLUE!!!!! Funny I must say, but embarassing? Phoebe's...if you guys are reading this? LAY OFF the coloring!! HAHA...

Ah and ALSO we wanted to swing by the Gold Coast to see if when SPRINKLES are going to open!!! HELLO??? We have been waiting for this since last spring, when they said it would open!!!! Now its mid-July...and still no grand opening? I swear it probably won't open until we get back to school... tsk tsk.

Well hope you enjoy this longggg entry!!!! And keep INTUNE for more KRAZY 4 KUPCAKE videos on YOUTUBE!!!!!!

Also to mention... it took only TWO bites of the cupcake to turn my mouth blue...way too much food coloring perhaps?? But it didn't even matter because the cupcake was amazing! A+ compared to the first time!! haha
