Anyone out there? At times, Nancy and I feel like we are writing to ourselves. Since we rarely get comments on our blogs, pictures, and videos, we think no one is following us. However, we have been surprised with people coming up to us telling us that they follow our website. We are truly grateful for that and want to thank those who have commented on our pages. The whole reason Nancy and I have this website isn't just for ourselves, it is for you guys! We wanted to have an interactive website where we could share our cupcake experiences, whether we made some cupcakes or went to a bakery, and have you guys commenting back on us. We absolutely need YOUR feedback, or else we don't know that you are there.

Nancy and I are tough cookies, and haters out there aren't going to bring us down...! Although it can be a little discouraging when we get negative feedback and have no positive feedback to counter it. Where are our fans?? Nancy and I are passionate about what we do, but it isn't as enjoyable unless we get feedback from you, and I'm not talking to the haters. The good and bad, we want to hear from our actual fans. Tell us what you think about our blogs when you read them, how delicious our cupcake pictures look, or how silly we are in our videos, just say something please! Be that voice today, and show your support for Krazy4Kupcakes :)

You can start by commenting this blog after you read it. To help you get started I have a few suggestions in what you can talk about.
-Respond to the blog
-Tell us what you are passionate about
-Tell us about a time you have been discouraged and what you decided to do about it

Feel free to visit our youtube site to leave feedback as well :)

Love you guys,

Big Blue!

So guess what?!!! I was in Chicago last weekend and I finally had a chance to try Flirty's Cupcakes!!!!! The day before I checked on Facebook what Flirty's route would be that week and luckily they were going to be nearby my work, which was in front of the Bloomingdales Home Store (2 min walk). When I got to work I was hoping to God that my break would be around that time they were going to be there, and luckily it was! All day I was definitely looking forward to my break, I was so anxious because I'm not going to lie I've been dying to try their cupcakes! When 3 PM came around, my coworker Tal asked if I wanted to hangout during break (little did she know about my cupcake passion). Of course I told her about it, and she had the wonderful experience of trying it with me. We both chose the "Devil in Disguise," which is the red velvet cupcake and they costed $3.25 each. You can check out some pictures that I took in our Flickr gallery on the right side. I really wanted to try the banana flavored, but by the time we got there they had been sold out! :( I also was very indecisive because I've heard people say that the McDreamy and the Peanut Butter cupcakes were the best ones. Oh well maybe next time for sure!

I felt as if the cupcake was smaller than most cupcakes that I've tried. But honestly, I didn't care because the cupcake overall was seriously one of the best cupcakes I've ever eaten in my life. I'm not going to lie, but HANDS down for sure Flirty's Cupcakes are WAY more tastier than Sprinkles Cupcakes. Why, you ask? Well... first of all, this small cupcake had so much flavor and it was definitely very moist and soft. It was topped with the usual, cream cheese frosting and red sprinkles. The frosting also had so much flavor in it, you can totally recognize it was cream cheese for sure. I mean both the cupcake and the frosting had a lot of flavor and texture to it. I know that sounds weird, but most places that I've been to, I felt like the frosting was the one thing that gave the cupcake the flavor and not the cupcake itself. Flirty's has to be the best red velvet cupcake so far. They have my VOTE at least! :) Now I understand why my manager at work would always order them! Ah! Flirty's, I would definitely recommend to everyone who hasn't tried many cupcake places in Chicago. Hunt them down!!! They are so WORTH IT. Once again, you can look up their routes on or I can't wait to try some more, I'm going to see if they are going to be around work again this weekend. I really hope so :).

Oh and Melanie finally had a chance to taste Sprinkles last weekend too! Her mom and her had went, and she bought dark chocolate Sprinkles cake mix! :) Stay tuned for more information on her visit!

After last Friday (when I tried Flirtys), everyone at work found out my obssession with cupcakes and they are looking forward to me bringing cupcakes for them. So the "KrazyforKupcake" girls are at it again, we are going back to work in the kitchen and baking more cupcakes! Lovvve it.

Always & Forever,

The Krazy 4 Kupcake Girls :)

Sprinkles Cupcakes!!!

What is new and has dots all over? ...Sprinkles Cupcakes! Yupp... that's right, I finally had a chance to check out the talk of the town's famous cupcake place! Unfortunately, our other 'Krazy for Kupcake's' girl Melanie couldn't come with me, but a few of my good friends (Sarah & Karen) volunteered to share this wonderful experience with me! Here's a video of what went down: Enjoy!

As you can see, I bought four cupcakes: Strawberry, Cherry, Key Lime & Dark Chocolate. The two flavors Cherry & Key Lime are their summer flavors, which they stop selling on August 1, so I had to get them before they were gone! Each cupcake costed $3.25.

I was pretty excited to go scope out the new cupcake place! I was pretty upset that Melanie couldn't join me in my trip because we've been LITERALLY counting down the days until Sprinkles came to town. It opened last Monday, the 26th of July. And when we visited the line was REALLY long. We waited in line almost for an HOUR. Luckily we made it in time before it closed (at 7 PM). But anyway, once we got inside, the place looked really colorful and very modern. They had a glass window for a display of each cupcake flavor, kind of like More's Cupcakes.

What I thought of the cupcakes? Well, they were of course good. Each cupcake was very moist, just the way I like it and the frosting was very smooth and definitely gave the cupcake more flavor. My favorite cupcake out of the four I chose was definitely the cherry! Awe, too bad it's not going to be there anymore... But at least I had a chance to try it! The key lime was my second favorite, those two I would have to say had the most flavor. The dark chocolate was a tad bit TOO sweet for me and the strawberry wasn't the best. Each cupcake was topped with a sugary dot candy for their signature. Also they put a different dotted color on each cupcake to represent the flavor.

Overall, the place was pretty good. I'm not going to lie, I still think Molly's Cupcakes are the best so far. Sprinkles is up there, BUT they aren't as creative as Molly's. Sprinkles cupcakes kind of taste like Sugar Bliss Bakery off of Wabash Ave. Both places have the same tastes/textures in their cupcake and frosting. I still thought it was delicious, and I would definitely go again! Like Sarah said, the staff was super super friendly too!

But yeah, now that I've had a chance to try Sprinkles... time to hunt down FLIRTY's CUPCAKES!!!!!!!

Until next time...


Love you :)
