When a friend comes into town, you suddenly have the perfect occasion for cupcakes! As a blogger and sugar-lover, people assume that I have been to all the sweet spots in town. For some reason, I hadn't been to Just Baked in Birmingham yet.
It was on my list of "must try desserts," for sure, so when Corinne was in town from Hawaii and asked where I wanted to go, I immediately suggested that we do some cupcake research. She was up for the challenge and we spent a lovely hour at Just Baked - sampling and smiling.
We chose to split a luscious Lemon Cupcake (filled with lemon curd!) and a Grumpy Cake, that has pillows of buttercream frosting dipped in a homemade chocolate ganache. I'm not sure how they arrived at the name, but I assure you, this cupcake left us far from grumpy.
Do you have a "bucket list" for sweets?
