Eat 'Em Up, Yum!

365-45 Espresso Salted Caramel
Day 045/365

Tastier than fish heads, for our treat this week, we went to A Cookie and a Cupcake. From a choice of strawberry, vanilla, coconut (their special for today), carrot cake, and several others cupcakes, today, we marched off with espresso and salted caramel.

They were spot on with the chocolate cake today. This isn't to say that their cakes are poorly done on other days. Today, the chocolate cake was exquisite -- rich, springy, moist, and comforting.

Espresso buttercream, caramel filling, and chocolate cupcake. Need I say more? Espresso, caramel, and chocolate are a magical trio. Like the cherry atop a sundae, the chocolate covered coffee bean is the bonus saved for last.

Lava salt and caramel buttercream are a great play in contrasts, between discrete and buttery, crunchy and smooth, and the obvious, salty and sweet.

What a treat!
