It’s Friday and that means it’s time to celebrate the upcoming weekend with a treat. And there’s nothing better than a cupcake. Today I want to highlight my favorite cupcake store. Cupcakery? Heaven? 🙂 It’s a place called…
SusieCakes is THE BEST. I have tasted many cupcakes (even Sprinkles, which I’ve heard so many people rave about), and SusieCakes BY FAR is the best I’ve ever had. Let’s start with the cake itself. It is so dense and hearty. None of that air-filled cake that reminds you of a grocery store special. And hidden inside this cake is a little nugget of frosting! That makes it so easy to keep the frosting always combined with the cake (a very important factor when eating cupcakes). And then there’s the frosting. It’s light yet thick and full of sugary goodness.
Flavors? I’m not sure I can name a favorite, but I love the lemon and vanilla cupcakes. And they have seasonal flavors as well. The peanut butter and jelly is a dream. At first I thought it was odd, and maybe it wouldn’t taste good. Oh no. Let me tell you, it’s like eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich AND having your dessert at the same time.
SusieCakes has other treats, too. Since I’m a cupcake fanatic, I have not actually tried anything else there. But I hear the 7-layer bar is ridiculously good as is the flourless peanut butter cookie.
And isn’t this just the sweetest story- the story behind who Susie is:SusieCakes is in California (Northern and Southern) and Dallas (Plano and Dallas). I hope someday SusieCakes will be EVERYWHERE because I want everyone to experience what the best cupcake ever tastes like! So if you’re in any of these areas, be sure to visit. And you can find SusieCakes on Twitter, Instagram and of course at the website: http://susiecakes.com/ (And if you’re still not certain, the picture in this post is of SusieCakes cupcakes!)

And did you know that my love of cupcakes extends to my writing? There’s a cupcake in every novel I write! Check out Chasing Eveline (releasing July 11!) to find out what flavor I have Ivy eating! (Hint: I was thinking of a SusieCakes cupcake when I wrote it into the story!)
