How 'Bout a Little Cupcake with that Frosting???



So, over on facebook (which by the way, are you following me yet?) I asked if anyone knew of a good place to get cupcakes over in Indianapolis.  I got nothing.  So, I did a little research and found a few places that I thought we could try, one being Gigi's Cupcakes.  So, when I ventured out on my own, leaving TJ at the hotel to fend for himself with a sick Jillian and Monster Jam obsessed Brock, I happen to see Gigi's Cupcakes.  Who cares that I had just had red velvet cheesecake the night before at The Cheesecake Factory, these are CUPCAKES!  So, I went in.  Their shop was really cute and quaint, and their cupcakes looked yummy!  Just take a look...
 I bought four cupcakes, because at $3 a cupcake...Yow-Za, you can't afford a dozen!  Going clock-wise starting with the pink one was a Strawberry Cupcake with a Champagne frosting, then Coconut Snowball, Champagne, and then Wedding Cake.  I was so excited to try the Champagne Cupcake, and it was yummy, but it just tasted like a good vanilla cupcake.  Coconut and Strawberry were good, but the winner for me was the Wedding Cake one.  Soooo good! 




Does that frosting not look like it should be in a large vanilla ice cream cone from DQ???

{And as a disclaimer... I did NOT eat ALL that frosting... I did however SAMPLE each cupcake and then proceeded to eat the majority of the Wedding Cake Cupcake. leaving a big hunk of the frosting uneaten.  It made for an excellent supper!  LOL!)

I went to Gigi's Cupcakes on my last trip for work, I thought they had way too much icing and way too sweet......
