who needs Magnolia?

Every once in a while, usually in December, a new sign pops up in a storefront in my neighborhood saying "coming soon", and we start to get excited because we can't wait to see what they'll be selling.

It's been a while since we saw the sign for Life is Sweet, but the moment we did, I [in particular] have been like a kid, bouncing up and down for the day they'd open.

They opened last Wednesday, and this morning, hub went over this morning and brought back little iced tastes of heaven:

Yes, this is a blatant photostyling imitation of Jane Brocket's beautiful and continually inspiring blog. Jane's much better at this. But I had to try.

So for breakfast today, I had one of the choccy ones [on the right]. Deep, rich chocolate flavor, light, fluffy cake, filled with a tiny hint of whipped cream in the very center. I was bouncing off the ceiling for at least 20 minutes with the sugar rush. This little gem's cupcakes are good through and through -- not just the icing. Oh, heaven.

Hub had one of the lemon ones and loved it. I won't tell you how many he bought for just the two of us, but it's obscene.
