Sugar and spice, everything nice

MMmmmmm, mmm, mmm!! is all I have to say....Actually, scratch that. I have a whole lot to say, about CamiCakes Cupcakes.

Last Friday night I was invited out to a "sweetup" in a new bakery in the Buckhead area. I went with little expectations, a little curiosity and a small craving for the sweet potato cupcake that was all the rave with the Funky diva Girl.

Well, I was thoroughly and pleasantly satisfied with this bakery. First of all the owner was genuine and kind. Upon walking through the door I immediately felt drawn in because the decor is simple, yet charming, earthy, soulful and girly all rolled into one visually delicious treat. As I looked around I was so impressed with her pictures of music greats from times past such as the great John Coltrane, Billie Holiday, and Duke Ellington. I began to get a feeling of nostalgia, remembering the things I read about in the Jazz clubs of Harlem, New York. This place has charm I tell ya.... But back to the mmmm, mmmm, mmmm of it all. There were plenty of sample cupcakes to choose from, but once I had a taste of one, I knew I was sold! I quickly made a beeline to the counter and peered at all the cupcakes they offered (with stars in my eyes) and made an order of a half a dozen to take home and two to eat right then.
I had the chocolate raspberry almond cream cupcake and the pineapple toasted coconut cupcake....hmmmm.

Needless to say, my half dozen box never made it to a full 24 hours. My husband and I devoured the sweet little things.
But don't take my word for it. Try them for yourself if you are in the Buckhead area of Atlanta or if you don't mind taking a little trip for a sweet treat, you will not be let down.
I promise.
