Decadent, Delectable Dessert

D is a good letter.  Gotta love the Tossing It Out A-Z Challenge. Yesterday I went to Rocco's Italian Bakery on Bleeker Street and Carmine.  This is only a six block walk from my job and I have to say well worth it.  I bought my friend/ co-worker a birthday cake since she kept saying "It's my birthday!"  Her cake was a chocolate mousse filling and buttercream frosting.  Ooh, I was so bad and had a piece but I couldn't help it.  Look . . .

Then, I had the nerve to buy a half pound of Italian cookies.  Oh the travesty . . .

After this, I spotted the red velvet cupcakes.  Between the smell of sugar sweet cookies and the waft of coffee in the air, I could not decide what to do.  My senses were bombarded with devilish temptation.  I bought the lot of them and lugged my goodies back to work.  However, I gave my children the Italian cookies so check plus for me!  I gave my youngest and my husband the red velvet cupcakes.  Has my husband eaten his cupcake?  No.  It is sitting in my fridge calling me to come hither and taste its delectable, decadent goodness.  What to do?  What to do?

  8. Boy those are some delicious-looking cakes. It's a pleasure to meet you from the A-Z Challenge!

  9. Oh, those photos make me drool...especially the cupcakes.

    What I wouldn't give for some delicious red velvet cupcakes or red velvet cake for that matter.

    My last two experiences with red velvet cake and red velvet cupcakes were not so good. The cupcakes that I bought lacked flavor and were pretty dry.

    The cake that I bought had flavor but was very dry.

    The last really good tasting red velvet cupcakes that I had were very tasty. It was a few years ago in New York City. Probably Manhattan.

    Now, I wish I asked for the company's business card from the server! lol
