This weeked we re-visited the bakery that inspired this cupcake adventure a few weeks. The bakery is the Sweet Shop in the Hotel Hershey, in Hershey, PA. We got a great deal on a room about 20 minutes from Hershey (through Roomsaver - if you don't use Roomsaver, especially for your last minute getaways you should check it out) so we decided to head down there for the weekend. We couldn't make the trip to Hershey withough stopping at this bakery that we came across on our last trip down there. They make 3 sizes of cupcakes, but we generally opt for the mini's....why? Because you feel slightly less guilty when you eat more than one of them.
Anyway, the little man had fallen asleep in the car so I took the 5 year old in to pick out cupcakes to bring home with us. I let him choose the 6 mini's that we were going to get. He said that he definately wanted the smore's one...which was one of our favorite's last time (so we went with 2 of those) and he wanted carrot cake (one for him and one for daddy) and he said he wanted "velvet cake" so we got one of those and went with one vanilla cake with pink buttercream (which I believe is just a dyed vanilla buttercream). So we got our cupcakes packed up and we headed back out to the car.
When we got to the car though, my husband was getting the baby out - they were coming in to meet up but we were to quick. So we all headed back in and decided to have a little treat in front of the fire before heading back out. So my husband got 7 more mini's (3 for us to eat there and 4 more to bring home). For our snack my husband went with the carrot cake one, I had a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting and peanut butter chips on top and the 5 year old dug into the smores cupcake. They were all just as delicious as they were the first time. The 5 year old devoured the Smore's one - he was so excited that we were br more of them for later. We offered the little guy (16 months) a cupcake and was pushing it away and wouldn't even try it. Good for him - at least I may have one child who likes to eat healthy.
