Chris and I are in a little shop called Sweet! They have gourmet cupcakes, frozen custards and yogurt. The man, who seemed to be the pastry chef, was explaining to us all the different cupcakes and what was inside. The first thing that I got there was a chocolate frozen custard that's a lot like soft serve. It was a lovely flavor that wasn't overpowering. Chris got the boston cream pie cupcake that he really enjoyed. Unfortunately, the second time I went, I was rather put off by the owner.

She started telling us about how she used to live in Los Angeles and she's fed Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson and she's worked on movie sets, which totally put me off. I don't care who's had her cupcakes before especially two famous people that have questionable mental capacities. I don't know if it was because she tried to hype herself up by associating with famous people or that she was trying to say that she was running a trendy place to come, but I just didn't like it at all. I may enjoy buying designer things once in a while, but I don't want to be a trend whore. In any case, it made me want to leave that place right away.

But we'd brought our friend and we'd told her the desserts were fantastic, so we stayed. We got a high hat and a strawberry cupcake, neither of which was very good. The strawberry one was so sweet that I could feel the onset of diabetes. Chris called them little prisons for awful tastes.

We also tried the key lime pie cupcake (not so good) and cookies and cream (was good). They have free internet, which is really appealing to me. I could probably sit there for a while doing some work. And since the pastry chef didn't try to wow me with all the name dropping, I'm willing to overlook it from the owner. It remains to be seen if any more of her cupcakes are any good, but I'm willing to try a few more of them. Their frozen custard is still good either way.
