Crave Cupcakes?

If your answer is yes, have I got a treat for you!  Last week, Mama had the pleasure of sampling this amazing cupcake bite from a local bakery, Crave.  It was a moist cake covered in chocolate shaped like a cupcake.  Sound amazing? It gets better … the baker, Jenn, also makes rainbow squares and truffles!!!  Available in many flavors and assortments, these sweet treats are sure to be a hit for any occasion.   These made to order delights  are so good that I would recommend getting yourself a box too!

Check out her Facebook page for all the available flavors.  Valentine’s Day orders must be in by Feb 8th, 2011.
