Have you ever watched the show, DC Cupcakes, on TLC? I remember when it first aired in 2010. It was interesting to see how they build their big projects with a whole bunch of cupcakes. I must admit that it is a pretty clever idea, but I think it doesn’t look as good as a whole cake (such as in Cake Boss on TLC).
Continuing on to my trip to SoCal months and months ago… I had such a blast. It was my first road trip with just my dad and it was pretty fun. We didn’t have the greatest relationship when I was younger. But now that I’m older, and somewhat wiser, we can bond. Do things together. Eat. Talk. And just… bond. You know… that kind of deal.
My last bakery visit in LA. I had no idea that there was a Magnolia’s in LA until my dessert lunch at Joan’s on Third. We were walking back to our hotel when we spotted this teal and white shop that looked so appealing to me. I didn’t notice until we were walking closer to it that it was a Magnolia’s! I was so excited because I have heard so many good things about their baked goods.
Don’t just think that I’m done with all the special goodies that I had in LA two weekends ago. I still have a couple more to share with you.
I was so lucky that Joan’s on Third just happened to be walking distance from our hotel. We ate here for lunch both Saturday and Sunday. I must admit that we didn’t really have a lunch on Saturday… it was more like a dessert. Dessert before dinner? Guilty!
This past weekend, I went on a spontaneous trip to Beverly Hills, CA. I was so excited to go because of the wonderful food I get to try. I’ve heard about so many great bakeries that I just had to try them, which means many food reviews to come.
