Here's the picture of the cupcake I took at Barnes last night. Right before I gobbled it up.
And I heard a rumor that our Borders will reopen after they liquidate. No idea if that's true. Meanwhile, Barnes might not be our usual haunt, but if they keep selling cupcakes like these, I might be able to adjust.
Hope it tasted as good as it looked. Yummy:)ReplyDelete
Outside a little dry but the inside was nummy.ReplyDelete
Good thing I just ate my dinner--my first thought when I saw that cupcake was, "I want it!!" Hope you enjoyed:)ReplyDelete
Tables are a little scrunched. But workable.ReplyDelete
I think I would be willing to try out Barnes.;)ReplyDelete
I would choose cupcake, I mean Barnes!ReplyDelete
Wow that looks good! Was it just plain ol' chocolate? Or is there a hidden flavor somewhere in there?? Either way, now I'm hungry.ReplyDelete
I heart cupcakes. Why I like little cakes in individual cups more than large cakes makes no sense to me - but such is life.ReplyDelete
I go where there's food...ReplyDelete
*william reaches through the computer screen to snatch the cupcake.*ReplyDelete
Hi Holly: They have some neat stuff in their bakery case. Looking forward to trying some new things.ReplyDelete
Hey Kelly: Great to see you today.
Hi Angry Vegetarian: Plain ol' chocolate. Icing was good. Dry on the outsides but still tasty.
Hey Matt: Me too. I've never been a huge fan of cakes (unless it's carrot cake), but give me a little cup cake and I'm happy.
Alex: I think you're right.
William: Too late William. I've already gobbled it up. Num num num.
Hey :) Just checking in to see how you are. Haven't seen you around in a while. That cupcake looks delicious!ReplyDelete
Hey Kelsey: I'm full. Just ate. Life's good. Headed to check out your blog.ReplyDelete
damn, that looks good.ReplyDelete
I personally like the vanilla cupcake at B&N. I save my calories for NaNoWriMo write-ins. If you do the math, I get four cupcakes year. Yummy! Unless Novemeber has five Mondays.ReplyDelete
Of course, now I want one and its only March.
Hi mshatch: Not too shabby. And they have tons of interesting things in their bakery case. Though I'll miss Borders, I'm thankful that we have Wegman's cafe and Barnes.ReplyDelete
Hey Pat: I'll give the vanilla a try. Might even keep track of how many I gobble. I think I saw cheese cake too. Oh, man. It's gonna be hard getting used to Barnes but I think I'm up for the challenge.ReplyDelete
I am betting that you could make a better one, but that looks yummy!ReplyDelete
I think Matt's stumbled on a fundamental law.ReplyDelete
If we're talking big bookshops, the food and drink can really help in feeling at home. I'd be up for the challenge too..!
Mmmm, i like that, this is mine !!!ReplyDelete
Have a good weekend !!
Great, I haven't eaten breakfast yet and now I'm craving chocolate! :)ReplyDelete
Oooo, the swirls have got me drooling!ReplyDelete
I get that you two are Borders fans, but my first love is Barnes and Noble. Literally -- I met my wife there!ReplyDelete
I love bookstores and the actual, physical book. I hear eReaders are all the rage, but the cupcake/cafe/bookstore experience is where it's at.ReplyDelete
I seriously need to feed me some chocolate! That looks too yummy. :)ReplyDelete
Our Borders is staying open for now, but it needs to downsize and lose the non-book stuff that no one is interested in. I'm a big Borders fan.ReplyDelete
nice bacground to accompany the gorgeous cupcake!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the nice words Todd and thanks for noticing the background, Bartender. That was the table.ReplyDelete
Very cool that you met your wife there, Professor. The reason we lean toward Borders is the cafe size and coupons.
Donna, you are lucky that your Borders is staying open. So glad for you. Do you have a favorite drink?
Donea Lee, Jess and Susan. Hope you girls got some chocolate. Do you have a favorite cafe dessert?
I can't get into the e-Readers either, Christian. I just like books. That said, I'm interested in a digital graphics tablet for drawing.
Porky: I'm ready for the cafe challenge. And to Magda, I hope you have a great weekend as well.
Thanks guys for stopping by. Always great to see you.
Sorry, Todd. I meant to bold your name.ReplyDelete
Hello, chocolate, I love you :DReplyDelete
I hope your Borders does reopen. Ours is closing for good, which is sad.
Good lord that looks yummy! And I definitely hope your Borders opens back up, too.ReplyDelete
Me too. Meanwhile we still have Wegmans cafe and that's a nice space. Though not a fan of the TVS they added. Why have television is a cafe? Eight of them, I believe.ReplyDelete
Sorry yours is closing too, Julie.
I never knew their cupcakes looked that good. Not sure what I think of a book and a cupcake... never tried it... but now I kinda want to...ReplyDelete
