June 20th, 2014 Cheap Eats, Mary, Pacific Beach, San Diego County Mary Desjean 6 Comments

When my cousin was here visiting for a short weekend, she requested that we get cupcakes. I can accommodate that request! She went to LA winter and visited Sprinkles and well, I wasn’t going to take her to Sprinkles anyway when there are so many local shops to visit in San Diego. I decided on trying out Pure Cupcakes in Pacific Beach since I remember it was a highly rated cupcake from our Red Velvet Cupcake crawl (Faye, don’t cringe, …

the best red velvet cupcakes in san diego (redux)
February 5th, 2014 Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 12 Comments

About three years ago, Heather, Laura and I had a red velvet cupcake tasting where we sampled 8 different cupcakes between the three of us. Pretty impressive actually, though we probably each had like one or two bites per cupcake. Recently I found out that our winner from that tasting (Influx Cafe) no longer makes red velvet cupcakes and therefore my past post was no longer valid! Nooooo! I could not let that stand and quickly formulated a plan to …

I’m going to do the free birthday stuff over a few posts this time to break it all instead of hitting you with it all at once. Cool? Cool.
Today’s focus will be on the “fast food/take out” version of the freebies.

Rubio’s is one of the birthday meals that I have done consistently over the last few years. Not much has changed in the terms of what you get, which is a free meal worth …

Quick post! To share cupcakes.
My supervisor, David, had a birthday the same week that Jake and I celebrated our anniversary. So I just made extra cupcakes that week so I could make these sushi cupcakes for David’s birthday!

The bottom cupcake is the same as the Stormtrooper cupcakes – vanilla bean with vanilla frosting.

The “sushi” is made with mini cupcakes from the same batter. They are wrapped with a slice of grape fruit roll-up for the “seaweed”. The “rice” is shredded …
