Why not brighten your day with a cupcake?

Not just because it's Monday, but because every once and a while you need to treat yourself. I'm a firm believer that it's important to remind yourself that you are special and deserve a naughty indulgence, you've worked hard so why not? Right?

Maybe your indulgence is going to the movies, getting a ultimately relaxing full body massage, or a glass of expensive vino and cheese. Whatever it is, I bet it makes you feel like you're on cloud nine, or ten or whatever. Well, my most recent indulgence was a disgustingly delicious cupcake from none other than BTS Cafe - Better than Sex. Yep, this stunningly gorgeous cupcake shop (pictures of the store itself to come) is so sure of itself that it claims to smash sex out of the water terms of the 'inducing enjoyment' factor. Quite a claim, eh? Well, they do not disappoint, that's for sure.

A lovely friend of mine, Jenny, agreed that it was time for a yarn so of course I sent her a simple but effective message: 'J - Babes, BTS, lunch break now x'

Pictured below are the glorious cupcakes we purchased on arrival.

Meet Carrie:
Named after our beloved Carrie Bradshaw, the Carrie cupcake is a delicious mix of butter-cake with a lemon curd centre and meringue atop. It's sophistication with a bit of zing - just like our favourite NYC sex columnist.

Meet Elvis:
This banana choc chip cupcake with crispy chocolate bottom and creamy vanilla frosting atop leaves a taste in your mouth that makes you want to belt out a tune like our old mate Elvis. Jenny says "it's a party in your mouth like no other."

Are you impressed, feeling hungry or drooling? Did I ask if you are impressed? Well, if their cute celebrityesque names haven't won you over then I don't know what will.

One day I'll be awesome enough to have a cupcake especially designed and named after me. Hmm I wonder what it would taste like...

Do you know of any amazing cupcake stores?
Favourite flavour?
What's your indulgence?
