Woo Hoo!! Wednesday

Short Woo Hoo!! Wednesday post today. I'm battling my first fall cold and it's making me sleepy. Actually, it's making me want to sit on the couch under my Halloween blanket and watch a movie. 

I just got back from a quick trip to VEGAS, Woo Hoo!! Had a lot of fun. Of course  I had to track down a cupcake shop while I was there :)  

Gigi's  is located just off the strip.  We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and they were wiped out! I got the last Boston Cream, mmmm.



These Peppermint Patty cupcakes look delicious too. I'm getting a sugar high just looking at them!


My breakfast Monday morning as we waited for our flight. My Boston Cream.   I was too stuffed from dinner on Sunday to eat it. Yes, I know. How could one be too stuffed for a cupcake!  The cake was really moist but I wished there was more cream.  I love when you bite into a Boston Cream and the filling just oozes all over. No oozing with this cupcake :( Perhaps I need to try making my own Boston Cream cupcake.

  1. I don't think I'd be able to resist the Peppermint Patty or the one next to it (Chocolate salted caramel?). But Boston Cream ANYTHING, including cupcakes, is a totally acceptable breakfast. I also like Mad Hatter Cupcakes (at least a few miles off the strip) where you can build your own cupcakes and Sweet Surrender in Palazzo.

    And now I want to go back to Vegas. It's been 2 years now... ;)

    1. I was tempted by the peppermint patty for sure. I love caramel but am not a fan of the salted caramel. Salt isn't my thing. But sugar sure is :)

  2. Love Gigis! Last time I was there I had 6 minis. I HAD to - hubby was taking pictures and I HAD to keep eating them. :) Boston Cream looks super yummy!

    1. I would have bought the minis if they had them. When we went they were sold out of almost everything! Popular place :)

  3. I'm dying to try Gigi's! Jenn, I wasn't a huge fan of Sweet Surrender, but I'm jealous you got to try Mad Hatter. I say another Vegas trip is in order! (Yes, just for cupcakes...) ;)
