slow down and taste the sweet life
i just spent the weekend in savannah, ga. i had travelled down south for my aunt's bridal shower and completely fell in the love with the historic city. of course everything about the trip was wonderful, but i'll save the details for another post. i'd like to dedicate this post to cupcakes.
of course :)
i have read about this bakery before and heard about it from paula deen. my aunt has been craving these cupcakes since the preganancy so we were able to make a trip there for a cupcake breakfast. back in the day bakery is a nonchalant bakery that sits on the corner of bull street and 40th just after you past forsyth park.
the cupcakes were moist and the buttercream was sweet and buttery-just the way it should be. the coffee was basic and delicious. i've decided that the south has better coffee because every where i went the coffee was perfect.
everyone was digging into the old fashioned cupcake; however, i'm a sucker for anything lemon and decided to taste the lemon coconut. while the lemon was nice and mild in the cupcake the old fashion won me over with it's sweet sprinkles and little flower decoration.
i encourage you to stop by the corner bakery whenever you find yourself in savannah, ga.
