as if that's news. heh.
yesterday at work, while finishing up the prep work for the day's supply of goodies (we typically have about fifteen different [rotating] flavors available on a daily basis), the boss asked me what it was that i brought every morning in my starbucks cup.
of course, it's my grande iced nonfat upside-down caramel macchiato.
she laughed at my enormous sweet tooth - she always chuckles when i leave for the day with at least one cupcake in hand. you'd think i'd be sick of 'em by now, having worked there for over a month now. but nope - i just can't get enough of that delicious, moist (that word is okay ONLY when used to describe luscious dessert) chocolate cake.
anyway, with one batch of chocolate cupcakes still to frost, she decided to experiment and create a new flavor based on my drink of choice. she poked holes in the tops of the cupcakes and filled them with sweetened whipped cream, frosted the top with coffee-flavored whipped cream, gave it a swirl of caramel and sprinkled chocolate bits on top. voila!
i was the lucky taste-tester (the fact that i'm not yet sick of cupcakes probably had something to do with it), and although the coffee flavor was really subtle, the whole combo was really, really good.
and i sold the shit outta those things. with no sign on the board that described it, customer after customer inquired about the scrumptious-looking mystery flavor. i rattled off a full description of the tasty treat, and they ate that shit up. literally.
i sure hope she makes them again. mmmm.
oh, before i forget - so, i've come across all sorts of great baby stuff that's either brand new or maybe used once or twice. there's a set of babylegs, a beco butterfly carrier, a cute little plastic battery-operated chandelier. i'm kind of debating doing a "blog sale," kind of like the ones done by a fellow blogger who a bunch of us all know and love. heh.
anyway, is that a super duper lame idea? i could put it all out at a yard sale, but i just think some of you might appreciate these items more than some randoms shopping for shit that costs them $.25 or something.
gimme a "yay" or a "nay" in a comment, wouldja? and do you love how i base my decisions on responses from my internet friends?
