Big FAT Cupcake

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

As stated on Sunday, my sister and I headed to Denver on Monday for Sister Day 2009. Being my last day here, we wanted to get in some girl bonding time, so what did we do?

Eat. And shop. It was a free flowing day of over-indulgence.

We wrapped up our day by visiting Big Fat Cupcake. And boy oh boy, did they live up to their name. These puppies were HUGE. We got there about 45 minutes before they closed and I, being the cupcake-obsessed aficionado I am, was afraid they would only have a few crusty leftovers, remnants of what previous customers dared not nibble.

I couldn't have been more wrong. No, in fact there was a plethora of giant, fluffy, freshly baked cupcakes... So many, in fact, that they were having a BOGO sale. And who am I to turn down free cupcakes??

So here it is...Big Fat Cupcake (the PERFECT name, I think. Short. Sweet. And accurately descriptive).

Buy one, get one. So we bought an Everything, got a Heath Bar, bought a Vanilla/Vanilla, got a Chocolate & Cream Cheese.

This little piggy was covered in Oreos, Heath Bar, M & Ms, and pretzels...

This little piggy was covered in Heath bar...

And this little piggy went WEE WEE WEE...all the way down to my intestines.

These cupcakes were so big, I split one with my sister (and this blogger doesn't share cupcakes). Here I am making sure it's evenly divided. Cupcakes are serious business.

I'm convinced there's no flattering way to capture a photo of someone eating... Especially when you're eating something the size of a softball.

This place even has a Cupcake of the Month Club. My thighs are lucky I don't live in Denver...

Our over-indulgence didn't end with cupcakes... We also over-indulged on Chick-Fil-A and Dairy Queen Blizzards (yes, you read that correctly... Girl Scout Blizzard followed by Big Fat Cupcake...) We also managed to squeeze Forever 21, Gap, and the J.Crew, Banana Republic, and Polo outlets between all of that food. Did I mention I found $12 skirts at J.Crew? Twelve. Dollars. I bought three... (I NEVER find good deals there, even at the outlet.)

Anyway... Stay tuned! I'm already scouting out cupcake joints in Chicago for our trip next week. So, there are more pictures to come of me eating cupcakes...( and wearing J.Crew skirts).
