Kicking off the long weekend right…

May 28, 2010

Hello Beautiful!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! In honor of the long weekend ahead, I stopped in to this wonderful little place to pick up some Friday treats. Perhaps it was providence that I parked nearby?

Swirlz Cupcakes is a wonderful little cupcake shop in my neighborhood that always seems to tempt me to take a peek. Unfortunately, they are usually closed by the time I get home during the week. Due to an early Friday/Holiday Weekend departure from the office, I was able to sneak in and snag a few to take home.

I ❤ Cupcakes

Above is the Banana/Nutella cupcake that will be gone very soon. I also chose a Red Velvet, but it is a little shaken up from the walk home and isn’t feeling picture perfect.

I hope that everyone gets a chance to relax and enjoy the weekend. I will be spending most of my time outside, hopefully at the harbor and other various locales around the city.

    That looks and sounds sooooo good!! Swirls was one of my fave places when I did my Chicago cupcake crawl a couple years ago and I’ve been dying to go back!

    I love it too! Their icing takes the cake, light & fluffy. They had a wonderful looking new “Chocolate Covered Strawberry” flavor that may warrant a trip back 🙂
