Hey there cupcake!

Seriously, after a long weekend of wine and treats, it's time to head back to the gym to see how much damage control I can muster. But even as I sweat and groan, my mind will be on my favorite delicacies, most specifically - CUPCAKES.

Is there anything more perfect than a cupcake? Not only is it a delicious treat, it's a miniature work of art. And what gelato did in the 80's, cupcakes are doing in the new millenium. Every day it seems that more and more cupcake cafes are popping up, making this guilty little pleasure, once only able to be savored at children's birthday parties, a mainstream delight.

Here are a few calorie free ways to satisfy your sweet tooth from our fellow Etsy vendors:

and this little delight, which nearly made me snort coffee through my nose:

If you live in the SF Bay area, there is a lovely little cupcakery in San Carlos that you must visit! Vanilla Moon Bakery at 872 Laurel Street, offers beautifully crafted cupcakes, whether you're looking for something special for a wedding or party, or just walking in off the street.
Enjoy your cupcakes - I'm off to the gym...
