Whipt Cream...

...last Wednesday, Aimee and I were in Chesterfield. I was supposed to be dropping off fliers for Hospital Hill Run at Fleet Feet (they weren't open yet) and Ghisallo (apparently they'd closed). We were about to head back to St. Charles when we saw Whipt Cream. Aimee had been to a wedding who had these cupcakes. They weren't quite open yet so we sat in the car chatting for a few minutes waiting for them to open.
I wanted to get a picture of the storefront. This was the first attempt. It was raining, can you tell?
Attempt #2, turned off the flash. Now you can see the storefront...kinda.
Look at that spread!!! I wanted to try them all. I had the second from the end on the right. Any guesses what flavor I got? Yep, you guessed it PB!!! Apparently the PB was in the PB Banana spot and vice versa so there was all sorts of confusion for a second. I don't know who was more confused, Aimee and I or the lady that worked there.
They had all sorts of other cute displays. Totally reminded me of all the cake shows on TV. I definitely looked like a tourist snapping all these pics.
When I got home, Matt was off work early because of the rain. I was busted and had to share with him. He's a good hubby though and let me enjoy both of them. The cupcake was good, moist but not PB enough for me. I've had a PB cupcake before with a Reese's cup inside-oh, be still my heart! I would definitely go back if I was in the area but I don't think I'd make a special trip to go there.

I'm thinking I should take a tour of STL and try every PB cupcake I can find. Who wants to join me???

PS
Rabbit, rabbit!

A cupcake tour would be fun :)

BTW did you hear that Cape is getting the new casino? Eventually I'm going to have to go back down there when there's not a football game just to really explore again.

Oh, cupcakes! My loves! We don't really have any cupcake stores around here, so we need to get on that quick!

That place looks awesome! We have a "Couture" cupcake place and I think it looks ghetto! and I can see some of the cupcake on the sides because they don't put enough icing on it. If I am going to pay $3 a cupcake I better have it loaded with frosting! Okay off my soap box! We are going to have to find you a Penut Butter Annonymous I think. :)

I am thinking your PB cupcake tour could then be replicated in other cities--great idea.
