Sweet Tooth

After my crummy day yesterday, I knew that I need some major distractions this weekend. My sister came over today and we had originally planned on going to On The Waterfront. It's cold here today! As in, there is no way that I'm gonna go hang out outside with scads of people. So, we needed to come up with something else to do. She didn't want to go shopping because I offered to go to Woodfield.

I sat thinking and I knew I was craving something. All of a sudden, it hit me! I wanted a cupcake. I wanted to go to a cute little bakery and pick out a cupcake and sit at a cute little table and eat my cupcake. The problem is that we don't have a cupcake bakery here. Sure, we have bakeries, but not CUPCAKE bakeries.

Enter Google! I found one in Naperville, which ended up to only be about an hour and 10 minutes away. Yes, Rachel and I drove a little over an hour for a cupcake. But they were delicious!!!!

Sugar Monkey Cupcakes is a darling little bakery in downtown Naperville. I'm smitten with it! They have daily flavors that they make and then there are flavors that are made specific to the day. They make a certain amount everyday and when they sell out, they're gone. When we got there today, there was only Red Velvet (first picture) and Maple Bacon (second picture) left. And let me tell you, both were F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!!!!
I can't wait to go back and try more flavors!
