As I read through the menu I began to notice a trend. Most of Jilly's cupcakes are filled with delicious, ooey-gooey goodness. I've included a few descriptions from their menu. How about this:
"Red velvet cake infused with chocolate syrup and stuffed with caramel praline filling, topped with cream cheese icing, cinnamon caramel buttercream, toasted pecans and a pecan praline"
"Madagascar vanilla cake infused with lemon and honey syrup, stuffed with a honey lemon curd and topped with lemon cream cheese, toasted almonds, lemon candy dust, a sugar bee and a white chocolate and lemon honeycomb bark"
That reads like the stuff of special occasions, doesn't it? Well, today was special enough. After all, it isn't every day that we pick Matthew up from the airport. On the way home, we dropped in for a cupcake.
The cupcakes at Jilly's are huge. The girls split one (filled with strawberry cheesecake topped with strawberry buttercream and white chocolate shavings), and half was more than enough. In the pictures you can see that the girls are eating with a kind of modified chop-stick that we brought with us. It worked better than you might imagine. I had to share my pictures of their attempt.
We got four more cupcakes to go. We'll share them with my parents when we go over for dinner tonight. I can't wait to hear what they have to say about these!
As for me, I'm a fan. You can bet I'll be happy to go back for more.
