Happy Cakes


Short version: Do whatever you must to obtain a Happy Cakes Carrot Cupcake.

Long version: I turned off AIA onto SeaGrove Drive on a whim.  I was sandy and salty and satisfied.  (Dinner at Burrito Works + St. Augustine Beach + sunset playtime with the fam = happiness!)  The windows in SeaGrove Town Center were mostly dark or empty.  We were about to turn around when a pink beacon of happiness {this is too good to make up!} broke through the darkness.  I had discovered Happy Cakes.

Before you even walk through the door, you know this is a happy place to be.  Playful pink & black decor, toys to occupy little ones while Mamma decides which of the dozen or so treats to choose from, and stylized zebra print high chairs- this is not the Publix bakery.

A friendly cupcake-ista {what would you call her?} pointed out her favorites and helped fill my box with tasty treats.  Mocha cupcakes, banana puddin’ cupcakes, carrot cake cupcakes & boston cream pie cupcakes all made the short list along with one Oreo push-pop cake for baby Clara.  (It’s 2 mini cupcakes & icing encased in a plastic push-pop tube to keep little hands clean{er}.  Brilliant!)

I loved the dense cake (yay for homemade!) and enjoyed trying the filled cupcakes (banana puddin’ especially).  I’ll try a latte with mine next time, I think that counterpoint to the super-sweet icing would be heavenly.  Really, though, there is absolutely no contest- the Carrot Cake Cupcake is crowned queen in my book!  And it’s healthy, you know… made from vegetables… I think I’ll have another.
