One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Organic Cupcakes from Cups of La Jolla

This rainy Sunday in San Diego, we wanted something sweet to go along with our hot coffee. What better snack to go along with our coffee? You guessed it, cupcakes. This time we ended up getting these delicious cupcakes from Cups in a beautiful community in San Diego called La Jolla...

For some reason cupcakes have been the IT thing for me right now. It might be the fact that they're bite size, portable and don't really need any utensils to eat them. And incase you haven't noticed, we also bought these cupcakes to-go instead of eating inside the store...

Here's some content taken off Cups website for some added info...

"Cups is an organic cupcakery and lounge with a mouth-watering assortment of cupcakes and hot and cold drinks on Girard Avenue in the Village of La Jolla, California.

Everything we serve is made in-house with the highest quality, local, sustainable, organic ingredients – from our Cups, to our already-famous strawberry milk “on tap” and house-made chai tea blend."

We bought a dozen of the smaller cupcakes in four different flavors. They had the regular size cupcakes, but since it was our first time and just wanted to sample them, it was best to just get the smaller ones, called Minis, for now. Besides, their cupcakes were priced on the higher side compared to other establishments in the County.

The flavors we got are the Red Velvet. The Peanut Butter Cup that has dairy-free chocolate cup with creamy peanut buttercream. The Death by Chocolate that's truffle filled chocolate cup and topped with rich dark chocolate frosting. And the Chocolate Milk that's vanilla cup, topped with light and creamy chocolate buttercream frosting. I'm telling you, all pretty darn good.

I liked the Red Velvet and the PB Cup cupcakes. So yummy and moist! These cupcakes were really bite size. At first I tried to take a bite out of it, but that didn't work out too well. But since I'm a dude, I basically just popped one in my mouth. It's really that small. At least for the Red Velvet and Chocolate Milk was. They're full of flavor in one whole bite. Just the way I like it...

All in all, I would go back there again if I'm in the area, but wouldn't go out of my way to get some cupcakes. They're also a bit more expensive than other places, but they do have deals ever now and then, which is nice. And they do look like a much more hipper and cool place to hangout and relax.
