Civic Center Farmer's Market, I Think I Love You
I went to the Civic Center Farmer's Market today. While I am now doing the hardest job I've ever had (raising Diner #3), it has the side benefit of being able to take a walk on a sunny day to SF's finest neighborhood for the Civic Center Farmer's Market.
A friend told me about "A Little Piece of Cake." Well, fuck me, why the hell isn't everybody talking about these folks?
I am a sucker for red velvet cake. Despite my love of baking, I've never made one (I don't know why, it's really just stupid at this point). So when I see the velvety redness anywhere, I'll give it a shot. ALPoC has red velvet cupcakes, 2 to a box, for $5. So I bought some.
These tiny cakes are so delicious that I had to physically restrain myself from eating both in one sitting. May I remind you that I have not been pregnant for, oh, a good 7.75 months now, so this really shouldn't be that hard. Emphasis on shouldn't. I'm very much considering locking the other one in a cabinet and making Jon hold on to the key until tomorrow (an acceptable time lapse from cupcake #1).
These cakes of the cup make Kara's look like dog food on cowpies. And I like Kara's. ALPoC's cake itself is moist and fluffy and totally yummers and the icing is a perfectly spread, 1/4" thick layer of cream cheese goodness (one of my peeves about Kara's is the 14 lbs. of frosting on those bitches -- it's like a cupcake with a side of diabetes).
Find a way to get the fuck over to cracktown so's you can get some of this action. I'm thinking I'll just start camping out there on Wednesdays.
