Sweet Patti Cakes

As I sit impatiently in infuriating traffic going home from school, I think about the magical box of cupcake waiting for me on the table to ease my grumbling stomach. Well, it should not only feed to my starvation but also satisfy my sweet tooth.

With a wonderful burst of color I salivate before choosing on what cupcake to eat. I decide to try those that are fruit-flavored first.

I’m back with a vengeance for food. Yes, from now on this barely-touched blog will also  cover my food ventures and experiences- the good, the bad, and everything in between.

As a sweet tooth, ice cream is my first love. Who doesn’t love ice cream? As I did my usual food research online, I came across this local homemade ice cream brand, Pinkerton. I found it interesting that they sell ice cream online- commonly, people sell cupcakes, brownies, macarons, etc. At this point I knew I had to try it.  What really got me was their out of the ordinary flavors! It triggered my curiosity.

The first one I wanted to try was the Red Velvet just because I love the red velvet flavor.
With my two loves combined (ice cream and red velvet) it was like a (red velvet) dream. If this were part of the tasting quiz in Hell’s Kitchen I’d definitely answer right away and with a smile. It’s rich, creamy, chunky, and the sweetness was just right. Something I could eat all day while watching Community. Although as a lover of red velvet (the flavor) I demand more chunks!

The next flavor that caught my attention was the Candied Maple Bacon. 
Bacon in ice cream? Interesting. Personally, it’s not something I’d eat if I were craving for something sweet. Though it sure will satisfy my sweet tooth in the morning if I replace my bacon with this to pair with my waffle. It’s something I’d want to start my day with.  

The name “Honey Rosemary” was not able to excite me. But my first spoonful did hence it became my favorite! My family’s favorite too.
