it's the little things...

you know what i craved all weekend? well, i crave it all the time, but especially this weekend. red velvet cake. and as i've stressed a million times before, only with cream cheese icing. no buttercream crap. hate that stuff. i was taking a break from my work and i tried a new coffee place while i was out. and right beside the counter i see a little glass stand with some baked goods in it. and there was mini red velvet cupcakes in all their glory. i quickly asked the guy ringing me up what type of icing it was. sure enough, it was cream cheese. we shared a moment of our love for red velvet  as i added it to my order.

i waited until i got home to eat the mini concoction of love and that walk seemed to take forever. and let me just tell you, it was ah-mazing. as a self-proclaimed red velvet snob, i know good from bad. and there is a lot of bad out there. this has now been added to the short list of places that make a good quality red velvet in the city. (The Dessert Lady, Wanda's Pie in the Sky, and now Aroma Espresso Bar.)
oh, and to top it off, i've always wanted a latte with a little design in it, and this place does that too! it's a little messed up in the picture because i walked a bit with it before i stopped to take a picture. but that right there, that's a heart :)

see...it's the little things; like a heart in a latte and an unexpected [delicious] red velvet cupcake.

I love red velvet! I had a delicious huge slice of it yesterday, of course, with cream cheese frosting!

based on your blog review i tried to get a red velvet cupcake from wanda's on saturday - sadly they were all out so i had to settle for a date square (not the same!!!!)

i had no idea aroma did red velvet - i'll have to look for it - and i definitely want to check out the dessert lady!

I totally agree, the red velvet has gotta be cream cheese, NO buttercream. Damn you, now I'm craving one. Love the latte with the design in it.

You're right, it is the little things. Love this post! :)
