Thank you to everyone that posted such positive, supportive comments yesterday for my Mom and Dad. It’s great to have such an awesome community at the blog.
We had a fabulous tour of the Nike facility (I want to work there when I “grow up”). Much thanks goes to customer Kate Dixon from Portland for arranging it and shepherding us around the sprawling campus. I am inspired after seeing their amenities for staff. Serving lunch and providing a workout facility for our Bramble Berry staff would be a dream!
Then, we went in search of the best cupcake in Portland. We visited the Alphabet District’s Saint Cupcake. Sadly, they were out of Red Velvet cupcakes when we made it in so we had to make do with three minis and one Vanilla on Vanilla large dose.
Here is an employee making cupcakes for tomorrow’s hoard of rabid cupcake fans. She was using an ice cream scoop (? or something that looked like one) to get the cupcake batter into the wrappers.
After eating all three mini cupcakes tonight (the diet starts Monday), my experienced cupcake-tasting-buds declare that while Saint Cupcake isn’t as good as the Red Velvet cupcake at Cupcake Royale, these are better than the Trophy Cupcake from last week.
Tomorrow is Cupcake Jones. With the filling in every cupcake, it’s going to be an experience not to be missed.
PS – If you’re a soaper in the Portland area Saturday, stop by Besaw’s at noon to hang out, talk soap and have some good eats; more information here.
