I love going on road trips while the kids are in school. This means going to places no more than two to three hours away from Nashville. One of the places that our business, Blues Vintage Guitars, took us is Elizabethtown, KY. This small town is full of charm, history and great cupcakes.

I’m always looking for the local bakery to try new confections. That’s when we ran into Sugar Fashion Cakes located in its beautiful historic district.

I ordered the strawberry cupcake filled with Bavarian cream and topped with buttercream and glitter. I just couldn’t resist the glitter šŸ˜Š. My husband ordered the sunday cupcake for the kids. It was chocolate cake with sprinkles chocolate ganache, buttercream and a cherry on top.

I had every intention of driving back to Nashville and eat my strawberry cupcake at home. Of course that didn’t happen. Fifteen minutes into our drive back, I broke into the cupcake box, took a couple of pictures and went into a sweetness comma.

The strawberry cupcake was moist, delicious and huge (did I mention it was a jumbo cupcake?). Having this cupcake was like having lunch. But you know what? I didn’t feel guilty at all. I will welcome this type of lunch any day.

Our kids had the sunday cupcake. There have been very few times so far where my kids are not making any noise and are actually eating. This was one of them. I haven’t heard my daughter say ‘thank you’ so many times in a row.

Sugar Fashion Cakes have amazing cupcakes so if you’re visiting Elizabethtown, stop by the historic district and grab a cupcake or two. šŸ™‚

Yum!

Every cupcake I bake has a story. My husband and I own Blues Vintage Guitars here in Nashville, TN. He’s always on the phone buying and selling vintage guitars, and being that we live in Nashville he’s always dealing with a lot of people in the music business. Yesterday, I overheard him on the phone talking to the crew over at Glaser Instruments, which he uses to repair or setup all his guitars. He was asking them about their lunch schedule because he wanted to buy them lunch in appreciation for everything they do for him. Well, being that they all tend to eat at different times. I offered to bake cupcakes for them instead. Genius!Ā  Continue reading
