Peonies And Cupcakes

Our 13th wedding anniversary came and went without us really doing some kind of celebration – just yet. Not even a dinner. But I’m not complaining. I’m more than grateful that the day came and we were together that day.

A couple of weeks before our anniversary, my husband tried to get clues from me for possible anniv gift. His ‘fishing expedition’ however failed, so desperate as he was, he asked me pointblank what I want in the form of gift. I replied: “nothing, I already got the best gift”. I just made a request though. Call me shallow but I wanted a few pieces of Georgetown cupcakes.

I got more than just the cupcakes. My husband came home with a vase of peonies, etc. which he got from a nearby flower shop. I have to say, they smelled really good, unlike most roses that only look good and does not smell at all.

And, I got my wish – Georgetown cupcakes. The DC cupcake store in Soho opened in the winter of last year but we never had the chance to personally go.

The cupcakes however didn’t look good. Although the packaging was good, I suspect that the heat and humidity did a ‘number’ on the icing. Plus, my husband had to carry the flowers too. They tasted great and I think Georgetown cupcakes can give Sprinkles a stiff competition. Crumbs is now really out of the equation… for us. I can’t wait to get my hands on another batch of Georgetown cupcakes hopefully, they’ll be intact, no icing falling off.

    The icing didn’t go to waste anyway. Just imagine me scooping them out from the box with my fingers. Dugyot di ba? Hahaha. A for effort talaga ang mamang manliligaw kasi ang bigst yung vase ng bulaklak. Sa kasamaang palad, lanta na sila ( lol).

    Thanks for stopping by Tita B. tapos na ba annual mo?

  3. Magandang umaga po! I like peonies kasi parang ang daming bulaklak kahit isang piraso lang….parang hydrangea ba. Bow naman ako sa mister at talagang pinagbigyan ang parang naglilihing misis [parang lang…hehe].

    How’s your weekend? Kami pa relak relak syempre.

    Enjoy the rest of it.

    Ang aga mo! Gumising ako today at 12:30 p.m. Correction pala, gising ako practically all night. Ewan ko ba mukhang ini-imagine ko hitsura nung matanda kasi. Malapit na ako mag-complaint kasi kada Sabado eh dun ang destinasyon samantalang yung magaling na kapatid ay isang beses pa lang nagpakita.

    Ang bango nga nung bigay ng mama hehe. Wish ko na lang yang paglilihi, at milagrong malaki yan pag nangyari hihi.

    Ang init dito parang sa inyo. Pero I didn’t go out hanggang veranda lang ako.

    Ang takot lang niya if the request is denied hahaha.

    I don’t think the cupcakerie is available beyond the US just yet. The 1st outlet opened in DC and they have been slowly spreading around US. Loves ko sila, just the right amount of sweetness on the icing and the cake.

    Thanks for your time and sending hugs back to you.

  6. Belated Happy 13th! Those cuppies look delish. Nevermind if the icing melted. :) We’re going 13th this yr too. Ako naman cake is always something I find sweet din during special occasion. Ewan ko ba kahit super hint na ko sa hubs ko, once lang yata pinagbigyan. Haha! :)

  7. I agree, it has something to do with the weather. Oh! How I wish I could taste that, it looks yummy (with or without icing)

  8. How lovely those flowers are! My hubby and me are not the “gifting” kind, not by choice but by financial constraints. Haha. We delight in just spending time together and making something special for dinner – like ordering two boxes of party size pizzas. :) (BTW, those cupcakes look delish, with or without icing on top!)
