Must Eat: Mini Doughnut Cupcakes by Crave

I think I've made it clear I've got a thing for doughy, sugary goodies and mini doughnuts are no exception. You know the warm, cinnamon sugar covered kind you can find at fairs and festivals? I just cannot say no. So when I heard Crave Cupcakes made a mini doughnut cupcake I just had to try.

It was every bit as good as I imagined and tasted well, just like a mini doughnut which is exactly what I was hoping for. Light, fluffy inside and the perfect dusting of cinnamon sugar to top it all off. YU-UM.

I can thank my fav foodie friend, Dajana for introducing me to Crave Cupcakes. As a former Calgarian she raved about their sweets, so when they finally made their way to Edmonton I knew we were in for a treat. Their cupcakes are light and not too sweet or heavy like some others I've had. I couldn't think of a better person to meet me at the bakery for some sweet indulgence, thanks D!

Loving my new found "table" ;)

And here's what kind of shenanigans you get into when you mix a self-timer accidentally set to 10 frames and two ladies on a sugar high:

The current cupcake of the month is the s'more cupcake, I'm drooling just thinking about it. How many more delicious things can they pack into a cupcake? Seriously. I've yet to try one but luckily, the lovely Dajana has so wipe up that drool and hop on over to her blog, all kinds of lovely, for more virtual goodies. Thanks, D for the good times and thanks Crave for the good eats!

Happy Weekend!
