Sweet Indulgences Sunday #44

Good Morning! Some of you may have noticed that I didn't host a linky party last weekend. My family and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend in Columbia, South Carolina. We visited the Riverbanks Zoo and several area restaurants. Our hotel had an indoor pool which my husband and the kids enjoyed while I sat in the room watching a cheesy romantic comedy and munching on day-old Krispy Kreme doughnuts. It was HEAVEN!

I got to visit my first gourmet cupcake shop in downtown Columbia, aptly named "Cupcake". I bought two vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting and a chocolate cupcake with salted caramel frosting. Let me tell you that they were rich. I couldn't eat a whole one at a time. I spread out the eating over two days and finally figured a fork and knife were the best weapons for attacking these cupcakes. They were delicious and formidable opponents. I eventually won the battle though!

Here are those most inspiring recipes from the last linky party:

from The Sweet Spot

from Indulge

from The Sweet Swiper

Thanks to everyone who linked up last week! There were so many wonderful recipes!
