I Found Heaven Back In The Day


I was working in the Savannah office today and a coworker, Libby (the most fun you could ever have balled up into one person), took me to lunch at a place called Back in the Day Bakery on Bull Street.

Let me tell you…they had the best cupcakes I have ever had. I mean their cupcakes rival Sugar Sweet Sunshine’s in NYC, and that’s hard to do! Ellen DeGeneres, AOL and The New York Times all agree…Back in the Day Bakery has some of the best cupcakes you will ever scarf down.

I opted for the “Chocolate Heaven,” being the chocoholic that I am. Moist chocolate cake with creamy chocolate frosting and chocolate sprinkles pilled high. Trust me, it was heaven. If you’re not into chocolate they’ve got quite the variety of flavors, including: lemon coconut, double dipped chocolate ganache, red velvet and carrot cake to name a few.

Is your mouth watering yet?



Oh My Godiva!


Belgium-based chocolatiers, Godiva, sure do know how to make the suite life, sweet. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, chocolate-makers are kicking it into high gear, and Godiva is no exception.

They’ve created a Valentine’s Day promotion that’s grand prize is a weekend’s stay in a Bryant Park Hotel suite. Not just any suite, mind you. The Godiva suite is made entirely of chocolate. Bon bons, truffles, white chocolate, dark chocolate, chocolate candle sticks and chocolate covered couches, you name it, it’s in that room.

Godiva is taking their cue from Willy Wonka and his notorious golden tickets, and have stuffed one Godiva chocolates box (priced $23 or higher and sold only in North America) with a letter congratulating the winner with a pampered weekend for two in the chocolate suite.

A preview of the suite was created at Divine Studios in New York City. The actual suite will be recreated at the Bryant Park Hotel sometime in May.
