Ode to Swirl Cupcakes

Yesterday afternoon we went to Lake Erie to take some pictures for a Flat Stanley Project for Running Diva Mom's Little Diva! Once we finished the photo shoot we headed to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. We passed on the Cheesecake as we had decided we wanted Swirl Cupcakes! I let Kaelynn pick the four flavors for us to try. She chose Red Velvet, Chocolate Whipped, Chocolate Fudge, and White Wedding. Don't they look delish??

Kaelynn was overly excited to try the cupcakes and she was first to dig right in! Her expressions were hilarious!!

Here she is realizing how much she doesn't like the Red Velvet.

She is realizing in the picture that she really likes the Chocolate Fudge!

She was completely thrilled with the Chocolate Fudge and asked if she could eat the rest of it. With permission granted she was in her glory. However, she wasn't able to finish it all so it is hanging out in the refrigerator for later!
Of course Kaelynn told me it was only fair that I have my picture taken while trying the cupcakes. White wedding was my favorite hands down! I wasn't able to finish my cupcake either so it went to the refrigerator with Kaelynn's for consumption at a later time!

Of course we couldn't leave out Grant. Unfortunately Grant is allergic to eggs so he was only able to try the frosting and he enjoyed all of the flavors!

Just look at the pure joy in his eyes!
Finally, we let daddy try the cupcakes. His favorite was Red Velvet. Funny thing is neither Kaelynn nor I liked Red Velvet at all!

So I am guessing you are wondering how this relates to running?! Well, after my 6 mile pace run this morning I refueled with the rest of the delicious White Wedding Cupcake and some peanut butter toast!
I have run 884 miles so far this year. I wonder how many cupcakes I have burned?!?!
Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!


  1. Wow, Cheesecake Factory has cupcakes??? They look delicious.

  2. Cheesecake Factory doesn't have cupcakes. There is a cupcake store called Swirl right by our Cheesecake Factory and they were DELISH!!!

  3. Mmmm, cupcakes and peanut butter toast ... perfection!
