Cupcake’s Make You Happy!

I just returned from spending the last week in Utah.  I went to spend some time with my mother after her most recent stroke.  I stayed with Alex and Stacey in Provo, so I made a daily “Trip to Bountiful.”  Last Wednesday, I was feeling particularly sad, it’s hard watching my my mom suffer.  I decided that cupcakes might lift my spirits.  Of course I know that it is called emotional eating!  I made two quick stops in Salt Lake on my way to Bountiful.  The first stop was at  So Cupcake at 3939 Highland Drive.  I purchased three cupcakes, Cinnamon Sugar, Chocolate and Key Lime.

The next stop was at Mini’s at 14 East 8th South where I purchased six mini cupcakes.  (Mini’s only makes mini cupcakes-hence the name of the store).  Mini’s motto is “Cupcakes Make You Happy.”  I tend to agree.  Just being in Mini’s made me feel happy and it had nothing to do with wanting to consume large quantities of cupcakes.  It was fun just looking at the tiny cakes and taking in the fun decor of the shop.  I selected Tainted Love, S’more, Chocoholic, Snowball, Diva and Pretty in Pink.

My personal favorites ended up being So Cupcake’s Key Lime and Mini’s Chocoholic.  So if you are ever in Salt Lake City stop by one of these great shops and see if cupcakes make you happy.  Well,  I am off to make my own famous lemon cupcakes for my eight year old friend, Maurielle’s baptism.

  1. let’s make some cupcakes when you are here– how about some boston creme pie ones for rick’s birthday instead of a cake

  2. Just looking at these cupcakes makes me happy, too! I am trying to stick to my sweets once a week, but I think we could splurge on cupcakes one of the days that I am in Utah! I can’t wait to see you! Love ya, let me know how your hair turns out!

  3. Cupcakes are very popular here – we use FHE as an excuse for making them. Your beautiful photos are pure inspiration. Needless to say, Ivy loves FHE. She even told the lady in the bookshop about it today. What a missionary.

    Sorry to hear about your Mum.

  4. Thanks for the tips. I haven’t been to either of those places. Seems like Emily and I need to take a cupcake field trip this week. I think the smores one looks especially yummy!
