I'm so excited and I have no idea how to contain my energy! If you have ever read this blog, follow us on social media or simply have spent 5 seconds with me you know how much I love cupcakes. After Crumbs closed its doors I felt an emptiness inside that I assumed would always exist (plus I have $35 dollars left on a Crumbs gift card that I can no longer use). But I found a glimmer of hope in what I thought would be a rough, cupcake-less season. A new cupcake store has opened less than a mile from my house! Holy crap, cupcakes within jogging distance...I could do cartwheels!
Cupcake lovers, meet Chocolate Savvy in Simi Valley, CA!
And I had to highlight the best part of my experience at Chocolate Savvy...the cupcakes! I had already eaten dinner and my wife would not allow me to get crazy, but I had my son in tow and he needed a cupcake too. So, I was able to purchase two cupcakes! We tried the Vanilla Fudge, vanilla cake with a rich, thick fudge in the center and vanilla buttercream icing (pictured above, on the right) and the Halloween Spice Cupcake, delicious spice cake, vanilla cream in the center, vanilla buttercream on top and lots and lots of Halloween sprinkles and adorned with a yummy pumpkin candy (pictured lower left side). I also had the shop sneak in a peanut butter cookie dipped in milk chocolate. SO. FREAKIN. GOOD. Everything was amazing and I can not wait to go back again....go thing they are so close!
