Cupkates and Bi-Rite Creamery

Since it’s not always so easy for us to go out, we luckily have friends and family who bring things to us!

We had a treat from Virginia of some cupcakes from Cupkates! Top left is the Banana with Nutella Frosting. Bottom left is Peanut Butter Frosting with Chocolate Cupcake. Bottom right is the Salted Caramel Frosting with Chocolate Cupcake.

Ron and I tried two of them for now. I enjoyed the banana cupcake itself but not so much the frosting. The cupcake was very moist and rich with banana flavor. It was the opposite with the PB and chocolate, the PB frosting was very delicious, like a very creamy peanut butter but the chocolate cupcake a bit too bitter although very moist. We still have the salted caramel one left. I’ve posted about Cupkates before, click here.

Ron’s brother Henry and his girlfriend Betty went to Bi-Rite Creamery and brought us a pint of ice cream. I requested malted vanilla with peanut brittle and milk chocolate. The ice cream is deliciously creamy and I loved the little bites of peanut brittle mixed in. Yum! I’ve posted about Bi-Rite before too, click here.

It’s been fun being able to eat cupcakes and ice cream again. In a few weeks, I will need to take another oral glucose tolerance test to make sure I no longer have glucose intolerance (diabetes). I think I should start cutting down on the carbohydrates again to make sure I don’t do more harm to my body but I don’t want to diet so that I can make sure to produce enough breast milk for Simon.
