AAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh *Insert chorus of angels singing here.*
Holy Cow Cupcakes, 64 West City Centre Drive, is now located at the new and quite chic City Center of Carmel—a big improvement from the super small previous locale. With a kitchen as big as the store, teal walls, and cute notes written to cupcake loving strangers on a dry erase board, Holy Cow Cupcakes isn’t just a store for passer byes. It’s a destination—and not just for pregnant women like myself.
On my first visit to the new location, I went for my chocolate on chocolate—I enjoy sticking to the classics, although the introduction of banana bread and pumpkin bread options were tempting. Not as tempting as the Oreo Cuppy though. Definitely a recommended item! Oh, and my husband went ahead and ordered that pumpkin bread—which I had a bite of as well. He already had a Carrot Cake Cuppy, so he didn’t mind sharing. I’ve never been a fan of the whole “let’s put veggies in a cake” idea, but I must say, I was impressed. It’s probably good that my husband and I don’t live in the apartments near by—I may become a regular and test every single item.
Word on the street is Holy Cow Cupcake also has some labor inducers. Sick of being pregnant? Order the Lemon Cuppy. Owner Karen says it helped another customer get her baby moving. If my son wasn’t so stubborn, it may have worked on him, too. Trust me, I tried it. Any way you cut it, a cupcake is way more appealing than a funky salad or a cup of balsamic vinegar with a lemon wedge and peppermint stick. In case you are wondering, I am still pregnant—and if you do the math, I had quite a few cupcakes on this visit.
If you swing through Carmel, stop in to Holy Cow Cupcakes and say hello. Owner Karen will be there, and more than likely, I’ll be there, too. Just look for the creepy lady on the couch with the newborn baby with cupcake wrappers all around her—hopefully, I’ll be the hot chick at the counter that looks like there was no way she had a baby. 😉
