I’m going to coin a new phrase… OMG!
What? You say that’s not so new? Well, let me tell you IT IS! Oh My Gigi’s (OMG) is what I said after taking my first bite of the most decadent cupcake this side of Heaven, compliments of Gigi’s Cupcakes in Norcross GA. Now, call me crazy, but I could faintly hear the sweet melody of cherubs serenading me with each bite. 😀
Ok Nikka. Back to reality.
Anyone that knows me knows that I have a serious fetish for cupcakes. It’s true! I’ve been to sugar rehab (several times).
So, while driving up Peachtree Corners Circle near the Forum shops, out of nowhere appeared this quaint cupcake shop; like an oasis in the Sahara. Yes, it was exactly how I imagined it to be with all those bright, yummy looking colors of pink and lime and chocolate, Oh My!
So, as I gathered my senses and proceeded in, I was pleasantly greeted by the shops’ owner, Deena Coughlin, who thanked me for stopping by. Of course I had to get the skinny on ALL of their 33 delicious varieties (eat your heart out Baskin Robbins).
There were so many to choose from, and I was more than willing to make the selection process last as long as humanly possible. 😀
One of my favs is the Wedding Cake, which was a white cake topped with vanilla buttercream frosting and sprinkled with tiny white sugary beads. It looked just like a mini wedding cake. The other flavor that I adore is the Scarlett’s Red Velvet. This cupcake was a classic red velvet cake with a vanilla filling, and topped with cream cheese frosting, a white chocolate heart and red sugar crystals. I felt like a kid in a cupcake shop (literally) surrounded by sweet goodness that I could not resist. Now where have we heard that story before?…hmmmm
Deena gave me the grand tour of the place which featured a delicious display of their vast selection of freshly baked treats, which naturally complimented their fun and inviting ambiance. And, get this…they change the menu daily! Wow!
Ok, I’m headed back to Gigi’s right now!
So, if you’re ever in the area you should stop by Gigi’s Cupcakes to grab yourself a little piece of heaven. Believe me its well worth the visit (or two, or three, or…) 😀
