Olympia's First Cupcake Shop!

It's about time! I've been wondering when this would happen and it finally did. Last week I heard a cupcake shop had opened up downtown. So of course I had to check it out.
Yesterday afternoon I surprisingly had an hour or so of no work, no school, and I got everything else done. What else better to do than visit a cupcake shop, right? So downtown I ventured, eager to see for myself. It was definitely better than I have had, but far from the best.
But, Hey, with some iprovement, I think they could do very well! I loved the atmosphere. It had a quaint, vintagey, invitingly homey feel. The smell of chocolate butter cream, melting on a warm cupcake, crept through the shop and out to streets. (I can still smell it when I think back:)
The cupcakes need a little help. I think they could be more moist and melt in your mouth. They were pretty dry and crumbly. But I really hope they improve, because I think "Bonjour Cupcakes" could be a great addition to Olympia.

I might have to try their cupcakes. I love the Bearded Ladies vegan cupcakes (even though I am not vegan, lol). =]
