Be Still My Heart...

...well, not still, because that just wouldn't be compatible with life, which I've grown quite fond of.  But be calm, heart.  Slow thyself.

Now and again I hop over to visit Trophy Cupcakes with my eyes.  Just to see.  And drool.

Today I saw they have a new flavor available on Tuesdays.  Samoas!!!  You know, like the Girl Scout cookie also known as Caramel Delight?  Also known to me as a child as a cookie called a Yum-Yum.  Literally, my mouth waters at the mere mention of this cookie.  And my doggone stomach rolls over and growls.  Even when it's not hungry.

Just listen to the description of this cupcake:

"Valrhona chocolate cupcake filled with caramel creme then topped with coconut buttercream, toasted coconut and a drizzle of house-made caramel."

I mean, really.  I'm already wondering when I could find my way to Seattle on a Tuesday to get myself one.  Or six.  Or, heck, I think it's a better deal when you buy twelve.

That's it.  Just had to share the love.  I'll be posting another Valentine recipe tonight.  It won't be the Samoa cupcake, though it should be good...
