My New Perfect Pick-Me-Up
I don’t know about you, but sometimes my life gets a little stressful. And when the usual pinot, pilates or peonies pick-me-ups fail, there’s just one thing left: cupcakes. I had heard amazing things about Portland’s own Saint Cupcake but never experienced them myself – that is until I stopped by a couple weekends ago and discovered the Mecca of all things pink plus absolute heaven in a cupcake.
I subscribe to the school of thought that believes everything is better if you, as they say, pink it and shrink it. Saint Cupcake does both in a unique, fun and stylish way. They bake a dozen or so varieties each day, from carrot cake to chocolate fudge and offer both regular sized and (my favorite!) mini cupcakes. But it’s more than just the cupcakes that makes Saint truly saintly. It’s the airy, friendly and just down right optimistic feel of their NW store. It’s the kind of place that makes even the most stressful week fade away in a cloud of pink and buttercream.
Don’t believe me? Check them out for yourself! You can visit heaven, ahem, Saint Cupcake at NW 17th and Flanders or at Saint Cupcake Deluxe on SE33rd and Belmont.
