Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being invited to Divine Desserts in Laguna Niguel, CA. The owners, Todd and Leslie Lewis, had a media day and baked up some tasty cupcakes for us “media peeps” to sample. How cool is that! After some drama with Angry Toddler at home, I headed over there.

I immediately saw a familiar face when I arrived at Divine Desserts, Elise, or better known as The Cupcake Activist. She was there with her brother, Eric, whom she brought along as a cupcake taster. He obliged her for the opportunity. She also brought along her friend, Kristina, because she’s a foodie too.

I went and checked out their kitchen while I was there. It was soo pretty and clean. Lots of stainless steel, not so good for camera flashes though. Isn’t it pretty? I don’t know if I would want to clean that though.

After taking a little tour, we settled down for some cupcake tasting. I felt like such a foodie. We placed the cupcakes on plates, and dived in with a our forks and knives.  We each cut pieces of the cupcakes to sample. I loved all the different flavors, but I was quite partial to banana.  Elise had her brother, Eric, take this photo. Perhaps, I borrowed it from her blog. It was the only photo taken of me. It’s probably a good thing. Not always good to see pictures of yourself, stuffing your face.

After we took a break from our taste testing, Kelly from Just Spotted and According to Kelly, arrived with her kiddos.  I actually saw them earlier in the morning as we went to breakfast together.  They got super excited when they saw all the cupcakes. And baby Charlie, well she got to have some Pina Colada frosting.

Divine Desserts also sells frosting shots, cookies, and muffin tops also.

While we there, Greer Wylder, From Greer’s OC, was filming a video for her site! If you pay attention, you might see me on there. Scary!! Must get on treadmill after eating those fabulous cupcakes and Holiday food! My co-workers did enjoy the dozen cupcakes I showed up with last night though!

OMG! That is so close to me! Why are you so close to me all the time and I never see you! Sad day! But yeah for cupcakes! My cupcake obsession is getting out of control lol! I will have to visit Devine Desserts. And you will have to come visit me at The Cupcake Store when the store front is finally open. Right now we are baking and doing special orders but the store is being remodeled!

I am less than attractive when I'm stuffing my face. Super unattractive when I stuff my face with cupcakes. Mmmm...so jealous.

I'm going to have to get to Divine Desserts in 2010. I've been following them on Facebook, but I wish they were closer to the north OC! Thanks for sharing your wonderful visit to their bakery.

I'm sorry. I don't think I heard anything after "frosting shots" - those are two words that when put together, are better than sex. Way better.
