Adventures in Suburbia: The Pink Box

April 25, 2008 at 6:41 pm | Posted in Cupcakes, essay | 8 Comments

My husband came home carrying a pink box. Some girls swoon over flowers. For others, it’s that famous blue box. But for me, it’s The Pink Box.

And now I’m home alone with The Pink Box. My hubby and dear daughter ran to Frys and my son is playing at the neighbor’s house.

And I can’t think about anything but The Pink Box.

So I pick it up.

Take a peek.

Look at it’s glory.

Then close it up and put it away because I have little self control right now. Yep, The Pink Box renders me completely incapacitated.

And since I can’t think of anything but The Pink Box, I might as well write about it. And I’m hoping that as soon as this post is up, everyone will be home and we’ll be able to dive into The Pink Box.

The Pink Box comes from one of our favorite bakeries, Icing on the Cake. Inside the pink box there is a black and tan cupcake, banana cupcake, chocolate sundae cupcake, mint chip cupcake and banana bread. They have the best banana bread!

Okay, I hear the car doors!!!!!

  1. Haha! The Pink Box. You are so funny! How cute of him!

  2. What self control! I would have had least eaten a piece of banana bread while waiting. So… which cupcake did you have?! (although I’m sure you tasted them all…)

  3. For the record…I ate 1/3 of the chocolate sundae and 1/4 of the black and tan. I was feeling full from dinner, so I guess it helped that I had to wait a bit.

  4. 4 in the family
    4 cupcakes
    3 banana breads.
    It’s not adding up. 🙂

  5. Megan- yep, it is a strange equation. The cupcakes are a free-for-all. The kids split a slice of the banana bread. I just finished my slice, so good!

  6. Yay for pink boxes… oh those cuppies look so good!

  7. you must be local…we love Icing on the Cake’s banana bread as well, their pumpkin spice bread is TO DIE FOR. however, i don’t love their cupcakes! I heard they use shortening in the frosting. But pumpkin bread…YUM!!!!

    you have a ton of self control!

  8. no, no, not shortening! The pumpkin spice bread is good too! Still, their banana cake, banana bread…oh, and my favorite chocolate cherry chunk cookies…well, I could go on and on.
