Sweet Treat.

Ernestine Ulmer probably has it right.  Her words of wisdom, "Life is uncertain.  Eat dessert first" are hardly the sort of thing you should ignore.  Sure, there is a time and place... and though the time is purely up to you , you might consider Cupcakes on Kavanaugh, a cute little cupcake-and-coffee cafe across from Za Za's in the Heights.

The flavors are various -- Classic Vanilla and Classic Vanilla and Chocolate, Red Velvet, Kavanaugh Carrot, Margarita.  I have a friend who swears by the Margarita.  Myself?  This particular day I indulged in a Chocolate Covered Strawberry, a baker's choice selection of chocolate frosting and syrup over a strawberry and a strawberry-flavored cupcake.  Served up with a cup of Larry's organic coffee, a perfect February afternoon pick-me-up.

The hubster got a big kick out of the Ghirardelli Squared, a chocolate-on-chocolate affair.  We also both enjoyed the Blackrock Bottom -- dark chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and a cream cheese filling.

The little cafe only serves up cupcakes, tea and coffee, and organic milk.  The sweet treats aren't cheap -- $2.95 for the normal selection and $3.25 for custom items -- but chances are if you darken the doorstep you're searching out something sweet no matter the price.  All items are made with hand selected ingredients such as farm fresh eggs, organic milk, locally produced produce, and Madagascar Vanilla.  A pleasant distraction.  Cupcakes on Kavanaugh is open Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.  For more information, call (501) 664-CAKE or check out the eatery's website.
