the icing on the cake

I love frosting. Love it. It’s the best part of any confection and a necessary compliment to a quality baked good.

And I don’t discriminate, either. No — I’ll eat it on graham crackers, pretzels or straight from the container with a spoon.

Some dentists people might shudder at the thought of feasting upon such a sweet treat, but those who really know what matters in life are silently high-fiving me as they read this, because we frosting aficionados are a particularly elite breed.

So can you imagine my immense joy when, while wandering through Boston, I discovered a cupcake bakery that offers frosting shots for a mere 50 cents?

JUST 50 CENTS, PEOPLE! For a beautiful and perfectly sized dose of sugary goodness.

Cheers to that!
