nothing says thanks like cupcakes, right?

For awhile now I've been trying to think of something nice to get as a thank-you for the Breast Care Coordinator and the nurse who really went out of their way to be there for my mom during the last few months. I wanted a little something to go with a heartfelt note, but couldn't decide on anything for people I don't really know. Chocolates seem sort of already-done, so I jumped at cc's suggestion of cupcakes. 

There are a ton of great cupcake shops in the city, so tonight H and hopped the 22 Clark into the heart of Lincoln Park to Molly's. I got a box of six minis for each person, another box for H, my parents and I and a fourth for my coworkers, who no doubt would see me bring them in and wonder why they didn't get any. I hope the ladies like them, because I truly appreciate that they were able to give my mom the support she'd never allow us to give her because she's always trying to protect us.

Molly's was named after a 3rd grade teacher who inspired the owner by making cupcakes for the kids whenever it was somebody's birthday. She shared her recipe. 

Aren't these the cutest darn things? Their Red Velvet was named the best in the city.

We just had to take a picture of this sign in the window.

Hey! I think I've seen that bakery's sign before on the Internets! Fun.

Cupcakes are good gifts, I think. I am personally a fan.

You know what I like about this post? How Molly was inspired by the generous teacher...and she shared her recipe with you.

I've been yearning for cake all day and now this! I'm drooling like a dawg.

Okay, the posting about delicious things I have no access to needs to stop.

When I come out to play Guitar Hero with H, I'll need to remember to stop over there for some tasty cupcakes.

And seriously, scraping off the frosting? Why bother have a cupcake?!

Did you not try the cookie dough-filled Cookie Monster Cupcake? If not, you made a grave mistake. You better go back right now.
