cupcakes & carousels

As part of my daily adventures (after the free blow dry, and to console myself on the fact that I just do not have the talent for op-shopping) I went for coffee and cupcakes at this cute place called Carousels. All the cupcakes looked deliciously delightful, and all had inspired names. I ordered a “Cherry Baby”. It was either that or “The Fonz”. My friend ordered a cappucino-ish cupcake, I can’t recall the name though. The place was just so ridiculously cute. It was decorated in a kind of retro 50s theme and the booths had these awesome collaged table-tops. They played Frank Sinatra and the girls that worked there wore full swing skirts and cute aprons, which I thought was just so… cute! I know, I should think of a better word, or utilise a thesaurus at least, but my brain is just not wanting to work right now. All in all, I think I’ve found my new happy place.

    Oh my, I love cupcakes!
    They look divine, and so does the place.
    I especially like the fact they played Sinatra, one of my all time favs! hehe
    What a great find

    ^ It's in Brisbane. It's kind of across/up the road from the humungo Chermside shopping centre. (I don't know if you know where that is, or if it's relevant to you at all but I'll just assume it is :D)
