I've never met a cupcake I didn't like

. . . until now.

The other day at the mall, I happened upon Shot Cakes in the food court and decided to celebrate the end of Passover with a red velvet cupcake.  Filled with chocolate ice cream.

I know, it sounded good to me at the time too.

But oh was it not.

Do you remember that episode of "Friends," when Rachel attempts to make a trifle and accidentally combines the trifle recipe with one for shepherd's pie?  Joey loves it, of course.  ("What's not to like? Custard? Good. Jam? Good. Meat? Goooooood.")  But everyone else's reaction teaches us an important lesson: just because the individual elements of a dish might be good, the combination of those elements together might be very, very bad.

Cupcakes + ice cream = meat trifle.

Or more specifically, a really dry, overly sweet, and obviously stale cupcake + ice cream = meat trifle.

Repeat after me: "Avoid meat trifles, avoid Shot Cakes."

You may thank me for saving you $3.00 and a tummy full of wasted calories.

Oh no! I hate meeting bad cupcakes! What a waste. :(

Definitely sounds delicious. These aren't quite the same but maybe you'll like them better?

@ emilee: I know! It's such a heartbreak.

@ Jenna: That looks awesome!! Have you been eating lots of sweets in your pregnancy?

Forget the cupcakes. Go and grab an Azuki Cream Puff from Japonaise bakery in Brookline instead!

@ Denise K: I love those things! I used to get them all the time when I lived across from the Porter Exchange (where Japonaise has a counter). I also love their donuts. Yum.
