Sunday Afternoon Bikeride to A Taste of Heaven

     Sunday afternoon I met my friend Crystal for a bike ride along the lakefront path to Andersonville's A Taste of Heaven. It was deceptively sunny, and it was in reality, very cold. Crystal was dressed properly, however, with a windproof balaklava.

     After a windy ride north, we cut through the Andersonville neighborhood and arrived at A Taste of Heaven, which has some of the best cupcakes in town. Of course, I was so hungry by the time we got there, I forgot to take a picture of our treats (we shared), until they'd already been cut up.

      The Rasberry Rapture had a creamy center, if you look closely and was, as Crystal put it, "Really Rasberry Rapture." The Pumpkin Bundt was also very moist and tasty.

     We had a lovely conversation about all things writerly, as Crystal is also a children's novelist, and it was a wonderful afternoon, even if it was a bit nippy out.

That cream center was *amazing*. Sooo glad we biked it off, too! :)

The lake front path sounds so lovely to ride. A coworker who lived in Chicago for a short time was telling me how he biked the path and I was telling him how I read about it all the time through the various blogs I visit. Those muffins look yummy!
