Sweet Treat From a Food Network Star!

So it all started with Indian food. There's this amazing place in St. Louis called House of India, which has a lunch buffet special that serves the most delicious vegetable korma I've ever tasted. Put it over rice, add a slice of naan, and top it with some raita, and it's a big plate of heaven.

Next door is another kind of heaven, in the form of cupcakes. And not just any cupcakes, but ones created by Jilly's, the latest winner of "Cupcake Wars" on Food Network. We'd been there a couple times when they were just locally famous, but since they baked their way to the top, the lines have expanded, along with the counter and the dining area. It was so fun to see all the hullabaloo, and I'm so happy for their success.

I was also happy with the two cupcakes we brought home: the Raspberry Fizzion (a special this month: chocolate-raspberry cake filled with raspberry jam and topped with chocolate-raspberry ganache, raspberry buttercream, & raspberry fizzy candy) & the Bee Sting (a vanilla cupcake filled with lemon curd and topped with lemon cream cheese, toasted almonds and lemon candy).
