The Just Because- Cupcakes

photo (27)Certain things simply create a special occasion. The Black and White Cupcake at the Deer Valley Grocery Cafe is one of those things.

In our family, the Black and White Cookie (particularly from the now-shuttered Bruce’s Bakery in Great Neck, New York) held a revered place in the dessert galaxy. The Deer Valley Black and White Cupcake is right up there. It’s not a comparison, given the obvious cookie/cupcake distinctions. However, it has the same capacity, within its category, to create dessert nirvana.

Which is why, on a recent Sunday, we picked up four…and saved them until the next night. A simple way to turn Monday into an art form.
