Georgetown Cupcake - Marble Brownie Fudge Cheesecake

Oh man - this Marble Brownie Fudge Cheesecake offered at Georgetown Cupcake in June was awesomeeeeeeeee.  It is a "Marble Brownie Fudge cheesecake topped with a whipped Callebaut chocolate frosting", and I knew I would like it as soon as I read the description.

The cake consists of brownie batter and cheesecake swirled together, and the rich, thick chocolate frosting really emphasizes the chocolate-y flavor of this cupcake.  I LOVED the cake portion especially, and really want this to come back as a regular flavor.  For anyone that loves cheesecake brownies, this one is perfect for you!

National Doughnut Day at Shake Shack

Back in June, I was happy to see so many fun promotions for National Doughnut Day on the 6th.  I already had plans to go to Shake Shack that night, but was very happy to see this sign in the store!:

Custard + Astro doughnuts? Count me in!

Here we have Shake Shack's vanilla custard blended with a Creme Brulee doughnut from Astro Doughnuts- amazing!  I love both of those items separately, so blending them together into the same cup was awesome, haha. This was a fantastic way to celebrate National Doughnut Day!

Shake Shack - Saratoga Race Course

I had a fabulous time last weekend up in Saratoga Springs, NY visiting my good friend M! It was so nice hanging out, walking around downtown, and of course checking out the Saratoga Race Course!  I happened to be visiting right on the opening day weekend, so it was an extra lively time to be around town.

One of the highlights of the race course is SHAKE SHACK, woo!  This isn't a standalone restaurant so it does not offer the full menu, but all of the classics (like the Shackburger below) are there.  

Of course I had to get the Sloppy Track shake, which is a Vanilla frozen custard blended with salted caramel and topped with Valrhona chocolate.  This is only served at the Saratoga Race Course, and it was a delicious bucket o' salted caramel haha.  While we came nowhere near finishing that monstrous shake, it was delicious and I'm so happy I got a chance to try it! I hope we meet again soon, Saratoga Shake Shack!
