I made my selection... A grande, iced, vanilla latte accompanied by a red velvet cupcake. It just spoke to me through the glass; it just looked so delicious and I haven't had a cupcake in a long time. The barista kindly handed me my selection and I strolled out to my car to head home. Not wanting to wait till I got home to eat it, I took a big bite right in the car to get the process started.
I was sorely disappointed. There wasn't much taste to it at all, and I could almost taste the red food coloring. Starbucks would never want me for an employee because my buddies are too honest. I'm sticking to homemade and learning to pray for wisdom from deceit... ik.
To all you lovely pastry chefs, bakers and coffee roasters... Keep baking and keep brewing.
We love you very much.
