HOLY COW CUPCAKES

If you know this blog well enough or me well enough anyway...you will know, without a shadow of a doubt, that there will always be three things you can find images of when coming to read/visit my blog. Those three things are my loves - and are strewn throughout my blog - image after image - all the time. And yes, in order, they are the following:
1) Images I've taken of my Children
2) Images I've taken at the beach
3) Images of any and all Cupcakes

Therefore, without further ado...let me introduce you fellow Hoosiers (and the rest of the world) to 'Holy Cow Cupcakes.' If you remember far enough back, I did a post on this place back in November. It is another cupcakery here in Indiana. Well that one post has driven more hits to my blog than anything else in this world. Well maybe aside from my client/friend maybe, Jennifer Foley (a.k.a The Watson's girl). My girl Jen gets searched 100's of times a day and because she is pictured on my site and on my blog in multiple places, it drives people to good ol' AGD. God love Jen for driving in the traffic. Thanks sista'! Ha ha! Either way, that cupcake post has become - shall or dare I say - famous? I get so many of you emailing me asking me if you can link back to my blog and mention my post about that place as well as showcase the pictures I took while there. Brent and I always laugh about how the owner of the bakery probably has no idea how much business is driven to her website or store via this blog.

With that said, I'm hoping to do the same thing for "Holy Cow Cupcakes" now. Shortly after I learned of the first cupcakery mentioned above, Holy Cow opened up their store a lot closer to where I reside. The kids and I decided to go check them out one day. Fast forward to today...and now they know us on a first name basis. IMAGINE! It wouldn't dare be because I am such a pig and make a stop in their store faithfully once a week, would it? OH NEVAH! NEV-VAH! Ha ha!

I took these interior images of her store back before Christmas. We left on vacation and I never got them uploaded - until now. Sorry for the delay Karen! Karen is the awesome owner and sole baker of Holy Cow Cupcakes. We love her. She is so kind, too sweet, and has the greatest wall in the bakery where everyone who visits the store can sign their name. You guys all know how much I love WALLS. She let Brennen sign the wall one day way back when they first opened. Of course I ran out to my car and got "Razzi." It was before "Big Papa" had hit the scene yet.

To say that we love Karen's cupcakes would be an understatement. My favorite flavor you ask...? Oh yes...by far it would be the 'brown sugar chocolate concoction." The icing is creamy and drips the brown sugar texture. Love, love, love them!

We were one of the first to try this flavor and it has since become a staple in our house. Really a staple. You think I'm joking, don't you? I'm.Not.! Thus why I will be beginning a brand new regimen at the gym next week after not having truly exercised since before Thanksgiving as well as after having added 30 extra lbs. to my frame since July of last year. Yes, I'm weak and have got to get back in gear. The breaking point came this week - when new jeans had to be purchased. I won't go into why. Let's just say that I wanted to cry. I am now looking for a new cupcake eating partner gym partner. An accountability partner. If you are local, live by me, and want to tackle shedding some pounds at the gym together with me, email me. I need a partner in crime. I'm not joking about this either. Call me. Email me. Calling all gym rats or gym rat wanna be's...I need you.
Oh yeah...look at those sugar crystals oozing off of that brown sugar concoction icing. YUM! I'm enjoying my last few tastes before next week hits. Reality is biting me in the but - unfortunately it doesn't take my cellulite with it as it bites.

In the meantime, stop in at HOLY COW CUPCAKES off of Range line Road in Carmel. Tell Karen that the Seaman's sent ya. ;)

Happy Saturday, Angie

if you wanna an awesome workout to do from home, try p90x. i just started it and it rocks!! i didn't realize there are infomercials for it until i bought it so i now i feel like a loser for purchasing something that has them, but...oh well! it's worth it. i got it off ebay for much cheaper than their site offers. check it out though if you want a 13 week program that just takes up 1 hour of your day at home! and remember, everything in moderation...you gotta have a cupcake from time to time, girl! ;)

Angie, I've been reading your blog for awhile...always crazy jealous of your Indy location :) My husband and I live in Southern Indiana, with high hopes of relocating to Indy in the next few years, closer to his parents (they live right near the Fashion Mall). We're actually headed to Carmel today--right by Holy Cow cupcakes--you had better believe we're stopping by!

If you were still down here, I'd totally join you at the gym. Honest. But since you're not, should we go to Original Pancake House 1 more time before you hit the gym?? HAHAHA!!! (evil laughter!)

There's just something about cupcakes that just makes me happy! I love anything that has cupcakes on it, I love to look at pictures of cupcakes, and most of all.....I love to eat them!

So, thanks for the yummy looking pics! I wish there was a cupcake bakery near me!

Oh how I wish I had a gym membership. I would soooo go with you and I live close! Although I would rather do a dance class or something so it doesn't feel like excercise. That is something I really need to do for myself for "my time" since I'm always home with the twins! Cupcakes look great minus the frosting. Can you believe that!
Have a great weekend!

Angie, I am sooo jealous. I want a brown sugar cupcake NOW! The only thing sweet I have in my entire house right now are graham crackers.

Just before I visited your site, I was coincidentally salivating over this place. bakednyc.com

Take care

Hi Angie! Thank you so much for the kind words and the blog post! I will post your site (SUCH CUTE DESIGNS!!) on mine. I would love to give the brown sugar cupcake a name after you guys, since you have been so supportive. Let me know what you would like to have it called. Example: The Seaman, The Angie, The Seaman Family, etc. I have a memebership the Monon Center and would love a work out partner to keep me going there. So if you decide to go there, let me know!

I went there! Had a quick (my fault!) lunch with Angie, then had to head over to my step-daughter's to help my grandson with an invention/sewing project. I took them some cupcakes and brought some home. YUM! Karen had Turtle cupcakes, red velvet, and other basic flavors like chocolate, yellow... YUMMM!

I told her, "Angie sent me," then she laughed and said that Angie is so sweet.

Too bad her mom sews her aprons. We could get another customer!

Next time, lunch is MY treat!!

To funny about the aprons Karen. Hadn't thought of that yet. :) Hope the gloves on the shirt went well with your grandson yesterday. Too fun!

And no, next time lunch is not your treat. You are my treat - just having lunch with ya each time. Next times its Tony's and cupcakes fo' sho'! Ha ha!
Hugs, Ang
