shop 52-week ten: Agnes Cupcakes

by Travelingmama on September 22, 2010

It started a couple months ago right after we arrived in Denmark.  A giant billboard announced the coming of a cupcake shop, Agnes Cupcakes, to be exact.  We went home immediately and looked up the website.  Hmph.  It looked like we were going to be waiting a while, but that did not keep us from guessing what wonderful treats would be coming our way eventually.  Fast forward to present time and this little gem is now open for business and we could not be happier!

This is the kind of shop that draws you in from the street.  Rows and rows of cupcakes beckon you to come in and try a bite… or two… or three!

The variety will drive you mad!  However are you suppose to narrow it down?  Lemon Meringue, dark chocolate, mint chocolate, blueberry…

Each one has it’s own appeal and while standing there it is hard to avoid drooling, which of course would be completely uncool so you pretend like you come into cupcake shops such as these every day… even though inside you want to jump up and down, clap your hands, and do a little happy cupcake dance!

The menu board does not help much, except to make you realize that you will now be stopping by every Tuesday for the mint chocolate cupcake and every Saturday as well.  We wouldn’t want to miss the cheesecake cupcake, right?

Do not be fooled by the empty stools because we snuck in very early.  We pass by this shop daily to take our boys to school so we can attest from many walk-by’s that unless you are an early riser you are likely to be fighting for a seat every time you come.  Malene, the shop manager, told me that they have been selling over 800 cupcakes a day and have only had one day so far in which they did not sell out.  Plans are under way for t-shirts and take home kits for baking your own Agnes Cupcakes, which I know my kids will insist on having!  I’m sure I will pretend to put up a fight, but do not be surprised if you see us all proudly wearing a cupcake t-shirt soon!

So, what is the very best part about being among the first to visit the coolest, hippest, newest shop in town?  Taste testing, of course!  We waited until our littlest was asleep to sneak away with the two older kids, which we felt fully justified in doing since he would, naturally, not even know what he was missing!  Which, ironically, left more for us!  Each bite was like a piece of home… sweet fluffy icing on a soft little bed of goodness.  Mmm hmmm! They were gone within a blink of an eye and yet we are all still talking about them.

Anyone want to go out for Agnes cupcakes?  I must warn you, though… if there is only one dark chocolate cupcake left I will totally be thumb wrestling you for it!

I have been reading you guys’ blog for awhile now and I love “shop 52” posts! I currently live in Lund and going to school there but I do get to go to Copenhagen several times a month for class as well so I’ll be making a stop at Agnes Cupcakes next week! I haven’t had a cupcake in weeks and I’ve been craving for some! Tack 😉
