Ladybird - beautiful, inedible buttercream

my daughter bought home a pricy cupcake today from this bakery - this particular item had a not very tart lemon curd inside and "buttercream" frosting with very lovely flowers on top. If there was any butter at all in that buttercream, I would be shocked. It was tasteless and inedible like some kind of synthetic product..

I will say for this cupcake that it was moister than many I have sampled since the inexplicable cupcake craze began but I simply dont get how someone makes, and people buy all these calories with no flavor whatsoever.

On a brighter note, we shared a lovely little cranberry tart from Trois Pomme with a friend the other night. It was absolutely perfect in texture and flavor intensity - and that little baby which satisfied the sweet tooth of three adults, definitely had butter in that crispy perfect crust..
