I was staying with my friend, Dee, and I really wanted a cupcake. So did her husband, Dwayne. We all really wanted a cupcake. After all, I still had to belatedly celebrate National Cupcake Day.
So, it was 9:00 at night. Sprinkles was definitely closed, so I googled "late night cupcakes in Dallas, TX". I stumbled upon a local chain, Dimples Cupcakes. They had great reviews, and the best part is that their stores are open until midight. HELLZ YEAH. Let's go.
So, we get into the car. We put the address (that I got from their website, btw) in the GPS, and go forth. We arrive at the apparent address, and Dimples Cupcakes is nowhere to be found. Nope, no such business. No cupcakes anywhere in sight. What a freaking let down!
I call their phone number, hoping to speak to a real person of this alusive apparent cupcake chain, and it's an automated system. But they have another apparent location just nearby! We put the address in the GPS yet again.
After the GPS literally took us in a circle and all over the place, we arrive at the second location for Dimples Cupcakes.
We get out of the car and get so excited that we finally get to have a cupcake. We get closer to the store and notice all of the lights are off. WHAT?! They're CLOSED?! No explanation whatsoever. Just a dark store, and piece of paper on the door with their phone number.
I call the phone number again, hoping I can for real speak to someone. Nope. Just an automated system and no explanation on why that store was closed. No live person to talk to.
And worst of all, NO CUPCAKES.
So you know what I say?! SCREW YOU, DIMPLES CUPCAKES! I won't even try finding you ever again!!!
|Dee and I shake our fists at thee, DIMPLES!|
I really think Dimples Cupcakes is a mythological cupcake creature. It's like a quest for the holy grail -- many have tried finding it and most have failed. Either that, or they're just a freaking inconsiderate business. Why advertise your store locations and hours only to have one not exist and one not open?!?!?!?! Furthermore, no explanation when I call the phone number you post on your door!
I hope every cupcake fanatic in Dallas takes heed to my warning: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIND AND EAT DIMPLES CUPCAKES!
And as a side note: Who names their cupcake store Dimples?! Is this supposed to make me feel good about my body image after eating cupcakes or is it a stupid reference to smiling?
Well, guess what. NO DIMPLES HERE.
There were no dimples on my face due to smiling or extra dimples on my Texas Toast due to the eating of cupcakes. The cupcake gods were against us that night. It was a cupcake catastrophe.
