Date 44: Sweet things with a sweet person
We like desserts.
We clearly like desserts. We clearly like food in general. A lot of our dates center around food.
It had been a while, however, since I asked littlestar out specifically for dessert. I wanted to take her some place interesting and new, and after some looking, I found a likely candidate. I poked around a little bit, read as many reviews as I could stand, and decided it would be fun to have our first try at the place be out on a date together.
I made sure to sell its virtues first, of course, so littlestar wouldn't be too dubious about a taste-unseen (so to speak) choice.
On the evening of a typically busy Wednesday we headed out together for Sunnyvale and the charmingly named Sugar Butter Flour. It took a little looking to find the place in one of many Sunnyvale strip malls, and we were both pretty curious about what we were going to find when we went in.
It was, all in all, pretty exciting.
The display case started at cupcakes on the left and then transitioned to tarts, mousses, and all sorts of everything special in between. We took our time trying to decide, and finally settled on a Creme Brulee, a Key Lime Mousse, and a mixed Chocolate Mousse.

I think we enjoyed it all equally, especially with the nice tea that littlestar selected to go with our dessert. We spent our dessert date time enjoying the desserts, naturally, and discussing the specialness of desserts. We also had a little debate about Sugar Butter Flour versus a prior date dessert supplier, Satura. I came out in favor of SBF, but littlestar is a staunch Satura supporter.
I guess we'll have to do both.
We both thought Sugar Butter Flour was great fun, and agreed that it would have to be a date venue again, probably sooner rather than later.
