Pre-B-Day Sweet #3. She likes it.

After having tried the ginger molasses cookie that Zinger didn't like, she wanted her next pre-B-Day Sweet to be good. Also to help cleanse her palate of the bitter molasses left in her mouth. Her pre-B-Day Sweet arrived and it.... DONUTS!!!!! These are mystery donuts (not in the bad way) because she doesn't know which shop they came from. They were 2 raised donuts: 1 glazed and 1 chocolate. She ate both and they were good. She thinks they are from Chuck's Donuts in the Peninsula. More please. She likes it.

Zinger got her pre-B-Day sweet #2: Ginger Molasses Cookie from the new Specialty Cafe & Bakery in Milpitas. It looks good. Thick cookie that looks soft and chewy.

Happy Tree, Happy Monkeys. She likes it.

There was a storm this week. It was a pretty big one with strong wind and heavy rain. All the monkeys were worried that the new banana tree would not survive the storm.

Pocket apple pie. She likes it.

Cousins made some pocket apple pies today. They were fresh out of oven when Zinger tried them. And Zinger had to have it with ice cream. There is nothing that beats apple pie a-la-mode. Hmm, very good. Zinger likes it.

It has been very hot the last couple of days. Zinger is not comfortable in such hot weather. She needs more sweets. She doesn't like it.

Stan's Donuts. She likes it.

It has been a long time since Zinger had Stan's donuts. She was very surprised when someone brought her some Stan's cinnamon twist and buttermilk. Zinger doesn't remember that Stan's has cinnamon twist. She tried it and she likes it. But she thinks their regular glazed raised donut is still better. And the buttermilk donut was so good. One of the best buttermilk donuts. Stan's stands up to its name. Still the best donut shop in the area. She likes it.

There is a dead mouse head on the deck. It's eyes are still open. The eyes look straight up. About a foot away from the head is a small furry body part. Some dog or cat must have killed it. Very scary. Zinger doesn't like it. Zinger doesn't like it. Zinger doesn't like it.

Waiting for Oxygen Pillows. She doesnt like it.

Zinger heard about this place European Sleep Works in Berkeley that sells Oxygen Pillow. It supposedly is better for you. Since Zinger parks on the pillow all the time, so she wants to have a good pillow that is good for her cylinder. It should let her cylinder breathe and have firm support, yet still soft. It should be good for Zinger to park in any position. She doesn't want stiff cylinder. The pillow is $130 for large and $60 for small one. Zinger needs one large and one small. She is waiting for her pillows. She doesn't like it.

So many sweets. She likes it!!!

Zinger found out that someone was going to Morgan Hill. So she decided to tag along so she could get some cupcakes from The Cupcake Shop.  Zinger got ready very early in the morning. This was going to be a good day because she will finally get to try some cupcakes. The ride to Morgan Hill was 
good.  Zinger rode sideway in the back seat of the car. She looked out of the window and waved her flappers when she saw other passengers in other cars.  She didn't see other cylinders.  When she got to Morgan Hill, she went to the Cupcake shop. But it was not opened yet.  Zinger was very disappointed.  She didn't want to wait so she thought she would get some donuts.  First one was Donuts & Things. She got a maple donut. Next stop was Lombardo's Donuts on main Street. She got a glazed raised. Next she stopped at Pink Elephant Panaderia. She got an end piece of the raisin cake and a piece of sweet bread.  Panaderia Ortiz was next. She got the pineapple basket, a few more sweet breads.  Last place she visited was O'Henry's Donuts.  She got a cinnamon swirl donut.  That's a lot of sweets!!!! But Zinger never too much. She really enjoyed her trip even though she didn't get any cupcake. Next time, Zinger.   Zinger said all the sweets are good.  She likes it.

Vegan donut. She likes it.

Zinger has heard about some vegan donut place in Las Vegas called Ronald's Donuts. Supposedly very good donuts. Vegan donuts? Can they be good?  Las Vegas is kind of far for Zinger to go, so she decided to look around locally for vegan donuts.  She found some vegan cake donuts at Whole Foods. The glaze on the donut is pink, so she had to get it.  well, the donut itself is kind of greasy. Flavor is okay. But the glaze is what Zinger liked the best. Sweet pink glaze. Zinger thinks they should glaze the entire donut, cover the whole thing instead of just one side.  Zinger thinks the donut is a 5, but the glaze is an 8. She likes it.

Starbucks blueberry coffee cake. She likes it.

Recently Starbucks has tweaked their recipes for their pastries by removing trans fats, artificial flavors, dyes, and high-fructose corn syrups.  And the taste........ Zinger had to try it. She had the reduced fat blueberry coffee cake. Normally Zinger doesn't like sweets that say "reduced". But she felt like having blueberry coffee cake. So she broke her rule and decided to give it a try. ( Zinger would not try low-fat sweets )  It's sweet and good. The reduced-fat did not compromise too much on the taste. Zinger likes that Starbucks care about customers' health to offer better sweets. Zinger said she likes the blueberry coffee cake. She would like to try their new banana walnut bread.  She is waiting. 

Philz Coffee. She likes it.

Zinger heard about this coffee shop Philz Coffee. They customize your drink to your taste. Zinger had to go visit this place and see how sweet they can make her coffee.  She rode up her pillow to the counter and this cute girl greeted her. She asked Zinger bunch of questions before she made Zinger's drink. Zinger told her that she likes sweet coffee with zing. It was a hot day so Zinger go it iced. It took a while before Zinger got her drink. Zinger took a sip.  Wow, very sweet, creamy and smooth. She likes it.

More donuts. She likes it.

Being cute certainly has its benefits. Again, because Zinger is so cute, she got another delivery of donuts. This time they are from Rolling Pin Donuts.  Rolling Pin has the best looking donuts. Perfectly shaped.  Zinger likes their chocolate donuts because they use dark chocolate and it's very good. But this time she wants to try their maple donut.  She doesn't get maple donuts that often but she likes to eat it sometimes.  After admiring her perfect donuts, she took a bite ( a big bite ) of the maple donut. Hmm,  good maple. And the donut is soft.  Then she looked at the other glazed donut.  She ate the whole donut in one bite. And finished the rest of the maple donut.  She is one happy cylinder. She likes it.  

Giant donuts. She likes it.

It has been a while since Zinger had Vasy's Donuts. They are known for their giant donuts. Because Zinger is a very cute and sweet cylinder, so someone delivered her two donuts from Vasy's. One of them is cinnamon swirl and one is twist. Zinger always likes cinnamon donut. And she likes the twist shaped donut.   Zinger looked at these donuts for a long time and then gobbled them down. Hmmm...... good donuts. Sweet and satisfying her donut cravings.  She likes it.

Zinger Cake. She likes it!!!!

Everyone knows that Zinger loves to eat sweets. Cakes, donuts, stickybuns, cupcakes...etc. The sweeter, the better.  So when Trader Joe's decided to make a cake named Zinger. This has to be a cake good and sweet enough to put Zinger's name on it.  It's a bundt-like cake with touch of lemon zing and raspberries and drizzledwith sweet icings.  The label on the package is the same color as Zinger.  And how does this cake taste?  Heavenly delicious.  And there is no preservatives or artificial colors in the cake. It uses no-aluminum baking powder.  All natural ingredients. Real sugar. It's all good for you stuff. When Zinger eats her Zinger cake, she feels like dancing on her flappers.  And everyone who has tried her Zinger cake likes it a lot.  The only inconvenience is that this cake is available in Minneapolis. Zinger will have to travel to Minneapolis to get this cake.  Zinger Cake, flappers up.  She likes it.

Cupcakes!!! She likes it and she doesn't like it.

Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes!!! Zinger loves cupcakes. Cupcake shop in downtown Minneapolis has so many varieties of cupcakes. Zinger wants to try them all.  Tha Mad Cow is chocolate cupcake with cream cheese frosting. It is super sweet and super good.  The Razz Ma Tazz is chocolate with raspberry fillings with raspberry infused French buttercream. She heard that they are very good.  Zinger had placed an order for one of each kind of cupcakes to be delivered to her ( 72 cupcakes total) . But nobody picked up the order for her. She was very disppointed.  This cupcake shop also sells a sweet brown sugar butter roll for $0.65 each. It is buttery and sweet with crunchy tops. It almost tastes like the Monkey Bread at Whole Foods.  It's a good deal too. She like it. Good cupcakes, she likes it.  No cupcake delivery, she doesn't like it.
