Penitent: Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. It’s been 24 hours since my last confession. I accuse myself of the following transgressions: lust, greed, and gluttony.
Priest: Go on.
Penitent: I’ve got it bad for Saints & Sinners Sweet Shoppe, a new cupcake kitchen down in Deep Ellum. There, fashion designer-turned-baker Ava Marie Carmichael crafts cupcakes by request. Creative flavors like lavender lemon, pink vanilla jasmine, lime raspberry, and violet are the holy grail, as are trusty faves such as carrot spice (gluten free), chocolate, and wedding cake.
Prices start at $18 for a half dozen, and Carmichael delivers on weekdays anywhere in Dallas for just $5.
I can’t seem to turn away from the immaculate confection. What do I do?
Priest: Say ten Hail Marys and give me Carmichael’s number — it’s the archbishop’s birthday.
