Costco Cupcakes

costco cupcakesWe bought a sheet of Costco cupcakes to celebrate the March birthdays in our family (including my own!), and they are taunting me in the fridge…absolutely huge, with the best whipped buttercream frosting ever, and just sweet enough to require a cold glass of milk.

Surprisingly, there’s only 257 calories in a Costco cupcake (if my source is correct*), but I’m not considering that a green light to have one for dinner.

Maybe a late night snack, but definitely not dinner.

*my source is not correct, but you don’t have to be nasty about it in the comments.

    Laurie – I think you’re off the hook this Birthday. :-) Enjoy your cupcake! I saw the little mobile cupcake stand in a book on Austin that we just bought!

    Actually, they’re closer to 900 calories. The information on the website is for a smaller cupcake…

    Sorry to burst your bubble… but there are 760 calories in one cupcake… 250 is for a “normal” sized cupcake but these are 3 times bigger.

    OK, people, I’m coming to this a year late, but I have to say: Think about it. It’s Costco. It’s giant. OF COURSE it has more than 257 calories. Don’t believe everything you read online.
