Cupcakes (2887 W Broadway) – in all its pink glory – has survived where all other cupcake-centric bakeries have come and gone. Their fluffy, moist treats are the crème de la crème of mini-cakery and come in ever-rotating flavors. Best of all? The cupcake girls don’t scrimp on the icing.
If you’re trying to think of a novel V-Day gift this year, forgo flowers and bring home a dozen minis for $13; a dozen regular-size for $29.50 or a single large cupcake for $7.50.
For Valentine’s Day we’re fixated on Feelin’ Razzy (chocolate cake with raspberry butter cream and red sugar), Red Velvet (Red cocoa cake topped with cream cheese icing), and Lava Flow (chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and raspberry jam finished with a raspberry dollop.) Good thing you’re encouraged to mix and match!
