City Pages' Description

Have you been good? Very good? If not, you'd better clean your room and find some old lady to help across the street so that someone will buy you something from Cupcake, the new, stylish University Avenue coffee shop and bakery. Don't know which of Cupcake's 30-some cupcakes to try? How about the S'Mores one, in which a puck of chocolate cake, as lush as a pudding and as rich as Donald Trump's hairdresser, crouches beneath a marshmallow topping as thick, sweet, and sticky as Tammy Faye Baker in a bathtub full of honey. And it doesn't end there--oh no. At the crown of this rich, thick, sweet, sticky whopper of a whamdinger is a cute little rectangle of graham cracker and a darling little square of chocolate bar. Is this cupcake worth $2.95? If you need to ask, you obviously haven't considered the price lately of baseball cards, Barbie clothes, or pure unadulterated joy. Mom!

    We went to the CUPCAKE at the MOA, and was NOT impressed.
    I bought a 6 pack and a few maccarrons, and every single cupcake was really dry, the tastes were muted, and icing was not creamy in any form of the word, rather, dry and cracking.

    I went in sooo happy they were finally somewhere where I could get some, and was so disappointed. I get delicious, moist, flavorful cupcakes... More >>

    Just up the street from my house, a great breakfast spot, with delicious lunch as well, and the cupcakes aren't to shabby either!
