I've always been a fan of cupcakes because they trick you into thinking that they are healthier than a slice of cake and they are just so darn cute, so I'm always willing to try out a cupcakery when I get the chance. We have a small cupcake store where I live, but the cupcakes aren't all that spectacular. This Wednesday, however, after a long morning of hiking at the Torrey Pines State Reserve, my friend and I drove over to Sprinkles Cupcakes and took a few of these cute pastries home for dessert.
They come in a dazzling variety of flavors, and the cupcakes are presented in a rather minimalist fashion that only adds to the charm of the store. From a design point of view the displays are breathtaking, and if you don't give a hoot about the aesthetics of it all, well, the mini cakes still taste pretty darn delicious.
