Believe it or not, there are some people who do not like cupcakes. However, many of those people grew up attending birthday parties with the little cakes made with sickening sweet, grocery store “butter cream” frosting. If you consider yourself in this camp, you’ll be surprised to learn that the cupcake has evolved big time! And we think you owe it to yourself to do some “research” before your kiddo’s next big bash. To help you with that task, we’ve rounded up the best places in town to indulge. Flip through the gallery for the sweet details.
