Cake & Art Cupcakes

Gal pal raved about Cake & Art Bakery for the longest time. So the other day while in West Hollywood, I made an effort to stop by the place. There were lots of pictures of celebrities with Cake & Art cakes. I saw pictures of Britney Spear, Pamela Andersen, Betsy Johnson, and Panettiere, just to name a few.
Anyhoo, I got some and chowed into a couple immediately, chocolate and strawberry. To be honest, I got these cupcakes late in the afternoon so maybe the cake dried up slightly. I thought the cake part can be slightly more moist. However if you are a icing type of person, this is it!
I am just going to say death by icing..... Both cupcakes had wonderful rich and creamy icing on top. The cake may not be something to write home about, but the icing is another story. I was delighted to find strawberry jam inside the cake. This is the perfect time for a cup of good coffee without sugar. As much as I liked the icing, I had to take some off because there was so much I just couldn't justify putting all those creamy sugar topping in my body. Next time in the area, you have to give it a try for the icing. ~Smile......

So do you prefer more cake or more icing on a cupcake?

  2. I love your new format, and I totally have to agree with you and WendyB. The whole point of a cupcake is the cake...if you can't get that right you don't have much of anything. My favorite cupcake joint in Seattle is Coffee to a Tea with Sugar...long name, but divine cupcakes!

  3. Is that a cake in the first picture?? Woah! As for the cake vs icing... I think I prefer the rigth amount of everything, the taste needs to be balanced, but for health purposes if I were to eat this strawberry cupcake I'd skip the cream entirely, without even trying it lol. I usually opt for one thing at a time!
