Even before they blew-up: bakeries in New York, Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, cupcakes were always plentiful. Tupperware stacked with alternating yellow & chocolate for lil’ Sammy’s birthday. (Who’s Sammy? I don’t know.) But not always great.
But, I will say it, Sugar Mountain cupcakes from Sugar Mountain Bake Shoppe are hands down my favorite. Not just because I can walk there right now, few blocks down from where I eat, live, & sleep. But because—while I j’adore the frosting they make & could just take a tub of it, go to town–they are the only bakery in all of the world of bakeries of tried (a good many few) where I like the cupcake best.
I like the cake part of the cup the best!
Oh those fluffy insides. Thin layer of crystallized crackle to the out. Airy and moist. Makes me feel like a Ballerina in Candy Land while getting a manicure in my mouth & riding the Sugar Mountain Express. (See what I did there?) Like Care Bares floating on clouds while eating cotton-candy flavored chardonnay cake. I just can’t explain it.
|I took bites from all & ate almost all…. Yeah.
