    Their frosting rocks and for 3 bucks a pop, the cupcakes are well worth it. They also offer a cupcake class which is awesome if you're like us and not a great baker.

    Banana cupcake with cinnamon-honey frosting. This is what I imagined breakfast would always taste like once Obama became President.

    Maybe I caught them on an off day, but I found the cupcake icing to be WAY too sweet & the sponge was on the dry side, Bleh...
