Remember that Sex and the City epidsode where Carrie goes to the country with Aiden and says that squirrels are just rats with cuter outfits? Well, to me, cupcakes are the my daily indiscretion of caloric intake....in a cuter outfit, of course. And perhaps, the best thing about these little gems from Sweet Avenue Bake Shop is just how cute they are! Of the 30 types of cupcakes ($1.95 each) on the rotating menu at this traditional & vegan cupcakery, anywhere from 10 to 18 flavors are strictly vegan. Score! But on top of these cakes being artfully designed, their names are just as delightful. Ranging from Sexy Sadie (red velvet cake w/ cream cheese frosting) to Lucy in the Sky w/ Diamonds (vanilla cake w/ sky blue frosting) to Fluffernutter (vanilla cake w/ peanut butter frosting & marshmallow fluff) to Purple Haze (confetti cake w/ purple frosting and sprinkes)...they'll have you thinking you're in CandyLand. Yum!
