This cupcake bakery sells delicious filled cupcakes (and mini-cupcakes) to take away. The menu changes monthly to keep things interesting, and there is a different selection each day of the week. Some recent choices included a Mimosa Cupcake: an orange yogurt cake filled with orange champagne pastry cream and iced with champagne buttercream and Downtown Cupcake Brown: devil's food cake filled with chocolate ganache and topped with fudge icing. If the bakers are in the kitchen (and they usually are) they are very accommodating about letting you choose your own flavor combinations.
