I'm not into the cupcake craze as much as others. Admittedly other cupcakes have often been too sweet (for the most part), or too dry, or I was against their crumb (how you judge a cupcake and cakes in general).
But an impulse buy at Dean & Deluca has made me a believer. The Two Little Red Hens' cupcakes are exactly what I want. Not too sweet, amazing frosting, and the right balance of dense moisture.
The cupcakes are pricey, but they also come in miniature size for a great wallop of frosting. I've only tried the red velvet, but I'm certainly jonesing for more.
