Two Little Red Hens went out one day

And made really delicious cupcakes.

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.
