little ones…



First there came cakes…then cupcakes…and then their offspring took over. Mini cupcakes are the newest phase of the cupcake revolution with some shops selling their cupcakes only in miniature form. The bite-sized treat allows for more flavors to be taste-tested and consumed in larger quantities which is a quality I highly encourage. One of my favorites, Kumquat Cupcakery in New York was the first I came across that sold mini gems of cake goodness. With flavors like Maple Bacon and PB Banana Honey, I could gladly consume a dozen in one sitting. While I haven't tried this West Coast version, the mini's from Cuppie Love in Los Angeles look delish and super sweet, too.

  1. Are those cupcakes with bacon?? Absolutely fascinating. They’ve really taken cupcakery to a whole new level. I’ll have to go visit when I get to NYC next week.

  2. I keep coming back here to look at the bacon cupcake. Seriously. I should make it my screen saver, I love it!
