american cupcake


to continue the constant stream of food posting on this blog, here's another hot tip for you: american cupcake on union street is amazing. as with most large cities, there are cupcake places on practically every block in my neighborhood. my all-time favorite is kara's {vanilla coconut cupcakes, mmm}, but after a morning of shopping on union street we decided to duck in here.

the best parts about american cupcake are a) outdoor seating for these sunny weekends we've had, b) champagne/wine pairings for cupcakes - we did sofia in the cute pink cans, and c) their crazy array of flavors, from pixi stick to fleur de sel. i chose cookies n' cream, and i can honestly say it's in my top 3 cupcakes i've ever had. it was like a dairy queen blizzard in baked form, if that makes any sense!

on that note, i'm going to be posting about the diet i've been on since january 1st...even i'm laughing as i write that...but it actually is working, despite what you see here. promise. ;)

If you haven't tried it yet you should check out That Takes The Cake. It's also on Union, between Fillmore and Steiner. It's owned by a super sweet husband and wife team. And I think they are better than Kara's. I tried American when they first opened and I wasn't very impressed but I think they probably still had some kinks to work out at that point.
