I'm a huge fan of cupcakes! I've tasted many of them and could not leave out the two most famous: Magnolia Bakery (NY) and Sprinkles (LA). Magnolia Bakery already has a store here in LA (pic below), but my first experience was at the original store on Bleecker St, New York. It's a small shop, old fashioned and very charming. They also offer cakes, pies and brownies. The cupcakes are very tasty, but they ctick to the classics (chocolate, vanilla and red velvet).
