Cupcakes were once so trendy, and have now perhaps fallen by the wayside in favor of trendier desserts. But we still love a good cupcake, and here are a few fantastic ones from the Louisville area. This is by no means a comprehensive list, so if we've missed your favorite cupcake, tell us about it in the comments.
Orange cake with orange buttercream. The best cupcake to eat while dreaming about summer.
Annie May's is really great about providing sweets for vegans, or the gluten-intolerant, or those with food allergies.
Lemon cake, lemon frosting, candy lemon on top: zesty and zingy.
A moist yellow cake filled with cannoli cream and topped with chocolate chips and cannoli shell. One of their cupcakes of the week...perhaps you should beg them to bring it back. Their regular cupcakes are out-of-this-world good, with sweet almond oil in the frosting.
With a scoop of butter pecan ice cream and twice as much caramel frosting as you'd get on a non-upside-down cupcake; a to-die-for treat.
Not a cupcake, you say? We beg to differ. The difference between a muffin and a cupcake is...what exactly? They're only calling it a muffin so you can justify eating it for breakfast, trust me.
With Bailey's buttercream. St. Patrick's Day might be over but your celebration doesn't have to be.
