L.A. CUPCAKE WARS

All of us locals, and most visitors, have heard about and tried the sweets at Crumbs, Sweet Lady Janes, and Sprinkles Cupcakes.  We recently even got a Magnolia down on 3rd.  All of them really are fantastic, but I’ve got to recommend Buttercake Bakery.  It’s hidden behind Chin Chin in Sunset Plaza off of Sunset Boulevard.  They have great cupcakes, cookies, and cakes.  Try the blueberry cake.  They don’t make it every day, so you’ve got to put in a special order.  Amazing! *Update 5/27/11—Just had the salty caramel cupcake at Sprinkles.  Tough to beat. –Jimmy
