I need some recommendations for the best cupcakes you've every had in Southern California in the Santa Barbara, Ojai, Ventura and maybe also the LA area. I'm terrified of getting something with frosting made of lard.
I'm looking for something with both substance and style, like Miette in San Francisco.
I'd be curious of what people think of Vanilla Bake Shop and Lark
P.S. I love the look of this Superfine cake, I just can't afford it: http://superfinebakery.com/staci-and-...
