Dessert scene in Philly?

Hi there! I'm new to Philly and hoping to find some fantastic dessert places to explore in the area. I don't have a car yet, so I'll probably be roaming around Center City for now... anyways, any suggestions to amend / add to my budding list below are welcome!

1) Budino @ Barbuzzo
2) Macarons @ Sugar Philly Truck
3) Macarons @ Miel Patisserie
4) Whoopie Pies @ Flying Monkey
5) Gelato @ Capogiro's
6) Froyo @ Yogorino
7) Chocolate cake @ 4th Street Deli
8) Cupcake @ Brown Betty

For the most part, I will eat just about any sweet confection, but my personal favorites are macarons (now that I think about it, I guess that was kind of obvious seeing as how they were listed twice.) Other than Miel and Sugar Philly, is there a hands-down awe-inspiring macaron place you'd recommend? Or are those the best in the city?

And is it just me, or is Philly crawling with cupcakeries and cupcake trucks? Does anyone know why that is? I may be completely wrong, but that's the conclusion I'm coming to through my Googling. :P

Thanks in advance!
