A few doors down from Ubuntu, Sift opened inside Cake Plate Fashion.
These cupcakes are even better tasting than they look and they look really swell.
I tried two flavors ... from their website description
Ooh La La
Delicious red velvet cake with traditional cream cheese frosting
The Sky is Falling!
Oh Chicken Little! Moist chocolate cake, white chocolate mousse filling and rich chocolate frosting
Rich, moist, creamy ... I'm licking the last bit of frosting from the cupcake paper. The cream cheese frosting on the red velvet is light and full of flavor and for the first time ever the red velvet cake isn't dry but full of buttery goodness.
That chocolate cupcake with the white mousse filling ... lip-smaking good.
I nominate them as best cupcake in the Bay Area. I've tried quite a few cupcakes in the Bay Area. I've liked quite a few but I've rarely gone back.
I will so be at Sift on every Napa visit. I might even drive up there on St Patrick's Day if they have the Guiness chocolate cake with Irish Cream frosting ... though I suggest they get a more politicaly correct name for it.
A few other interesting flavors they've had in the past ... Chocolate Zinfandel cupcake and a Champagne cupcake. Here's the current list
They opened first in Cotati in 2008. Haven't been to that shop though.
