Buttercream Cupcakes

I was sure we had a cupcake thread on this board but can't find it.

We were at Buttercream on Saturday and bought six. Bliss and Crave are better to us. The icing at Buttercream has an overly fatty feel (not like butter to me) and yet quite sweet. I couldn't detect the strawberry taste in the strawberry icing. The one icing that was at least unusual was based on an Earl Grey infusion. I'm only talking about icing because there are only 2 choices of cake. You can choose chocolate, which my husband said was dry, or vanilla that I thought was good then choose a flavoured icing. Crave strawberry icing really tastes like strawberries and Bliss has their wonderful variety of cakes and icings.

Also went to Tubby Dog for the first time. Hard to compare to anywhere else but fun.
