I've been anticipating the Cupcakery's opening for weeks. The second outpost of the Las Vegas cupcake bakery opened this weekend, just a few miles from our Frisco home.

I was sadly disappointed.

The cupcakes are $2.75 each (50 cents less than Sprinkles). They are decorated nicely, but not much better than high-end grocery stores' versions. The frosting is too sweet, and the cake is just cake -- nothing special about it and not as good as I make at home (and I'm no professional). When I was done eating, I didn't even feel as if I'd eaten anything, save the unpleasant sugary aftertaste of the frosting.
