Cupcakes Done Right - Big Man Bakes

2 2 Good | Jan 9, 2012 10:04 PM

I recently had some outstanding cupcakes from Big Man Bakes on Main St. in DTLA. It's right next to a parking garage where you can park if you're just running in to grab some. These really are the best I've had, ever - to the extent that I was eating the frosting by itself after I finished the cake and wanted to scrape the crumbs off of the paper liners, then was craving more two days later. The Caramel Apple had incredible frosting with a pronounced caramel flavor, a very moist cake with chunks of apple in it. The Mounds, which is named after the candy bar had my gold standard of chocolate cake; moist, really dark chocolate, not too sweet, and coconut buttercream frosting coated with shredded coconut which was not too cloying despite both the frosting and the coconut itself being sweetened.
