Cupcakes that don't taste like a stick of butter

Farfalle | Apr 5, 2009 10:58 AM

I just had cupcakes from Crumb recently and thought they were very good. They stray a bit from the cupcake purists idea of good cupcakes maybe, but they did solve a common problem with store bought cupcakes. Most places use a buttercream frosting and go WAY over on the butter. I usually feel like I am eating a muffin with some flavored butter on it, rather than a cupcake with a tasty, sugary topping. For this very reason, I do not like many of the cupcakes from the more popular places. Please don't tell me to go to Magnolia or Cupcake Cafe - they are exactly what I am looking to avoid. As a matter of fact, I think Cupcake Cafe's cupcakes are disgusting. I had a film of butterfat in my mouth for a half hour after eating them. So, where else to go?
