Last friday, I went to a birthday party where for dessert, we had cookies and cupcakes from teacake bake shop in emeryville. I have been looking around forever for a cupcake bakery in the bay area (a la leda's bake shop in LA or magnolia's/billy's/etc in NY), and it looks like i've finally found one for all of us cupcake lovers out there! i enjoyed the madagascar bourbon vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream frosting and thought the cake was of perfect moistness, thought the buttercream was a tad too sweet (but i tend to like my baked goods less sweet in general).
cupcakes are $3. cookies are $2. can't wait to actually go to the shop to check it out the next time i'm in the east bay.
