Violet's in Pasadena has the best cupcakes I've had in LA

I know some of you never want to hear the words cupcake ever muttered on this board, but for those of you that like them Violet's has the best. I went yesterday and had the butterscotch, chocolate coconut vanilla, and the french toast & maple syrup. The frosting is sweet but I think that of almost everyplace I've been. I wanted to try their red velvet but they were out. The cupcakes are $2.25 and worth every cent. I've been to Clementine, Joan's on Third, Bluebird, Sprinkles and that bakery on Pico near Westside Pavilion and by far these are the best. They're moist, and have a delicate crumb, great flavor etc...
