  2. it’s me again – how much were their cupcakes? you didn’t list a price and their website didn’t have prices listed either…

  3. sorry! DUH on me! You did list the price ($3.50)- i only saw the bottom cupcakes and didn’t scroll up! Durrr! 🙂

    hi Mary,

    Love that cupcakes are finally coming into their own. The Golden hill area and South Park are my favorite haunts now.
    There is a guy in NY who has a bakery that makes only “manly” cupcakes with camouflage designs and bacon frosting.

    Hi Michael –
    I love that cupcakes are in fine form and available at places all over town, too! There’s a business that does “Pub Cakes” – beer with cupcakes – that’s pretty “manly” (though run by women) and there’s a place in Rancho Bernarado that’s called “Batter Up! Cupcakes” – really, really good. I still want to try “Cups” in La Jolla and I’m sure there are other places I probably don’t know of yet.
