    You know, I’m always impressed that people manage to take these photos without jumping in and eating right away.

    Thanks for featuring our zebra cupcake photo! It almost didn’t happen – we got the very last one that day! We’d been looking forward to it since reading about it here on DFB and would have been sorely disappointed if we’d missed out!

    I had a good cupcake at Pop Century last year. I can’t wait to try others.

  4. Greg says:

    I have a request.

    My wife loved the simple chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting at POR when we went last year. No one seems to have pictures of these simple cupcakes. Instead, all the pictures seem to be of the fancier cupcakes. If anyone could snag a picture of the chocolate cupcakes at the food court at Port Orleans, it would be greatly appreciated!

    That red velvet cupcake has been my breakfast on more than one occasion. :)

    The black forest cupcake from Contempo Cafe is delicious as well: Chocolate cupcake with cherry pie filling, a mountain of frosting and chocolate shavings and a chocolate covered cherry on top. YUM!

  7. Lee says:

    With the reviews of cupcakes, I would like to kow what kind of frosting is used. Is it made with confectioners (powdered) sugar, is it “whipped cream” which is smoother and much less sweet, or other. There are some of these that look like I should try, but I don’t want to waste my money (for my tastes) if it is the confectioner sugar & butter version because that is much too sweet for me. The Dulce de Leche one, for example, looks like it might be frosted with the whipped variety.

  8. Heather says:

    OMG have you seen the new Cotton Top tamarind cupcake from Kusifari? I can send you pics if you want!

  9. AJ says:

    Heather — I want pics!!!

    Lee — The Contemporary cupcakes are more of a whipped cream, basically a VERY light buttercream. :-) The others are hard core buttercream.

    You should really try the Spaghetti and Meatball cupcake at Mama melrose’s in DHS. Next time we go we will get a picture…If the kids let us before digging in!!
