Not too long ago, I went to Molly’s Cupcakes for the first time. I, of course, had a cupcake. It seems as though cupcakes are a gigantic food trend these days. There are food trucks that drive around the city selling just cupcakes. There are bakeries that just specialize in cupcakes. There is a show on Food Network about dueling cupcake bakers. For me, though, cupcakes are not a fad. I have always loved cupcakes. I think for me, the best thing about cupcakes is the sheer versatility of these mini cakes. They can be any flavor of cake that you would use for a full-size cake. They can be frosted with any type of frosting. They can be filled with any type of filling that you can imagine. You can make a basic batch of cupcakes and fill and frost each one of those cupcakes with a different combination. That kind of variety with one flavor of cake is just not possible in one full-sized cake.
So, now, I have decided that I need to find the perfect place in Chicago to have the perfect cupcake. I enjoyed the cupcake at Molly’s Cupcakes. It was a peach cobbler cupcake. It was filled with peaches and the top of the cupcake actually tasted very similar to a cobbler with whipped cream. So, yea, definitely tasty. Was it my all-time favorite cupcake? No. But I think that I’m on the right track.
In your opinion, if I have one cupcake in Chicago, where should it be from?
