I found these little mini cupcakes in the departure lounge at LAX on Friday afternoon. Gingerbread, Vanilla Bean and Chocolate…..they were delicious gems of sweetness and delight.
Having just spent the last three weeks travelling around California, Arizona and Nevada I was on the hunt for good cupcakes (and coffee, but more about that in another blog). To be honest I was rather disappointed by the lack of bakeries making cupcakes but the establishments that we did find had some fantastic varieties available.
The ones that we found were:
Sprinkles in La Jolla, San Diego
Sift in Bel Aire Plaza, Napa
Kara’s Cupcakes, Napa
Cups Organic Cupcakes, La Jolla
Without a doubt the best was the lemon filled one from Kara’s at Oxbow Market in Napa – simply beautiful.
I have come up with some wonderful combinations so watch this space over the next few weeks for USA inspired cupcakes baking.
