Miami's Ten Best Cupcake Shops

|Who doesn't love a good cupcake?|
|Almost didn't make the cut|
Many might gasp at the placement of this staple cupcake enterprise at the bottom of our list, but these cupcakes were a touch mediocre. The moisture content was through the roof -- in a bad way. We're all for richness, but when we bite into them, the last thing we want is for them to disintegrate before we can take a second bite. It was also a put-off that no employee we questioned could tell us what actually went into the cupcakes (i.e., natural versus artificial, local versus nonlocal ingredients, etc.). But hey, we didn't find out what went into Twinkies for ages.
|Name may stink but products make the taste buds sing|
Don't let the name sour your taste buds -- these girls are baking some sweet treats. They are big on representing Miami in everything they do. They even have a whole menu of cupcakes named for streets and popular places in Miami, such as the Coconut Grove cupcake, featuring a double dose of coconut in both the cake and the icing. Keep it up, ladies.
