|Who doesn't love a good cupcake?|
Here at Short Order we strive to bring you lists you can't live without. For this particular roundup, we visited many, many places, trying both a standard vanilla (because if they can't do that right, what can they do?) as well as the shop's best-selling flavor. We checked moisture content, consistency, density, and icing-to-cupcake ratio. We scoured the streets and sampled many a treat, all to give you a certified guide to find Miami's best cupcakes.
10. Misha's Cupcakes
|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
9. Two Girls and a Cupcake
|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.
