Miami's Ten Best Cupcake Shops
|Always have a heart on them to show they're baked with love|
These are some of the tastiest little cakes we've ever tried, and when we heard they're not only gluten-free but also vegan, we knew we found something special. Owner Mariana started the company because she couldn't find a half-decent vegan birthday cake for her son anywhere in the city. Not wanting to let him down, she baked something he and many others would never forget. Now, Bunnie Cakes are a vegan's dream come true. Fluffy and sweet, they boast icing that's creamy deliciousness. We dare you to eat just one.
|Sweetness is the master of cupcakes|
And it all comes down to numero uno. Sweetness makes the top of our list because its cupcakes are simply better than the rest. They have the perfect density, consistency, moisture, flavor, and icing-to-cupcake ratio. Beyond all of that, the menu is 275-plus flavors long, and we were hard-pressed to find one we didn't like. Sweetness passed the test with its delectable vanilla version (Thrilla-in-Vanilla), whose cake and icing were embedded with vanilla beans and heady vanilla flavor. It was damn hard not to eat them all. Sweetness is number one because it is without a doubt the best place to get cupcakes in Miami.
Honorable mention: SpecialTea Lounge, for defying the ugly cupcake = muffin myth with its scrumptious double chocolate muffins; SweetCakes Edibles; and Stella's Sweet Shoppe.
