My sister is sprawled out on the couch with a back injury. She swears the only thing that will help her are cupcakes. Typically when she is sick or injured she finds cures like ice cream and baked goods. I’m sure.
Being the gracious sister that I am, after work I stopped by the new cupcake shop on Mission, in South Pasadena, My Sweet Cupcake. This recent cupcake boom still confuses me, but I am willing to reap the benefits thereof. I had seen the cute little facade and been intrigued, so I thought I would stop by. It was delightful. There are a dozen or so favors a day, rotating between all sorts of interesting things. On Wednesday there was Red Velvet, Chocolate, Vanilla, Coconut and Oreo, among others. I had the first three. The Red Velvet was absolutely perfect.
My Sweet Cupcake definitely understands the fine art of the cupcake-to-frosting ratio. Too often there’s just too much frosting. The cupcake is often too big, and the frosting can’t make it all the way down. There is no articulate way to explain it, but if you’re a cupcake person, you know what I mean. This place understands ratios. I am pleased.
I’ve heard that sometimes they can run out of cupcakes by midday, but I stopped by around 4 and there were still some left. I would definitely recommend a cupcake or two at this lovely establishment.
