A Cupcake Social's dulce de leche cupcake: 50 Favorite Dishes, no. 42
Oye, mamacita, that is one tasty cupcake
As a countdown to the Best of the Twin Cities 2013, coming April 17, the Hot Dish is serving up 50 of our favorite local dishes.
The key to the cakes from A Cupcake Social is that they are sweet without being saccharine. They're adorable without ever being cutesy. The flavors are creative without asking us to take a chance on something that looks like a Top Chef reject. These ladies understand why the cupcake was once king. They are setting about returning the maligned mini-dessert to its rightful place at the top of the dessert food pyramid.
