2010 Cupcakes

Whipped Bakeshop

We were so busy admiring Whipped Bakeshop’s pretty little cupcakes in luscious flavors like lemon curd and banana chocolate chip peanut butter that we almost didn’t notice the Fishtown bakery’s younger, more modern child, the cakecup. It’s confectionery genius, really, and thrifty, too: Leftover cake trimmings (mmm, burnt edges) come naked or blasted with icing, ganache or whipped cream, in a grande-size plastic cup. Retail hours on Saturdays only.
