Best Cupcakes in LA...

We've been spreading the word about our nomination for Best Cupcakes in LA on MyFoxLA's Hot List. We'd love to win 1st place for the 2nd time, but we need your votes to do it! Please click here to vote. Tomorrow is the last day to cast your vote.

Our nomination comes just in time for our debut in LA. We've been hard at work planning our new store opening in Hollywood for a few months now but we are finally getting close to opening! It looks like late this month our LA friends and customers will have a much shorter drive to get a Frosted cupcake. Our new location will be on N. Highland Avenue just south of Sunset. We'll keep you posted as we get closer to opening day. Winning Best Cupcakes in LA for the 2nd time would be a great way to make our mark in our new neighborhood!
