So, it all started with this little magazine entry that I saw in a Bon Appetit magazine over a year ago. In the left hand corner you’ll see it says Cupcake Couture like as in haute little gourmet cupcakes all over LA. Well, my mind of course went flashing right to a cupcake TOUR like my title says. And I of course told my husband baby this is what I want for my birthday and he said, “ok, ok whatever you want” well my birthday came and he was like, “I don’t wanna go”. And I said OK, what about for our anniversary and he agreed. I love cupcakes and he loves cupcakes, but I don’t think he wanted to drive all over LA for them, but I got his word, so bygosh we were gonna do it. Our 1 yr anniversary is actually next week, but since he is out of town and conveniently I had spring break this week, here we are! We’re off on a cupcake tour. We ate at 5 places and passed a few others, but they weren’t on the tour, so we didn’t stop. 🙂 I’ve kindly documented them for you here. I know the pics are kinda crummy, but I forgot to charge my camera, so I had to use my phone.

Couture, not coutour, but I couldn’t help myself

9 in the morning and we’re off…

First stop Violet’s Cakes kinda quaint we gave it 3 and 1/2 stars out of 5

Now on to Dot’s in Pasadena, so cute and I love their box. I ate pina colada and gave it a 4, Jake gave it a 3.

The culprit that started it all Sprinkles, they have one in Dallas and I got hooked.

And this was the line out the door, not to mention the 8 people inside. The “line” is legendary there.

Then to Santa Monica for Yummy Cupcakes.

They weren’t so yummy, we split one and the icing was TOO sweet. We gave it a 2.

On to Vanilla Bake Shop…

This place was SO cute, they served mini cupcakes seen below and sold t-shirts that said “Real Men Eat Cupcakes” I loved it. Jake said he wouldn’t wear it if I bought it.

This place was definitely a 4 or 5. Yum!

And then we drove in traffic all the way home. The End!!!
