Cupcake ripoff
« on: June 04, 2006, 04:14:33 PM »
I went to my favorite cupcake place and I feel ripped off.  They raise the prices, the cupcakes are smaller and they get a little cheap with the icing.

Still delicious cupcakes dont get me wrong...but if theyre going to raise the prices anyway, why not raise them even higher and keep the cupcake size and the amount of icing status quo.  It ruined my cupcake experience.

Jeromy, :-*

I don’t know about your price rising, but I know something else that you continually cause to go up and up and up.  LOL

Is that frosting or cream filling?

While you all are sucking out the creme filling, I'll come up from behind and sample the cakes.  ::)

Oh Jeromy, now look what you've done - made me have a lascivious thought before breakfast!

Jeff which cupcake place do you go to?

I love the cupcakes at the cupcake factory (39th a& 9th I think).  Will and I would go there on Sundays (they also had great sweet potatoe donuts...which taste better than it sounds).

I htink its called Buttercup Cafe...the cupcakes are awesome as is the icing. LOL  They also have an incredible banana trifle.  But, alas, summer is here and I want to shed a few pounds...so of course now Im dreaming of sweets!!!

Ever hear of the place Cliff?  I think they have another location in the East Village called Magnolia Bakery or something like that.

The Buttercup Cafe is on College Ave. in Berkeley. 

Not sure if they have cupcakes, but they've got great breakfasts.

It best not be Magnolia Bakery.  There is absolutely no holding a candle to their cupcakes.  And while you're at it, be sure to try the banana pudding.  It's totally out of this world.
