Dainties Cupcakes Los Angeles Reviews
Sep 21, 2007
i've been craving dessert so i went to dainties cupcakes. and, i went overboard and bought 6!!! all for me!!!
so let me cite all the reasons for buying as much as i did:
1. nutella cupcake
2. caramel cupcake
3. stupid chocolate cupcake
4. chocolate mousse cupcake
5. vanilla bean cupcake
6. vermont maple cupcake
yes, those are all different flavors. and in fact, there are plenty more but these are the ones that caught my eye.
dainties cupcakes are special. yes, they are cupcakes. yes, they are basically like devils food cake. BUT, they punch a small hole in the middle, then fill it with cream -- i.e., nutella, caramel, vanilla bean, etc. - then, they dip the top in chocolate. once the chocolate seals in the cream, they put another creamy topping (of the same flavor) on top. best way to eat it is fresh and right off the fridge (they recommend that if you buy it, refrigerate it and take it out just before eating it).
so far, i have had the nutella and caramel. (i can't eat all 6 in one sitting, unfortunately!) i enjoyed both but i LOVED the nutella!!! both cupcakes are fluffy. i do enjoy the chocolate dip on top that seals the cream inside. and the cream inside..... not too sweet. mmmmm... divine!
i urge you to go out and buy at least one.
logistics: dainties is not a restaurant or even a cafe. there is no sitting area. in fact, the place is hard to find.... unless you know where to look. folks, it is behind the winchell's donuts. just park your car, drop in and pick up a cupcake (or 6). take it home with you or eat it outside (standing up) or in your car.
you can either pre-order online and just note the time of pick-up (6 cupcake minimum) or you can just drop by and buy one at a time.
the cupcake flavors change depending on the day of the week. i found that mon, wed, fri has the best selection (if you are a chocoholic: the above i ordered plus mango and raspberry). tues, thurs, sat has some of the above plus cream filling ranging from coconut to banana to creme de menthe... oh, they have peanut butter then too.
shhhhh... i think dainties is better than sprinkles...
