Does a Kara's Cupcake Pass Muster?
- Moist vanilla cake, not plagued with the dryness that kills so many cute cupcakes. [Eyebrow raised slightly in the general direction of Citizen Cupcake...]
- Crazy delicious coconut cream cheese frosting, which oozes just so as you bite into the cupcake crown. ('Tis a skosh too sweet for my tastes, though, so I couldn't eat all of the frosting.)
- Not so many coconut sprinkles that you end up with half of Hawaii on your shirt.
I found myself in Ghirardelli Square yesterday morning for a meeting, so I did what any sane person would do: I hit the fancy cupcake shop.
Kara's Cupcakes, whose flagship opened in October 2006 on Chestnut in the Marina, branched out to the Fisherman's Wharf area in May of 2007.
This Friday September 12, they're slated to open a third location in Palo Alto in the Town and Country Village shopping center. Good for them!
(But moreso, good for my cupcake-loving lips next time they go down Peninsula way.)
