Shops that specialize in cupcakes are popping up all over the place—but Red Velvet Cupcakery is hands-down the best cupcake shop in town. Here's why: At $3 each, their cupcakes are considerably cheaper than those at other places. The ratio of cake to frosting is just right—at about 60/40—which means you can take a bite that includes both without getting frosting up one's nose. The flavors and decorations are down-to-earth and delicious; there's even a vegan cupcake! Mini cupcakes are available for a mere $1. The takeout packaging respects the delicate nature of the cupcake, and makes for easy removal. Last but not least, they don't just sell cupcakes. If you're feeling like you need a little more variety in your cupcake life, you can get a customizable ice-cream-cookie sandwich. Get thee to the Cupcakery now.
