Cupcakes are so political. Bring them up to a foodie crowd and watch the sprinkles fly. Everyone has their favorite place, their frosting-to-cake proportion ideals, their moistness demands etc. etc. And some weirdos even contend that cupcakes are tired fad.
In fashion or not, I just like a good cupcake, and I’m pretty flexible as to what “good” means. Of course, I have my favorite—the yellow cake, chocolate frosting at Canter’s—but I can find something to like in almost any cupcake.
And I love, love, love the cupcakes at Autie Em’s in Eagle Rock. I’ve heard the arguments from the detractors, but I find them rich, moist and satisfyingly decadent. Plus, they’re beautiful to look at. Just look at the batch I picked up for a party recently—chocolate, strawberry cream and red velvet. Now, tell me: what’s not to love?
