Sugarbaby's and Crave: Houston Cupcakes Are Taking Over

Sugarbaby's is an experience. When you walk into the store you feel like you have entered into a little girl's or little boy's (because I was that kind of boy too) big, pink, and extravagant idea of a tea party. It is cute and there is no other way to describe it. The assortment of cupcakes is overwhelming. There are so many choices and so far all of my choices have been delicious ones.

My visit to Crave was an accident. Buster and I were headed to Uptown Sushi (very good sushi) and saw this place in the same plaza. After dinner we stopped and it was like Jesus wanted us to get these cupcakes. When we walked in the girl behind the counter informed us that they had 5 strawberry cupcakes left. We ordered our two and they other three were gone with an a minute, after which many people left Crave very disappointed and empty handed.

I now know why they run out of all of their cupcakes. These little cakes are wonderful. The icing was nice and sweet and the cake was moist. If this is what the cupcake tastes like at the end of the day I can't wait to try one when they have been freshly baked.
