Susiecakes now open
I'm not really a cupcake connoisseur and with so many offerings around town I'm impressed how they all seem to compete. This latest entry is more local for me and sports a smart environment with a nice selection that includes both chocolate and butterscotch puddings, pies and an array of large and small cakes. We tried the chocolate mocha which was very good as was the chocolate peanut butter and the red velvet which tasted, well, pretty close to others I've had at 'Em's, Sprinkles, etc. They come in at $3 which still puts it below Sprinkles but does acknowledge the rent considerations. A friend tried the whoopie pie which I'm told is an east coast favorite. It's a domed shaped brownie like cookie sandwiched with an Oreo like vanilla filling. Pretty sweet. There's negotiable parking in back with Cold Stone Creamery and the rest.
