Cupcakes (Eastside) that don't cost a fortune?

I'm looking for a place where I can order a couple dozen cupcakes, and I don't have to spend a small fortune. I would prefer to spend under $2/per cupcake, and would love a place that gives a volume discount. They do not have to be fancy or decorated, just moist and tasty. Thanks!

  1. I tentatively offer up Yummy Cupcakes on Magnolia in Burbank. I say tentatively because I believe their prices are $2.50-3.00 per cupcake and while their flavors are inventive, sometimes the cakes themselves are a bit too sugary. It might be worth checking out.

    On another note, Porto's doesn't do cupcakes do they?

      Porto's does do cupcakes, although I've never tried them. In Glendale, they're only available on the bakery side, and I only remember seeing chocolate and vanilla.

        i love yummy cupcakes, and have used them for several events to huge eater's satisfaction.

      2. nope, never seen a cupcake at porto's... but there are so many other yummy options, it doesn't seem like such a loss.

        1. My vote is of Violet's on Holly St (Pasadena)... although, my experience is they don't keep very well. Enjoy on site or within a few hours, if you can! $2.50/each -- I'd call and ask if they'd give you a discount. The owner is VERY nice.

          1. Get the mini's at Auntie Em's-1.25 a peice, about 2 or 3 bites.
