Best cupcake in Chicago?

    1. Depends on what type you are looking for, but my all time favorites, including chocolate and red velvet are from Fox and Obel. I also happen to love Sweet Mandy Bs for a sugar rush--just their plain vanilla. I did not at all like the new palce Swirlz on Orchard. No flavor to icing and cake not very moist.

        I second Sweet Mandy Bs! Absolutely perfect cupcakes.

      2. sarah's pastries and candies at Oak and Rush for sure!! Try the Black and White cupcake for a cool riff on an old standard

        1. Sweet Mandy B's yellow cake cupcake with chocolate frosting!
