cupcakes in Oakland?

Anyone have some recommendations for a dozen fancy-pants cupcakes in the Oakland/Berkeley area? Baby shower in that neck of the woods next week. Thanks.

      That's good, also Teacakes at Bay Street in Emeryville.

        Had a chance to try the tiny cupcakes from Love at First Bite from the dessert buffet at a party tonight. Loved the chocolate devil's food with peanut butter buttercream frosting. Also tried the strawberry that reminded me of the too-sweet flavor of strawberry quik. Missed trying the pumpkin ones, but some said they were the best of the three.

      2. You could try the Boniere Bakery in Alameda. See a recent report:
