Cupcake THANKS and results
I would like to thank the ChowHounders who offered up great suggestions like Miss Needle who suggested Pinisi, stroms who suggested Sweet Revenge, and all the others I have not gotten to yet. I'd also like to thank MMRuth for the idea with her baguette survey.
Also, please know these are just my opinions based on my own personal tastes not to be taken too seriously.
Here's the cliff notes on the first 15 bakeries:
BAD: Out of the Kitchen
O.K.: Ruthy's, Royale, Crumbs
GOOD: Ciao For Now, Billy's, Cupcake Cafe, Magnolia,
VERY GOOD: Chikalicious Puddin', Amy's, Kyotofu
EXCELLENT: Sweet Revenge, Tonnie's Minis, Eleni's
MY FAVORITE: Batch

oh no! I'll the the first to reply in order to apologize for suggesting the bad one! I had found the Out of the Kitchen cake to be moist.
Glad you liked Amy's - I think they are my favorite. Try a pink one next time.
ETA: everyone should click on her link just to see the sheer number of cupcakes she tested :)
WOW! Misnatalie - many thanks for this thorough report/research! This is terrific. Appreciate the info very much--my waistline thanks you too! Cheers.
