That Takes The Cake (cupcake shop), SF - any reports?

Just read about "That Takes The Cake" on Yelp. It's a cupcake place on Union St, SF that looks good & has cute names for their cupcakes like Bunny Bites & Sleepless in San Francisco.


Any reports?

  1. They're probably the best cupcake place I've tried in SF. I had the red velvet, which was moist and rich. One can also purchase day olds at discounted prices. I appreciate that as it indicates they're turning over inventory daily. I've had too many stale pastries and cupcakes at some places in town.

      I found the red velvet from this shop to be heavy, greasy and tasteless. I wouldn't waste the calories.

    2. Here's a thread from earlier in 2008.

      I reported on That Takes the Cake. I thought the cupcake flavors were very chemical-y and the frosting had a very grainy texture. Certainly not compelled to go back. I hope you will report if you go. I think Kara's is much better.
