    1. Phoenix metropolitan region.

      1. I have heard great things about TammieCoes Cakes in downtown Phoenix... went there last night with a friend, but they were closed. She's an incredibally picky eater, and had high praise for their cupcakes...

        1. i just saw that sprinkles opened a branch on scottsdale road near camelback. haven't stopped in yet. but in LA there was literally a line around the block to purchase their stuff. i thought the carrot cake cupcake i had in LA was beautifully decorated and all-in-all outstanding. no lines in scottsdale yet but definitely worth a try!

            I'm a big fan of Sprinkles, particularly any of the varities with cream cheese frosting-the red velvet, vanilla milk chocolate (vanilla cake w/choc cream cheese frosting), pumpkin (with cinnamon cream cheese frosting), and carrot (also cinn cream cheese). I reallyyyy hated every variety I tried at Cupcakes on Scottsdale road near the Houston's. They were dry, and the frosting was just plain gross (wish I could be more specific). They were also the same price or pretty similar to Sprinkles.

          2. I love the pink champagne cupcakes at Barb's.
