salted cupcakes

I was in San Francisco last weekend and tried a salted cupcake at "Bi-Rite Creamery".
It was fabulous. I'm wondering if anyone has found something similar in LA. I've looked
around but no luck yet.

  1. It would seem to me that one could take any cupcake and turn it into a salted cupcake by a fairly simple process.

    1. You might check out the 5th from the top photo from the top here of the "Salt Peanut Cake" at the Nickel Diner downtown.

      You also might like to check out the butterscotch budino at Pizzeria Mozza which comes with large sea salt crystals sprinkled onto the top of the budino and gives you that wonderful salty-sweet yin/yang thing.

      1. Lark Bakery in Silver Lake has a great salted caramel cupcake.

          I will deifnitely look into this. It sounds just like what I am looking for. Thanks.

            Please don't tell anyone about the caramel cupcakes at Lark, because then there won't be any left for me.
            Or the caramel cake there either....

          2. Blue Cupcake also makes a salted caramel cupcake (which her website indicates won the 2010 LA cupcake challenge) and it is fantastic.

            1. I am no cupcake fan by any means, but the fleur de sel caramel cupcakes at Dots in Pasadena are excellent
