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.
It would seem to me that one could take any cupcake and turn it into a salted cupcake by a fairly simple process.
You might check out the 5th from the top photo from the top here http://nickeldiner.com/photos.htm 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.

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