Very impressed by this little stand in the De Vargas Center. Nothing fancy, just good quality cake, good quality frosting, nice array of flavors. Tried three flavors, all were delicious:

Pucker up - lemon cake, lemon filling, lemon buttercream. Nicely balanced, neither too sweet nor too tart.

German chocolate - canonical top to bottom.

Worth-a-mint - devils food cake, peppermint buttercream, and a chocolate mint girl scout cookie on top, again nicely balanced, not too sweet and not overpoweringly minty.

Cupcakes were properly small, but not miniscule. I believe they run $2.25 a pop. I'll definitely be back.

    It tempts me every time I go to the gun store there, but I've so far been able to maintain my carb-avoidance. You're not helping. ;-) Thanks!
