    I really like Big Sugar Bakeshop in Studio City. Best chocolate/chocolate cupcake I know of (with a disclaimer that I prefer less sweet desserts). Very good cookies and brownies too.

        Is that the one on the northeast corner of Riverside and Laurel? I recall seeing a cupcake place in the strip center across from Gelson's but I've never tried it.

          I will go check it out! Looks like it's on Ventura Blvd, not on Riverside....

            The place you're thinking of may be on Ventura but I'm sure I've seen a cupcake place on Laurel/Riverside. It's in that row of stores on the left as you enter the parking lot from Laurel. On the right is Subway and the UPS store

              "Famous Cupcakes" is the place in the mini-mall across from Gelsons. I haven't tried it. Kinda getting sick of the cupcake craze. I've heard that the new craze is going to be pies, especially individual pies. And lots of never-before-seen pie flavors. I await with much anticipation.
