Cupcake shop frosting

chowser Apr 25, 2011 10:25 AM

Why are they always so overly sweet? Why do they depend so much on variations American buttercream? I'm not a huge fan of cupcake bake shops but even when the cupcake itself is good, the frosting is overwhelming. Has any had a good store/bakery cupcake that isn't overwhelmed in sweet frosting? Why are cupcake shops worst than bakeries when it comes to different types of frosting?
