      Guys, this isn't close. It's Bakery House on Lancaster in Bryn Mawr. APD is well past its prime.

          Second Bakery House. Good, but dense, birthday cakes.

            so my favorite things are:

            fruit tart
            strawberry rhubarb pie
            birthday cake
            pumpkin pie

            but really, i like everything there.

          Clays Bakery…. It is difficult to find both a good cake and frosting in one, but clays excels in both. I am not a huge frosting fan, but you will find yourself waking up in the morning and taking finger-fulls of beautifully colored buttercream instead of drinking your normal joe.

            You might want to check out the Art of Bread by Georges Perrier in Penn Valley on Montgomery Ave. Not cupcakes, but killer desserts.

                Agreed, and I would add Le Petit Mitron in Narberth, although I don't know that I've ever seen cupcakes there, just delicious French pastries and the like.

                  Where is Le Petit Mitron located? In that strip across from the train station?
