They say the cupcake craze is waning and I would have to agree. A couple of years ago I was excited to try all the different bakeries that were popping up like crazy but now…meh. That being said, there is one cupcake bakery that will keep me clamoring for more as it serves, hands down, the best cupcakes I have ever had.
That place is called Big Man Bakes and it is a dessert oasis in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Just look at them.
Although, they look great in the photo, it doesn’t even compare to how they look in person. And the taste! The coconut cupcake has piles and piles of delcious coconut on top. And the Old School (ah the Old School) is SO INCREDIBLY GOOD. Rich chocolate frosting with a vanilla cake that has just a hint of almond. Per-fec-tion. Let’s see them again.
Oh man, I’m starting to drool.
So head on down to Big Man Bakes and taste the best cupcakes ever. No joke. At $3.25 for an extra large, it’s a steal.
