Perhaps it was after reading the latest in a recent downpour of pie-is-the-new-cupcake stories, that cupcakes got desperate really started to slut it up on us. This weekend we were introduced to Sugar Babies Cupcakery, a food truck serving West Hollywood with mini-cupcakes that bear adorable names like the baby-blue “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and a carrot cake with a tiny edible carrot swirled on top. Kinda cute, but the dominant theme we found here is glitter, with most of the cupcakes coming sand-blasted in the sparkly stuff. Great, just what we always needed, a cupcake that gets you accused of spending hours in a strip club!
Anyway, if you haven’t completely jettisoned the cupcake trend for Simple Things’ mini-pies yet, you can check out the full menu online and find the truck trawling West Hollywood through its Twitter feed. Maybe it’s time for Magnolia to ditch “The Carrie” for “The Samantha” now.
