Call it a fad…call it a craze…call it whatever you’d like…gourmet cupcake stores are popping up all over South Florida (not to mention the United States).

Real simple concept— freshly baked cupcakes and coffee.

To be perfectly honest with you, I think that this concept will prove to be a short-lived fad but in the meantime, I checked-out Buttercream Cupcakes in Coral Gables…order and pickup at the counter—inside and outside seating—cupcakes run in the $2.75 neighborhood—at least 8 different flavors. A recent outing had me “sampling” chocolate, vanilla oreo, vanilla peanut butter, chocolate coconut. Let me make this real simple, really good stuff…an absolutely delicious product.

Just so we are straight…this recommendation is coming from a guy who can devour 8 glazed Dunkin Donuts while in the car on the way home— and to this very day…actually buys Hostess CupCakes (chocolate cake with white creme filling, chocolate icing/white squiggle icing) at Publix.

Like I said before, Buttercream Cupcakes are delicious. The joint is open, Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-10pm, Sunday noon-9pm. You can check for “cupcake schedule.”

    I’ve ALWAYS agreed with you Jeff, but this time you are dead wrong!!!

    …The Hostess cupcakes with the yellow/orange icing are by far the best!!! Too bad they’re just so hard to find down here.

    You have to try their Red Velvet. It’s the best.

    I never realized how many of these cupcake joints are really around. Like you I don’t get it. CUPCAKES doesn’t seem like an item that can propel a whole business model. Maybe ice cream, yogurt, cupcakes, coffee has a shot but just cupcakes, I don’t see it.
    By the way I haven’t had a Hostess Cupcake in maybe 45 years. You got me going to Publix to get me some. I use to love those cupcakes.
