Cupcakery =D vs. Jilly's =D

So, cupcakes have soooo became a thing over the past few months. Well, let's just say I welcome that trend.

In any case, I finally tried out both cupcake bakeries in town: Cupcakery in CWE and Jilly's on Delmar.

I like them both, but for different reasons.

Jilly's is a great place for breakfast and lunch. The food is absolutely delicious! The decor sunny and bright. There is also a wide variety of cupcakes, from the Elvis to the Strawberry Cheesecake. A great alternative to your everyday lunch spot, and a change of pace to your favorite coffee shop. Did I mention cupcakes?

Cupcakery is the other great spot, and it's open late! A cupcake fix at almost any time of the day! The decor is much simpler. There is no food menu. The cupcake menu is also smaller in comparison. The cupcakes are not elaborately decorated and the flavors are not as fun sounding. However, I think the simplicity allows them to focus on what's important: YUMMY cupcakes! Cupcakery is the cousin of Cakery in Dogtown, known for their custom cakes. They know how to bake a good cupcake!

Shamless plug:
Speaking of cupcakes... apparently some schools are banning cupcakes! A fellow foodie friend of mine is starting a Save the Cupcake campaign. She is an experimenting cupcake baker. Anyway, check out her Save the Cupcake t-shirt giveaway contest!
