Cupcake Couture

My friend Hilary picked me up a delicious treat from Cupcake Couture, a bakery in Manhattan Beach.

I've been meaning to get down to Cupcake Couture since March, when my parents first recommended it to me.  They visited Manhattan Beach while staying in Los Angeles and happened upon the bakery.  They asked about gluten free options and were told that the bakery does normally have gluten free options in stock and can also accomodate special orders.

The cupcake Hilary brought me was the "Chocolate Fudge" flavor.  It was out-of-this-world amazing.  Even Hilary, a gluten free expert after having visited Sprinkles, Babycakes, and many other gluten free establishments, enjoyed the cupcake.  It definitely tasted like what I remember a gluten-filled cupcake tasting like; fluffy, moist, and light.  It was delicious.  Shame on Hilary for getting me hooked on a cupcake place all the way down in Manhattan Beach.  I definitely want to try the other flavors.  I'll have to save future visits for 2011!

Do you love it or do you love it?
