Heavenly Cupcakes

I recently met up with a friend visiting from out of town, Anjalee, for dinner at Rama Thai in San Diego's Gaslamp district.  While the menu looked delicious, I withheld from eating because I had just finished up an enormous brunch at Snooze (check out that post here).

While walking back to my car from the restaurant I passed by Heavenly Cupcakes.  While it was hours since I finished my brunch at Snooze I was still pretty full from it but I couldn't resist stopping in to see Heavenly Cupcakes offers gluten free cupcakes.  The woman working behind the counter pointed out the bakery's gluten free Red Velvet option and told me that they often have other flavors available.  I couldn't resist indulging myself and bought the gluten free red velvet for myself as a Sunday treat.

The cupcake tasted very similar to Sprinkles' gluten free red velvet cupcake, which is to say delicious.  I'll definitely visit again to check out the other gluten free flavors at Heavenly Cupcakes.  They also hold monthly tastings on the second Wednesday of each month from 4-9pm during which you can visit the shop and try three mini cupcakes and voted on your preferred flavor; the aggregate winner will be featured as a special cupcake flavor the next month.  Parking can be a bit tough in this area so Heavenly Cupcakes offers curbside delivery as a pickup option.

Do you love it or do you love it?
