Manhattan Beach cupcakeries
After the prenatal massage in Manhattan Beach, I scoped out two cupcakeries before walking on the pier. Becker's Bakery was super popular and had a line out the door. I decided on a mini vanilla cupcake with lemon buttercream icing for $1.50. Yum! I inhaled it immediately.
Next up was Cupcake Couture of Manhattan Beach. This cupcakery was a participant at Cupcake Challenge 2010. They had a nice Easter special of buying 3 getting one free. I ordered the Luscious Lemon and Little Miss Shortcake. Both cupcakes were decadent. The lemon one had lemon meringue frosting and lemon filling, while the shortcake had strawberry jam with strawberry frosting and macaroon on top. I got my friend the Lady in Red and Spiced Apple Orchard. The lady in red was a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting and spiced apple one was a spice cake with oatmeal and caramel topping.
