Polkatots Cupcakes in Pasadena is a little girl's fairyland of pink walls and jars of rainbow-colored candies. We love their supermoist cupcakes, especially the adorable little mini cupcakes that satisfy the sweet tooth with minimum guilt.

Owners Alma and Melany have decorated some of their 14 flavors especially for Easter. The Easter mini cupcakes also come packaged in cute little 12-packs with a big, girly bow. The Bunny Hop, a nutmeggy carrot cake, would please any bunny, and most of their cupcakes are decorated with Springtime pastels that would fit in with your Easter theme.

Strawberry Shortcake, Happy Monkey (Banana-Nut Cupcake with Cream Cheese Icing), Dalmation (Vanilla-Chocolate Marble Cupcake with Vanilla Buttercream) and Lemonade are especially pleasing. Their flavor of the month for April is Cherry-Almond, but it's their Dolcissimo (Dulce de Leche Cupcake with Dulce de Leche Buttercream) that won two out of three categories at last year's Cupcake Challenge. The shop is open today until 5pm, closed Sunday.
