Believe it or not, cupcakes remain a beloved food trend that seems to keep steadily growing as more cupcake-centric bakeries keep opening up around town. Whether you're on the cupcake bandwagon or not, at this time of year many of us make plenty of room for sweet treats as we gather with friends, family, and co-workers to celebrate the season. But it's not just Hanukkah or Christmas we're celebrating: Tuesday December 15th is National Cupcake Day*!

The way this holiday is observed is pretty straightforward: Eat a cupcake! But which cupcake to eat?

There are about a grillion cupcake bakeshops in Los Angeles, each with their own claim to fame from an iconic circle on top to the texture of their frosting to their signature flavors. And each bakery has bands of loyal customers (some of whom will line up just for a taste of their favorite treat.)
