THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Cupcakes Couture Restaurant Review

: Fueling the cupcake wars in Manhattan Beach is Cupcakes Couture, a charming split-level eatery with the look of a Victorian ice cream parlor. These cupcakes compare rather favorably to some of its higher-profile competitors, and are attractively presented and securely packaged. The Lady in Red (red velvet), Fleur de Caramel (devil’s food cake with salted caramel filling), and 24 Karat Ginger (carrot cake with crystallized ginger, topped with lemon cream cheese frosting and gold leaf) are just a few of the two dozen imaginative, often-frilly varieties. The mini-cupcakes make great snacks, and even more guilt-free are vegan or sugar-free versions. You can also score a good cup of latte here, and enjoy it at a table.

Pretty cakes, terrible frosting
by AnnDines on Sun Nov 11, 2012 2:24 pm
 
The cakes here are gorgeous. The cakes are good. The frosting, however, is another story. We had a cake that was a showstopper in looks, yet every one of our party guests ate around the frosting. It has a greasy texture and little flavor. It's unfortunate that perhaps we got a bad one, but it was such a disappointment. The cupcakes here are usually good. The storefront is darling and the staff is always lovely. More attention needed on the frosting and this place will be the full package.
