From what I can tell, the cupcake craze has made it to just about every large metro area of the country.
Over the weekend, I was in Houston for a wedding and was strolling in a shopping area on the city's west side when I stumbled on Crave Cupcakes. They have all of the traditional cupcakes -- vanilla with chocolate frosting, chocolate with vanilla frosting, lemon, and strawberry.
But they also have 2 more interesting (perhaps seasonal?) flavors: gingerbread and pumpkin. A friend and I did a little tasting of our own. Gingerbread with cream cheese frosting was our favorite.
