Cupcake of the Week: Dylan's Candy Bar
|A cupcake fit for a princess: lots of sugar, lots of frosting.|
Dylan's Candy Bar is a store full of candy that we all grew up and loved. It's kitschy and full of pop, and a tiny bit of a tourist trap. However it doesn't hurt to shop there once in awhile if you are looking for something specific or a unique gift for a Yankee Swap. Also you can see winning outfits from Project Runway competition when they raided the store for materials.
Apparently they have expanded quite a bit since I've been here last, improving their cafe portion and moving their private room in the basement to upstairs. Naturally they sold cupcakes. But not ordinary ones. This "Princess" cupcake was one of three they still had at the end of the day. The other two was Red Velvet and one with Gummi Bears. Made up of chocolate cake and Sixlets, it's an ordinary cupcake that has been jazzed up.
Also if you are in need of a sugar high, these cupcakes have a lot of buttercream frosting -- as in half cake, half frosting.
