Treat yourself at Molly's. Try a cake as is or build your own. Choose a base (chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, carrot), frosting (we died over the brown butter), and topping (um, ice cream, anyone?). Then head over to the sprinkle station and do your thang.
In the end, the tried-and-true cream cheese frosting on Molly's had me waxing nostalgic about dessert tables in the Deep South. Mom would be proud: Of the six, it was also the cheapest.
In the ever-expanding universe of Chicago cupcake boutiques, Molly's Cupcakes takes the cake. Because they're fresh and made with high-quality ingredients, they're very satisfying.
Molly's Cupcakes is a bakeshop for the kid at heart. Those you don't want to miss. The Chocolate Peanut Butter, Strawberry Shortcake and Tiramisu - let's just say they score an A plus. And my favorite, the red velvet.
