We headed to the Blim art market our first day in Vancouver to sample Coco Cake Cupcakes by Lyndsay Sung. I first read about Coco Cupcakes online and was intrigued by Lyndsay's colorful, artistic frosting. I assure you that Coco Cupcakes are the real deal. They're lovely to look at and they taste fabulous! My favorite Coco Cake Cupcake is Lemon Love, a luscious lemon cake topped with lemon creamcheese frosting.
If you love cupcakes and are headed to Vancouver, I strongly recommend checking out Coco Cake Cupcakes site to see where Lyndsay will be.
#3 I'd happily settle for this shop in my hometown
Big City Cupcakes was near closing when I entered, and had only one tray of vanilla cupcakes with sprinkles left. I snatched it up as my husband was heard saying in the background, "I will have to put you through sugar detox when we get home." My verdict is that Big City Cupcakes's frosting is not as delicious as Cupcakes, and not nearly as light and lovely as Coco Cake Cupcakes. However, the cake itself is levels above anything I've found in Los Angeles. Vancouver could teach L.A. a thing or two about how to make and sell cupcakes to the masses. Viva delicious cupcakes and viva Vancouver!
