WHY Dulce de leche cupcakes, either regular size or mini.
WHAT This spot hidden in a low-end strip mall on an unfashionable stretch of Lake Avenue rocketed to fame when its dulce de leche cupcake won the 2009 L.A. Cupcake Challenge. It deserved the win; we’re not even cupcake fans and yet we cannot resist these caramel-y treasures. All the cupcakes are good, and the cupcake cakes are birthday-party faves, but all we care about are the mini dulce de leches.
