Best of the Bests: Cupcake


Southern California: The Chocolate-Coconut Cupcake at Famous Cupcakes in Beverly Hills (the poster promotions of the Kardashian family, the shop's celebrity endorsement, is initially oft-putting, but trust us, our favorite cupcake, maybe ever, is worth it). This amazingly moist chocolate cake filled with whipped cream coconut and topped with same. It's one of their speciality cupcakes, so it's only available on Tuesdays and Fridays. $3. 168 S Beverly Dr Beverly Hills, CA 90212 (888) 774-9140

Northern California: The Coconut at Cako in San Francisco, which is also chocolate cake with coconut frosting. There's no filling in Cako's, but it is still extremely tasty. Runner up is The Carmel, chocolate cake with caramel frosting topped with a dash of sea salt. Yum. $3. Cako 211 O'Farrell Street (at Powell) San Francisco, CA 94102 Phone: 415.404.7303
