If you want to get into an intense argument with me, try convincing me that there's a better tasting chocolate cupcake in Los Angeles than SusieCakes.
Trust me, I've tasted them all...LA's whole gamut of cupcake powerhouses: Sprinkles, Crumbs, Yummy, Georgetown, Magnolia and the list goes on (seriously, there are like 300 places to buy cupcakes in Los Angeles...it's nuts!). No chocolate cupcake even comes close to SusieCakes version of this classic treat. Yes, the chocolate cake is fantastic but the key is all in the frosting...SusieCakes chocolate frosting is seriously the most decadent, creamy, uncommonly addicting combination of chocolate amazingness that has ever graced the top of a cupcake. What the heck do they put in it!?....imported cocoa? coffee? bourbon? I've spent an unhealthy amount of time trying to figure this out and would probably pay to get their recipe, it's that good!
Whatever it is about these SusieCakes Chocolate Cupcakes and whether you live here or are just visiting, it's one of those desserts that you MUST try when you're in LA. Just remember, when you're standing in line trying to decide how many cupcakes to order...1 is never enough.
