Around Town: Frosted Cupcakery, Los Angeles

I am always on the lookout for great desserts, mostly of the variety that involve chocolate or ice cream (preferably both). When my friend and I drove by Frosted Cupcakery, the adorable logo and aqua exterior lured us in. Always willing to try new things, we decided to try the ice cream cupcakes, which may have been the best decision of the day. Frosted Cupcakery also has many other cupcake options that don’t involve ice cream, as well as tiny cupcakes for your dog (appropriately named “pupcakes”).

I wish my birthday was every day just so I could eat ice cream cake. These ice cream cupcakes were miniature versions of that. The ice cream didn’t melt right away or make the cupcakes soggy, and the consistency of the frosting and cupcake was just right. I loved the chocolate/chocolate buttercream filled with mint chip ice cream, and my friend enjoyed the red velvet/cream cheese filled with vanilla bean ice cream.
