Best Of 2010: Cupcakes

Couture Cupcakes, which opened a year ago this month, has made the cupcake an art form. See: cupcakes with pearls, cupcakes with flowers, cupcakes with cherries on top, cupcake pyramids, cupcakes with sprinkles, and cupcakes adorned for any holiday you can imagine. But underneath, you could see any one of these flavors: strawberry cheesecake, tiramisu, cherry, mango, almond poppy seed, key lime, spiced cider, s'mores, vanilla raspberry, chocolate peanut butter. You get the idea. It all began with owner Joni McCoy making bridal towers and blossomed into 100-hour work weeks. This year, the company joined Facebook and built a following of 2,900 fans within six months. The future, frosted: Mobile cupcakes. McCoy hopes within six months to announce locations that'll make the treats accessible to people across the city. — Pam Zubeck
