We're the wrong people to ask about cupcakes. Generally, we hate 'em. Spun off like snot from the dripping nose of Sex and the City, the fad started at Magnolia Bakery, which a friend of ours calls "Mongolia Bakery." There, in multiple convection ovens and near-slavery conditions, oppressed workers turn out the tiny cakes, then smother them in enough bad pink or green frosting to make you gag. The very best of a bad lot are found at Out of the Kitchen! (the exclamation point is theirs), which is also one of our favorite brunch spots. Pick the yellow cake with chocolate frosting, and discover a treat that deserves the name "cake."
