i love cupcakes... always have and always will :) i remember hoarding from a bus mate who sold mini cupcakes at p2 a piece when i was in grade school. this was waaay before the Cupcake by Sonja's craze. during that time the "in" cupcakes were the clown shaped ones from Gateau de Manille or the beehives in Sugar house. yum yum yum.

this afternoon i bought a box of 4 sugar free cupcakes (p30 each) at a the KG Kitchen and Cakes stall at Tiendesitas. the cupcakes look yummy (and photogenic too) but are a disappointment! the chiffon is dry and has absorbed the smell of the cake refrigerator... sobrang "lasang ref!". sad. maybe its because the stall does not get a fresh batch often but still-- this is not an excuse to sell stale cupcakes! i checked the receipt and found out that they have a main store at Whiteplains... maybe i'll drop by soon and buy there to compare freshness. will also drop by Gateau de Manille (since it is in the area na naman- haha!) and check if they still have those clown cupcakes :)
