Best Cupcakes in America!

I logged onto my AOL account this morning, and wouldn't you know it? One of the healine stories was about the Best Cupcakes in America. Now, if you've read some of my previous posts, you know what a cupcake fiend I am, and how much I absolutely love Trophy cupcakes in Seattle.

Well. Guess who made the list of the best cupcakes in America?

That's right, Trophy cupcakes and their Hummingbird cupcake (trust me, it's amazing). Another Seattle cupcakery (Cupcake Royale) also made the list, which makes me really, really happy. For an addict like me, I have access to two of the top places. Yippie! For those of you in other cities, here's the list (article by Dulcy Israel):
