South Congress, Austin, Texas, United States

Cupcake Art

File under: Cupcake Art. Not just for the clever and unmistakable Airstream trailer topped with a giant pink cupcake in which the orignal "Hey Cupcake" is housed, but also because the cakes themselves are food art!

There's a sense of nostalgia when eating a cupcake at the original South Congress location. It's just fun and cool and simple, not to mention delicious -- the best red velvet and carrot cake creations you'll find anywhere. Try the Michael Jackson (half chocolate, half vanilla... ) and the Vanilla Dream too. I'm not even a sweets person, but these? Delicious and delicately delightful.

These guys were doing the gourmet food truck thing long before such a thing was considered cool and certainly before it became a mainstream craze.
