I haven’t been so excited about cupcakes since … the last time I had cupcakes – which was really quite awhile ago! I love Trophy Cupcakes in Seattle, but I hadn’t checked out the BA cupcake scene until one fateful birthday of my coworker Erin. It was her birthday, but I felt like the lucky one getting to celebrate; like when you were a kid, and you went to a birthday party and the host would give you a gift bag with fun little toys in it. That was the best. Cupcakes at work summoned that exact childlike enthusiasm.
Muma’s Cupcakes is a sweet tooth sanctuary in Palermo Soho. This place is keeping the cupcake craze alive and well in Buenos Aires.
And these aren’t your kiddy funfetti from a box cupcakes, although that would have been good enough for me. They have great flavors – red velvet, brownie with meringue, banana with dulce de leche, orange cream and lemon pie. And like any good cupcake should – they arrive dressed in their party best, with pretty colors, sprinkles and frosting. Muma has muffins too!
They’re pretty pricey at 16 pesos a piece, but they come with this adorable bag!
What a great way to celebrate! Happy Birthday Erin! Enjoy this great picture of my attractive coworkers taken before we pigged out on cupcakes. Yes, I made them take a picture.
