The Top Ten Dishes of 2007: #9




This week I'm counting down my ten favorite dishes of 2007 -- and the absolute worst thing I ate all year.

#9. Cupcakes at The Cupcakery

The cake, whether vanilla, yellow or chocolate, is perfect: moist and flavorful. The frosting is terrific, its simplicity a virtue. My favorite of the regular cupcakes is the "Peanut Butter Cup," dark chocolate cake topped with peanut-butter buttercream that tastes exactly like the peanut butter inside a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Pieces of an actual peanut-butter cup are crumbled over the frosting.
