Cupcakes are good for you. OK, well, maybe not as good as a plateful of kale, but SweetArt uses no mixes, no trans fats and no high-fructose corn syrup, so you've got that going for you. And make no mistake: SweetArt's 'cakes taste every bit as sinful as their less-wholesome counterparts. From the Red Velvet to the Almond-Amaretto, from the Cookies and Cream to the Come-Hither Carrot, every offering leaves the mouth craving more. Other standouts: the Elvis (banana cake with chocolate filling and peanut-butter frosting, which led one customer to affirm that the King himself would still be alive if only he knew such a treat existed), and the decadent Fauxstess (SweetArt's high-concept take on a certain brand-name cream-filled snack cake). Stop in for happy hour on Tuesday or Wednesday, when you can buy two cupcakes and get a third free. Now that's a sweet deal!
