So Cupcake

You really do learn something new every day. For example, today I learned that October 14 is National Dessert Day. Now even though I am of the opinion that dessert should be enjoyed every day, I still find a day dedicated to sweets worth honoring. So, I've devoured a few squares of dark chocolate with sea salt, and I'm ready to cap off this important national holiday with a post dedicated to the new thing I learned last Friday: that Salt Lake City's cupcake scene was made a little sweeter this year with the addition of So Cupcake.

Tuesday through Saturday So Cupcake (which is tucked into a nondescript strip mall eqsue spot on Highland Drive) bakes a fresh array of six daily staple cupcakes and a sprinkling from their "specialty" list of nearly 50 additional combinations. Social networking junkies can even follow So Cupcake on Twitter or become fans on Facebook in order to stay up-to-date with the daily specialty selections. I arrived at So Cupcake just before closing on said day, so I was too late to get my hands on intriguing selections like the "So Pink Lemonade" or "So Rootbeer Float" but I did leave with a sixer that satisfied our dinner hosts:

Coco Delight, Hanky Panky Red Velvet, Key Lime, So Pumpkin, Starry Starry Night Vanilla (that would be the electric blue number) and another Coco Delight. - $2.50 each.



We found the cake itself to be more soft and moist than other spots we've visited, comparable in fact to that of the cult favorite Sprinkles. After a group taste test we voted the So Pumpkin most flavorful, the Coco Delight richest, and the Hanky Panky Red Velvet sexiest to look at. But cupcakes aren't the only sweet thing at So Cupcake: the owners, social workers by trade, ensure that daily leftovers are donated to area hospitals, shelters and nursing homes.
