Best Cupcakes: Sweet Pockets

Staff Pick

Also located at 4338 Paces Ferry Road, 770-431-6611

Puppies, babies, iPods. People love mini versions of things, and cupcakes are no exception. The little bundles of joy are popping up all over the place these days in coffee shops, at weddings, on dessert menus, even in cupcake-only boutiques. We discovered cupcake nirvana at Irwin Street Market's specialty shop SWEET POCKETS, after biting into the Happy Monkey. For the bakery's signature treat, “cupcake girl” Lennie King tops a moist banana cake with peanut-butter buttercream frosting. King resists going overboard with the flavors and transforms the traditional playground snack into a gourmet delight. The Starlight is a classic combination of vanilla cake with chocolate chips covered in chocolate frosting and star-shaped candies. Cupcakes cost $2.25 and are baked fresh daily. They're almost too cute to eat. Almost.
