Faced with the challenge of finding a cupcake flavor combination to satisfy even the sweetest tooth, two seventh-graders, Julia Porter and Ella Berry, from Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School, came up with their own plan: a taste-test tour of Chicago 's most popular cupcake shops. They swore to see a dentist afterwards.
Named after "Chief Egg Cracker" John Nicolaides' third-grade teacher, Molly's produces enough cupcake concoctions to try a different flavor every day for two weeks. Molly's special, the Ron Bennington, is named after the XM radio comedian, and is a chocolate cake, peanut butter filling, butterscotch topping slice of heaven. (It's also Julia's favorite.) So dedicated to children is Nicolaides that he donates a portion of profits directly to schools in the community.
