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.
In the heart of the Loop lies a cupcake oasis filled with frosted, flower-topped creations to service the random tourist or daily commuter. Owner Teresa Ging, who's been whipping up these sweet treats for three years, makes goodies ranging from the corporate (think edible logos) to "frosting shots" for the waiting parents of ravenous children. We all loved the way the signature flower toppings looked, and Ella in particular thought the atmosphere was "really fun."
