Kara's Cupcakes

When visiting Ghirardelli Square, I came across a cupcake bakery that sold a few different types of gluten free cupcakes along with regular cupcakes.  I ended up purchasing 2 gluten free cupcakes and decided to save them for later.

However, due to presumably an outdoor heat lamp at lunch (San Francisco was freezing so it wasn't the climate) the cupcakes melted and I didn't get a good photograph of them.  They still tasted delicious, just ended up looking like a mess.

To get an idea of how beautiful they usually look, visit their website at!

The gluten free varieties they make include Sweet Vanilla (Vanilla Cupcake with Sweet Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Frosting), Chocolate Velvet (Chocolate Cupcake with a Velvety Bittersweet Chocolate Buttercream) and Coconut (Vanilla or Chocolate Cupcake with a Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting).  I was able to sample both the Sweet Vanilla and the Chocolate Velvet.  They both came with a sugar flower on top!
