America's Best New Cupcakes

Slide 19 of 23

Big Sugar Bakeshop, Los Angeles

The fantastically inventive home of the doughnut muffin and the apple pie bar, this terrific bakery also sells delicious cupcakes. Debuting in November, the Pumpkin Cupcake consists of spiced pumpkin cake with brown sugar buttercream. While some of baker and co-owner Lisa Ritter’s delicious desserts are surprising (an unassuming cinnamon cake explodes with the sweet-spicy flavors of red hot candies), other sweets—like the best-selling red velvet cupcakes with vanilla buttercream—are unabashedly retro.
