Here’s a list of Martha’s favorite cupcakes and bakeries around the country that we’re sure you’ll love.
Swirlz Cupcakes is located in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago (705 West Belden, Chicago, IL 60614; swirlzcupcakes.com). Its stylish store and artfully-decorated treats are two reasons we love Swirlz.
Martha’s Pick from Swirlz:
Martha picked the chocolate passion cupcake. The rich chocolate cake, bittersweet ganache, homemade passion-fruit curd, and passion-fruit buttercream are topped with delicious candied sunflower seeds. Swirlz also offers a gluten-free variation of this chocolate passion cupcake. Special thanks to Jeremy Sher for use of these photographs.
