Website: Two Little Red Hens
Price: Cupcakes are $2.50-$3.95 each
Atmosphere: Grandma’s kitchen. The place is tiny, but with the presence of tchotchke-lined wooden shelves and various gingham coverings, there’s a very homey feel to it. There are a few small tables if you want to enjoy your snack on location.
My Review: The main thing the cupcakes at Two Little Red Hens have going for them is that they’re bigger than the ones you get at most other bakeries (except for Crumbs, whose cupcakes are enormous). I gave the red velvet cupcake and their famous
Bottom Line: Nothing really to crow about at Two Little Red Hens. The cake is moist, which is an improvement over what some other bakeries offer (ahem, Magnolia), but the frosting is sort of generic and unremarkable. And the frosting is the whole point of the cupcake; the cake is mainly just a receptacle to get the frosting into your gaping maw. If you’re in the area and have a sugar craving, it’s not a bad place to stop in, but there are certainly better options available in the city.
