Riding the crest of the cupcake phenomenon, Sweets -- both the Minneapolis and St. Paul locations -- makes the creation of cupcakes an exact science. The care begins with the all-natural ingredients and then is infused in every step of the baking process. The basic flavors feature a cake that is dense and springy and a light frosting that perfectly complements the toppings. Get beyond that into the more exotic styles and it becomes clear why Sweets offers one of the best cupcakes in the Twin Cities. One petite sweet called Breakfast is frosted with maple buttercream and has its center filled with bacon bits to replicate the sweet-savory tingle of syrup commingling with salt. Kettle Corn is a sweet cornbread topped with honey buttercream and candied corn kernels. And Feisty Goat is a chocolate cupcake filled with caramel and pecans and smothered in a blend of sweetened mascarpone and goat cheeses. There are also seasonal and special items on the menu, such as the Roman Holiday, created for the Guthrie Theater's production of the play, which features a vanilla cake and a strawberry mousse.
