Stay Frosty
Frosting Shots at Sugar Bliss

UrbanDaddy - Frosting ShotsWe hear the frosting on your cupcake feels like it's been carrying the whole act for too long. It's ready to go solo.

Introducing Frosting Shots at Sugar Bliss Cake Boutique, a three-day-old cupcake specialist in the Loop.

The concept: Ditch the cupcake. Keep the frosting. On first blush it may seem like another confectioned vulgarity better marketed to the diabetic crowd. But these cream cheese-infused dollar indulgences—served in a mess-free paper cup—are actually the creation of a Cordon Bleu-trained pastry chef, Teresa Ging. (It's worth noting that Teresa was analyzing stocks until 2006, before high-tailing it to Paris when she foresaw safe harbor in the cupcake sector. So she can spot a trend.)

You'll find a lineup of seven daily flavors piped into delicate daisy petals and dotted by a single upside-down chocolate or white-chocolate chip. (On tap today: Banana Banana, Chocolate Cappuccino, Chocolate Toffee, Lemon Drop and Orange Creamsicle, among others.) Naturally, you could opt for the cake too, which includes golf ball-sized versions—or even a fruit-filled breakfast cupcake.

But why?
