Cutest cupcakes

Cakes, California

The SoCal cupcake craze is still going strong and while I'm particularly fond of the ones from Sprinkles, I flipped for these adorable designs by Kelly C'de Baca, of Once Upon a Cupcake in Mission Viejo. The desserts are a sweet alternative to a traditional wedding cake and are available in a variety of flavors; including devil's food cake, carrot cake and cheesecake; and can be topped with vanilla, raspberry, blackberry, chocolate, or peanut butter-flavored frostings. Plus, the price can't be beat: a dozen cupcakes start at just $24. You can see more cupcake designs here. —Heather Lee, Assistant Editor, Brides Local Magazines
