Honestly, I used to be pretty ambivalent about cupcakes. But when I first tasted that cream cheese frosting on a Sugar Mama's cupcake, the heavens opened up to me. I will never be the same again. – Katelyn Alexander

Like Upper Crust's signature Marble Cupcake, which nests a dense chocolate cube inside the soft-cream center of a chocolate cupcake, the two winners in this category exemplify the respective strengths of two opposing, yet complementary ideologies: UC's products are rooted in a continental pastry tradition (with a Texas twist, of course), while Sugar Mama's is all effervescent Americana mixing nostalgia (the Frida, the Hemingway, the Churchill) with pop aesthetics (the Marilyn Monroe, the James Brown, the Pineapple Express). Très yum!

Julia Child once said, "A party without cake is just a meeting." And a kid party without cake is just a time-out. The good people at Sugar Mama's couldn't agree more. Their menu features old-fashioned four-layered birthday cakes, just like the ones mommy/momma/mama used to make. And fear not Eastside and Central Austinites – if the original South First location is a tad out of reach, they now have one on Manor Road, just for you.

Before our adult palates gravitated toward truffles and saffron, we were all sugar-loving kids craving the excitement of our very own birthday cake. Sugar Mama’s captures that essence with old-fashioned layer cakes that will vault you back to childhood and have your kids blowing out candles, wishing for another slice of frosted birthday goodness.

This South Austin bakery serves the sugar right! While the cupcake has become the trendy and ubiquitous handy confection, Sugar Mama's has the right idea with staples and daily specials. Our favorite is the Frida: cinnamon-chocolate cake topped with coffee-liqueur buttercream and cinnamon sugar. Kahlo would have been proud – proud enough to get some in her adorable unibrow, no doubt.
