Gigi's cupcakesGigi's is at Hilldale, where you can sit down to cupcakes and coffee beverages or grab a box to go. These cakes are showy. Most are topped with beehives of frosting almost as tall as the cakes themselves (the flat-topped, creme-filled chocolate tribute to Hostess was an exception). When we've been there, the selection has been pretty big, with at least a dozen flavors in a good mix of chocolatey, fruity, and traditional cake-y choices.  These are merely calorie bombs or, rather, calorie grenades.

Gigi's is fine for a splurge, but for destination cupcakes we'd probably sooner head to Bloom, Cupcakes a-Go-Go, Daisy, El Bolillo...
