I couldn't find the official names of these cupcakes on their online menu, but the red one was a red velvet and the second one was something like a maple pancake or just maple with a brown sugar filling. The frostings were different, although both appeared to have vanilla bean specks in them (love!). The red velvet one had a very smoooth cream cheese or sour cream frosting (unlike any frosting I've had...very silky and interesting), and the maple one had a vanilla bean frosting. As much as I love red velvet cupcakes, I actually preferred the maple cupcake with its filling, which is partly because it reminded me slightly of this Butterscotch Square from See's Candies. Both were good. I'd love to try their other sweets and their savory food as well! Their menu features some delicious-sounding items, including homemade fettuccini! They have outstanding happy hour and regular prices too.
