Molly’s Cupcakes

The Ron's as ridiculous as it looks

The Ron's as ridiculous as it looks

I know what you’re thinking. Besides, “holy crap does that look amazing,” you’re also all, “elizabites, did you ever meet a cupcake you didn’t like?” The answer is yes, I have, but not this one. The Ron Bennington from Molly’s Cupcakes (above) may be the ruin of my red velvet obsession. With a crushed butterscotch topping, chocolate cake, chocolate frosting, and peanut-butter-butterscotch filling I had to have one. I took a photo of the RVC because they were lovely, but had to cash in the calories on this masterpiece. Not only is the chocolate ganache rich, creamy and heavenly, but the moist chocolate cake is actually filled with an intense whipped peanut-butter-butterscotch center filling. It’s just one selection from the “center-filled” cupcake selections which includes tiramisu, nutella, raspberry-blueberry and pastry cream. The place also rocks because you can make your own cupcakes, pairing your cake with your frosting and your toppings. Mini, vegan and classic cupcakes are on the menu, and a portion of all profits are donated to local schools. There’s also board games, vintage lunch boxes and wooden “swing” chairs hanging from chains at the bar. Did I mention the Cookie Monster cupcake with vanilla chocolate chip cake, buttercream frosting, a mint chocolate chip cookie and raw cookie dough center? Didn’t think so. Um red may be going away for a little while… 2536 N. Clark St., 773.883.7220
