RISOTTERIA'S CUPCAKES: MORE DETAILS!

I get the feeling that someone wants to know more of my thoughts regarding Risotteria's gluten-free cupcakes.

Let me put it this way: After an early love affair with the restaurant's chocolate chip cookies, my favorite Risotteria dessert has, to my surprise, become the carrot cake...and it still might be the carrot cake...but the cupcakes are my current gf dessert obsession. Last week I paid a special visit to Risotteria just to sample a couple more of them. They're cakey with borderline-drippy topping and sprinkles--and don't be surprised if you find a creamy surprise inside!

Now I have a better idea of what the whole cupcake craze is all about. Come to think of it, I like the Risotteria cupcakes even more than the cupcakes I used to eat at Cupcake Cafe. (Pre-diagnosis I ate them and, I now recall, often felt lousy afterward.)

And now I'm getting all nostalgic over the yummy pumpkinny gf cupcake I had at Soul Dog last year. It's pictured below.

I'm also a big fan of their carrot cake. I guess cupcakes are my next desert order there.

Too bad I don't like chocolate...

WCBS did a news story on Risotteria this morning as part of their Dining Deals series.
