In honor of the anniversary of Elvis' death, Juanita Lane over at Dulce Desserts is baking up peanut-butter-and-banana cupcakes, as well as a batch of red velvet. What better way to pay tribute to The King? (Beware: they've been known to cause bloating.)
Or, if—like me—you're still fixated on the combo of chocolate and red pepper (see the Aug. 10 Bites post), try a Baja cupcake. It's the cakey version of Las Paletas' Hot Chocolate popsicle.
Dulce is located in Edgehill Village, at the intersection of Edgehill and Villa, phone 321-8700.
