More Cupcakes for Sacramento


Sacramento’s love affair with the cupcake is still going strong. A new cupcakerie called Esther’s Cupcakes recently opened at the corner of Fair Oaks Boulevard and Munroe Street. The menu of 16 flavors includes classics like chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and yellow cake with vanilla frosting. But there are also several offbeat choices, such as two tea-flavored cupcakes (green tea cake with red bean buttercream and Earl Grey cake with lavender buttercream). Most intriguingly, there’s a savory cupcake made with corn, green chile and cheese and topped with sour cream frosting. Esther’s Cupcakes is open 11 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday–Saturday. 2600 Fair Oaks Blvd., Sacramento; (916) 481-4800.
