We dropped by Molly's on a cycling foodie tour of the city and it was a memorable stop. Beautiful moist cakes and your choice of frosting, cream cheese is lovely as is caramel.

There are a few cupcake bakeries in the area and Molly's is by far the best. My two fav's are red velvet with cream cheese frosting and the Ron Bennington (chocolate and peanut butter).

We stopped in here and grabbed two cupcakes to go the other night. We got the filled Boston Cream and the filled Nutella Cupcake. They were both absolutely amazing. We have cupcake shops in our area but nothing like these. They were moist and perfectly flavored. Wish I could have tried them all!!! A must stop in Chicago.
