I try not to eat sweets often, but Sift was well worth it. We had the Stud Muffin and Almond Royale cupcakes. Wow, I understand now why they won the Cupcake Wars!

Winner season 1, Food Network, best cupcake award. We tried it all, and it's good, try the cruffles, chocolate covered all different flavors. Definitely 5 stars! Best cupcake I have ever eaten, hands down!
