A $5 wedding cake cupcake from Dimples, custom made by their new decorator.
In a simpler time, cupcakes were modest homemade treats you baked at home and brought to a party, or binged on at home before buying a last-minute ice cream cake. No more. The era of the $3 cupcake has given way to that of the $5 cupcake, cupcakes for dogs and deluxe donuts too. With the opening of the West Village Dimples in March, there are more options than ever. To help you chose wisely, we present these cupcake portraits.
