The site is primarily an homage to all-things-cupcake, and not a blog-of-horrors a-la-cakewrecks. This homage includes an extensive list of recipes (use the search box) and a very handy list of cupcake shops/vendors. There's a heavy NYC-focus, with a ton of other U.S. and international cities also thrown in, including Los Angeles. (And yes, it does warm my subversive feminist heart that Rachel Kramer Bussel co-runs a site devoted to cupcakes and their deliciousness.)
To all those brides who are wondering if cupcakes are passe at weddings, I can emphatically say NO. They are delicious, come in multiple flavors and designs for picky guests (and ahem, brides who can't decide amongst various cake choices), and require no cake-cutting fees or extra rentals of utensils or plates. (Since when did tasty cost-saving wedding dessert options become a "played out" trend? Because if you don't want your cupcake, I'd be happy to take it off your hands...)
Also, happy sea creatures made out of non-fondant frosting. Yes please.
