Sugar high at Molly’s Cupcakes in Lincoln Park (4.5/5 stars).

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on April 25, 2009

So on a day of binging, James, Anna, Melody, and I drove North to Molly’s Cupcakes, located at 2536 N. Clark Street, in Lincoln Park.  We visited on Wednesday night and we had to speed up there because they close at 10pm Sunday through Thursday and are open till midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.  Molly’s Cupcakes is amazing and reminds me of being a kid…if only my adult body could handle that much sugar in one sitting.  There are plenty of board games and even some swings, yes swings, up by the counter to enhance your flashback to childhood.

I ordered the peanut butter Nutella cupcake which is a peanut butter cake, Nutella filling, and a buttercream Nutella frosting.  I also bought a wild berry cupcake which is a blueberry cake, raspberry/blueberry filling, and a buttercream with fresh berries.  ($3.75 each).

Melody ordered the tiramisu cupcake which is a vanilla butter cake, classic tiramisu filling, and a fluffy buttercream as well as a lemon meringue cupcake ($3.75 each).

Anna ordered the chocolate decadence cupcake ($3.75).

James ordered the cookies-n-cream cupcake which is a chocolate cake, cookies-n-cream filling, vanilla buttercream, and a cookie topping as well as a cookie dough cupcake ($3.75 each).

Now, I do realize that $3.75 is pretty insane for just one cupcake, but I obviously won’t go out and get these every day.  Molly’s Cupcakes is great for the occasional time you treat yourself.  We all came in about ten minutes before Molly’s was to close but the staff was still extremely nice and very helpful.  Thank you to Yelp Chicago for the pictures and also to Molly’s Cupcakes’ website for all of the information!
