Chef Kara Lind has been featured on Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars” and in magazines like “The Knot.” Her cupcake flavors run the gamut from traditional (chocolate, vanilla and red velvet) to some more creative ones like “Sweet S’mores” and passion fruit.
When I was recently in San Francisco for work, I walked to the wharf area so I could hit Ghirardelli Square, the Mecca for chocolate lovers. While roaming the little shopping area, I came across Kara’s Cupcake’s. Even though I didn’t indulge to try one of her cuppies, I did grab a few pictures. (Sorry, I had to save room for the massive hot fudge sundae I was about to inhale all by myself! I know it’s a tough job I have…)
The store is filled with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows and lots of pink.
The display cases are filled with tempting treats. Kara uses local ingredients – like Ghirardelli chocolate – in her recipes. According to her website, she also visits the local farmer’s markets for inspiration for new flavors.
The decorations on the cupcakes are simple. But there’s a huge list to choose from.
