Cupcakes come in all shapes and sizes, but not all are created equal. The best cupcakes have to have the perfect texture, moisture level and cake to frosting ratio. While this might be a tall order for some, it's no match for this Illinois bakery.
Eat This, Not That! recently compiled a list of the best cupcakes in every state. Here was the methodology behind their selections:
"We've partnered with Yelp to find the best cupcake in every state. To create this list, Yelp identified businesses in the restaurants and food categories with a large concentration of reviews mentioning 'cupcake.' These spots were then ranked using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning 'cupcake.' Using Yelp's list of best cupcake shops, we combed through the reviews to find the specific cupcake that tops the charts at each establishment."
If you're looking for the best cupcake in Illinois, they suggest trying out the Peach Cobbler Cupcake at The Chef and The Baker in Peoria. Here's what they had to say about it:
"The Chef and the Baker serves up 'gourmet eats and homemade sweets' daily. Come for the savory bites and stay for their fresh bakeshop treats, including this peach cobbler cupcake."
