Cupcakes! Or great Bakeries in Austin...

Lixer--Have you tried the cakes at MadCakes before? I have found the cake to be VERY moist and the frosting light and not too overpowering.

Bummed about this SugarM review...I've been wanting to try the Carrot Cake cupcake since they opened but wonder if I'd be wasting time and calories:(

Oh well....maybe i should just bake them myself.

They do a lovely job of decorating cookies and I've heard their cupcakes are quite different and yummy.

Cupcakes! Or great Bakeries in Austin...

I really like Kneaded Plasures bakery off Far West for cupcakes. The Carrot and Red Velvet are dense and sweet.

Madcakes off Spicewood Springs offers a VERY moist yummy variety to cakes-bars-cupcakes. All have been awesome.

I love sugar!

Frozen Yogurt--more variety??

Hello-

Just got back from a wonderful trip to CA and here is what I noticed, non-fat frozen yogurt shops on every street corner. The other thing that made me smile was the variety of flavors they all carried..like cake batter, cookies n cream,chocolate malt milkshake,strawberry shortcake...ect..Mmmmm they were all sooooo yummy.

Where are all the kickass yogurt places in Austin that carry that kind of variety? I've been to one( my favorite) Tomunchi? off Parmer Ln but want to try something new.

Any help is appreciated because I'm tempted to fly back just for frozen yogurt:)

Fogo De Chow vs. Estancia Churrascaria

How are the desserts at FDC? Pretty sure my night would include salad bar and dessert since massive amount of meat just ain't my thing.

thanks

European Bistro-Pflugerville

Has anyone been to this place? Is it worth my time?

The menu looked fairly authentic.

Thanks

Gaslamp Quarter?

Is the Gaslamp too touristy? I am totally willing to go elsewhere for better quality food but have heard so much about this section of SD.

Thanks for the tip!

Gaslamp Quarter?

Hello....

Going to be visiting my best friend in SD next month and was looking for a place with amazing scallops. I've heard much about the wonderful places in the Gaslamp area but soooo many when viewing online. Any suggestions?

A fantastic carrot cake or bread pudding would rock too:)

Thanks in advance!

Best Carrot Cake?

Hmmm I'm on the other end. I LOVE terribly sweet cream cheese frosting...this is what i get for being on a no sugar diet.

Rudeboy..you would like Madcakes then. It's moist and not so sweet!

ALL you can eat SUSHI?

Beluga used to do a "all you can eat buffet" with limitations on Sat nights. I think they still do that.

Restaurants willing to modify for special diets?

Thanks Everyone...

She won't be here til Oct so this is plenty of time to scout around and find some good options. You can't have Sat fat with an MS diet so it can be challenging but Austin is pretty healthy(Thankfully):)

Restaurants willing to modify for special diets?

Hello,

I have a good friend coming to town who has MS and I'm trying to find good restaurants in Austin that are willing to modify for special needs diets. In CA there seems to be no issues with this but I wonder if Austin places would be willing or have the ability to do this.

Anyone out there with MS or that might have feedback?

Thanks again folks!
