If you thought you knew everything there was to know about making a cupcake, at Babycakes in Hillcrest they will make you think again. Offering layers upon layers of decadent sweet, Babycakes doesn't just indulge in the uber trendy cupcake but also the wedding cake, cookie and pastry. Housed in a historic home on 5th Avenue, every treat has a little surprise – from their signature Baby cake with a filling to match or oodles of swirls for birthday cakes or a wedding centerpiece. With an outdoor patio, turquoise painted walls and a coffee house atmosphere, if the late hours and sweet selection doesn't temp you, perhaps the cocktail coffee hour will. With an extensive menu that doesn't just limit itself to sweets (though, by all means, it can) Babycakes fills San Diego's sweet tooth…and beyond.
