I am a lover of all things sweet. Chocolate, sour candies, and most importantly - baked goods! And while there are many different cupcake shops in the Houston area, Rise Cupcakes is by far my favorite. Although if you'd like to challenge me on that, I won't hesitate to try out your recommendations for others :) This cute little shop has everything that you want from a cupcake shop - shabby chic decor, sweets from floor to ceiling, and a display case with the yummiest cupcakes you've ever seen!

The cool things about this shop is that they have five flavors they make every day, and then they have four additional flavors they make for certain days of the week. You can check out what they're going to make that day on their menu here.This is the "Not So Thin Mint" which features a chocolate cupcake with mint buttercream and chocolate chips. It even has a mint chocolate cookie in the bottom! This flavor is in a three way tie with my other favorites "Ole Faithful" (a red velvet cupcake with vanilla buttercream icing) and the "Heidi & Seal" (a chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream frosting)

This one is called "Show Me the Chocolate" and features a chocolate cake with milk chocolate icing and chocolate shavings on top. And of course, it's not complete with out their signature fondant topper.
