Cupcakes are small deserts that have become a big business. Howard County has a few stores that cater to cupcake lovers, and will get another shortly when Cooks 'N Cakes opens in Ellicott City. Above are some samples from Kupcakes & Co., in Elkridge. They include (top tier, clockwise from front right): raspberry red velvet, chocolate with vanilla, strawberry vanilla, chocolate hazelnut crunch, (bottom tier, left to right) caramel apple, chocolate peanut butter, and snickerdoodle.
