True story: we here at the Current were having a tough time plowing through ‘Best of’ write-ups while news broke of the tragic explosions last week and we needed something stronger than a brisk walk and lighter than a stiff drink to keep us focused. Enter the cupcake. Just browsing Kate’s adorable, special Fiesta-themed menu — with options like Piñata (vanilla with pineapple cream and coconut shavings) and Rainbow Margarita — brightened our day, and even the healthiest health freak swooned for the famous Red Slipper (red velvet with a cherry on top) and Chocolate Tres Leches. Now that’s comfort food.
