Chocolate cupcakes are a dime a dozen, but what about a cupcake with bacon? How about a wasabi cupcake?
Sugardarlings, which recently opened in Lutz, specializes in creating unique and flavorful treats that push the boundaries and delight the tastebuds.
The maple bacon and ginger wasabi cupcakes are just a few of the specialty cupcakes produced by Sugardarlings, which also include a canoli cupcake modeled after the tradition Italian dessert.
The canoli cupcake is one of the store's best sellers, assistant manager Molly Hibbs said.
Shows such as Food Network's Cupcake Wars have given bite to the burgeoning cupcake business.
"Cupcakes are so big now," Hibbs said, and those shows are driving more and more people to Sugardarlings.

But Hibbs said it's the quality of their sweets that keeps people coming back for more. Plenty of customers have told her that Sugardarling's cupcakes are the best they've had.
She takes pride in their happiness.
"Being able to reach that many people with cupcakes is really nice," Hobbs said.
Sugardarlings is located at 24832 State Road 54 in Lutz. They also have locations in New Port Richey and Palm Harbor.
