American Cupcake

Recently my best friend, Lizard, pointed me toward American Cupcake through an article posted on Urban Daddy about the newest item on their menu; Red Velvet Fried Chicken. Red Velvet is one of my favorite cakes and interesting food combinations like this intrigue me to no end, so of course I had to try it.

Myles and I drove up to Sausalito in the afternoon to spend some time walking around the town.

Outfit Breakdown:
  • Tights: Henry Holland for Pretty Polly Super Suspender
  • Boots: Forever21
  • Skirt: Forever21
  • Shirt: Target
  • Puffy Heart Necklace: Tilly's
American Cupcake is an adorable on the inside. The interior is almost completely white, but is bathed in a soft pastel glow from the lights on the ceiling which change color regularly.

American Cupcake has a cute selection of cocktails like the Drunken Ballerina (sparking wine and sprinkles with a little toy ballerina floating around in the glass), the Hot Guy (fresh lime, hot sauce, lone star and salt) and the Spiked Milkshake of the day. I asked our waitress for a recommendation and decided upon the Incorrigible; raspberry puree, rosewater, mint and sparkling wine.

And it comes with a cute little raspberry star gummi!
I had come for the Red Velvet Fried Chicken but in addition to that Myles and I also ordered the waffle fries, pulled pork sliders and a PBA (peanut butter with apple slices).

The waffle fries come with vinegar, lemon aioli and regular ketchup. They were pretty delicious, though they had no seasoning on their own.

The peanut butter sandwiches come with dainty little espresso cups of milk!
I don't actually have any photos of the Red Velvet Fried Chicken that make it look appetizing in the slightest. But I can tell you that it was lovely and moist on the inside. The red velvet cake breading on the outside has a very subtle flavor, making it just slightly sweet. The cream cheese mashed potatoes were delicious, and the cream cheese flavor was also quite subtle.


Dinner was delicious and by the end I was a little tipsy.. but I did manage to end the night with their Cotton Candy Cupcake which was as adorable as it was delicious. No fancy flavors or anything, but definitely tasty.

  1. AWESOME. That's really cool. I'm glad you seemed to like it. I'll have to come visit you guys and come here. I want the ballerina cocktail!!! (I never wanted to be a ballerina as a kid, but I want the thing inside it.) And the Incorrigible is really tasty looking.

    I am glad the red velvet chicken was subtle. I was afraid that the mashed potatoes would be really weird or overpowering. Also: I want that cupcake.

    (Michael said that if I went here, he couldn't come. He's afraid the lights might give him seizures. And because he's boring and doesn't like interesting food.[He seizes at a REALLY random frequency for lights. If its low and sort of slowly flickering, he'll seize. So he does it in PF Chang's all the time.])

  2. Oh yea. I like your hair.
