At Frosted, they bake and prepare their cupcakes fresh every day. All those hot ovens must have inspired them to create something cool, because Frosted’s newest creations are nothing short of heaven. Ice cream cupcakes are a modern twist on the traditional ice cream and cake combo — only this time the ice cream is in the cake! The day we tried it the flavor of the day was mint and chip ice cream wrapped in chocolate cake.
Frosted is located at 4817 East 2nd Street in Belmont Shore. Call them at (562) 987-1080.
