This Chicago-based bakery offers a unique two-toned frosting experience on its cupcakes, topped off with attention-grabbing garnishes such as the white chocolate cinnamon bark. Although you're welcome to go after Swirlz's cinnamon honey bun cupcake just for that topping, consider the Twixie, inspired by its namesake: a decadent chocolate cake with a homemade chocolate covered shortbread cookie, salted caramel buttercream, and a caramel drizzle. The best part? Most of Swirlz's cupcakes are vegan, and all are gluten-free — but you wouldn't know it. — Marilyn He, 11/8/2012
