Does Pasadena really need 50 cupcake shops? Will one more really matter? Well, in this case, Polkatots it does. Located far from the trendy part of Pasadena's Old Town and South Lake shopping area. Polkatots is north of the 210 hidden in the back of a little mini mall.

Pokatots features many different flavors and designs, like most cupcake shops. Their flavors are good. Their cupcakes are moist. But 2 things set them apart, their mini cupcakes and their custom designed cupcakes.

The mini cupcakes are just right in my opinion. I don't necessarily like a hugh cupcake with lots of frosting. But the mini ones - for just a couple of bites is perfect. Plus, they're priced reasonably - at $1.50. Mini's let me try lots of different flavors. This day, I tried the Choco Lover, the Dolcissimo, the green Pistachio, and Strawberry Shortcake. My favorite is the Choco Lover, strange since I am not a Chocolate craver. I also liked the Dolcissimo - though my friend didn't like that much. The Dolcissimo -Dulce de Leche Cupcake with Dulce de Leche Buttercream, is their pride and joy cupcake.

You can see from their website the different custom made cupcakes. You can see the different designs. They take pride in their cupcakes.

Too bad they are located in a high traffic area with more exposure.

Facebook and Twitter Cupcakes. . . Very nicely done. Custom designed. . . could say its artsy.

Nice display with Candy tree. They carry everything on their menu with monthly specialties.

The nice packaging with sticker. This small clear box package fits 4 mini cupcakes nicely.

Look how cute these are.

Not usually a big fan of chocolate, this particular one - the Choco Lover was really good and moist.
