What Are Some Popular Flavours For Street Cupcakes?

Some popular flavors for street cupcakes include classic vanilla and chocolate, as well as more unique flavors like red velvet, lemon, and lavender. 

Many street cupcake vendors also offer seasonal flavors, such as pumpkin spice or peppermint.

How Should I Store Street Cupcakes?
