Have you had your daily prayer? If not, there are far worse ways to worship than licking the chocolate frosting off a devil’s food cupcake. Denver’s own Church of Cupcakes invites all supplicants to visit its downtown location, where owner Porche is a true believer in organic, eco-friendly and locally sourced ingredients and packaging. The shop, with its 1950s decor and liberal use of glitter, has a retro feel but a completely irreverent attitude, resulting in such treats as the “Missionary” vanilla cupcake. Others include the “Venerable Velvet,” the “Sprinkle Salvation” and the “Bee-titude” version, the latter of which sports a honey-buttercream icing good enough to make any choir sing its praises. Gluten-free “St. Celiac” cupcakes are also among the offerings at this Church.
