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 sample its sinful treats; owner Porche Lovely is a true believer in organic, eco-friendly and locally sourced ingredients and packaging. The bakery's irreverent attitude results in such treats as the “Missionary” vanilla cupcake, the “Venerable Velvet,” the “Sprinkle Salvation” and the “Bee-titude,” which sports a honey-buttercream frosting good enough to make any choir sing its praises. Gluten-free “St. Celiac” cupcakes are also among the offerings at this Church, which offers delivery service in a vintage VW van. You can book the van for weddings and other events or call in an order for pickup. Say "Amen!"
