I should mention I have a close friend who works at Kickass, so I've had the opportunity to try lots of the flavors she brings home. For example, their "basic" flavors - vanilla, chocolate, red velvet - are to die for. They use all-natural coloring and ingredients, so the cupcakes aren't as vibrant in appearance as at some other shops, but they're delicious. The cakes that I've tried are always moist, with a good cake-to-frosting ratio.
One of my favorites is their take on the 'Funfetti' cupcake - a vanilla cupcake with sprinkles baked in, and a vanilla buttercream frosting. Simple, but delicious!
This visit, I tried something new: their DEEP-FRIED CUPCAKE. Yes, you read that correctly. And yes, it was as awesome as it sounds.

There it is! So it's a vanilla cupcake, deep fried, then covered in chocolate fudge and homemade whipped cream. Oh my! I shared it with a friend, as it is a LOT of sweetness, but it was delicious. It reminded me of a very dense funnel cake. I can only imagine how good it would be with some fruit toppings as well.
Yep! Like I said - awesome. I really like Kickass Cupcakes - they have a unique spin on a lot of flavors, and try to use all natural and seasonal ingredients, which is great. There's also a dairy bar attached, which I haven't tried yet... and they're located next to When Pigs Fly Bakery, so you can overdose on carbs without having to walk more than 20 feet! Genius!
