These bakers have mastered a muffin-moist cake with a just-right distribution of frosting. Judges loved the chai latte (gingery!) and lemon coconut (tangy-sweet!).

PRICE: $39 per dozen (the minimum order for delivery), plus $25 (and up) for delivery.
DELIVERY: The cupcakes, packed in a secure box, are available for pickup and delivery in 10 cites, including Chicago, New York, and Houston.
DON'T MISS: The red velvet (shown), for its nuanced blend of spongy chocolate and vanilla cake and its cream-cheese frosting, a happy marriage of sweet and tart.
