In search for a good cup cake in Geneva

Hello I have been watching CNN, the only half decent english speaking channel on swiss TV (and it barely half decent) And they have featured this new cup cake vending machine coming out in America. Now I have this incredible craving for a nice whipped frosted cup cake. Does anyone know of a good place in Geneva where I can get my hands on one (a week)

Is it just me or does the cupcake in the OP's post look like something else?

Re: In search for a good cup cake in Geneva

There's a dedicated cupcake tea-room in Carouge, Rue Saint Victor ~#30, opposite the Bio Cinema.
And I've seen a bakers about half-way between the Rond-point de Plainpalais and Place Neuf that seems to sell New York cheesecake and so on, I expect they'll sell them too.

Bound to be others around.....

The one near Plainpalais is just by the traffic-lights near the corner of UNI Dufour and the Parc des Bastions, it's quite small so keep your eyes peeled!
