Joanne and Edwin Medina used to drive more than 30 minutes to eat cupcakes from Baked in a Cup in Ramsey. 

This week, the Verona couple introduced their favorite cupcakes to Essex County, opening the second Baked in a Cup location at 549 Pompton Ave. in Cedar Grove. 

Here are a (baker's) dozen things you need to know about the bakery that says, "You've tasted the rest, now come taste the best."

2. They are known for their ultra-light, swiss butter creme frosting.

3. More than 30 varieties are available each season, with featured flavors changing throughout the week. 

4. Cupcakes are never on the racks for more than two days, so if you are eating one chances are it was baked that morning. 

5. Red Velvet is one of their most popular flavors. 

6. Arabica created a signature Red Velvet coffee for Baked in a Cup. 

7. Holiday flavors include eggnog, candy cane, s'mores and gingerbread.
