It's National Cupcake Day: Ten Cupcake Bakeries That Will Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
|Fluff Bake Bar puts their twist on the cupcake by making the cup|cake.|
3. Fluff Bake Bar
While the classic cupcake is all well and good, Fluff Bake Bar thinks it's time for something different; welcome, the cup|cake. Rather than a thick portion of cake topped with frosting, Fluff Bake Bar has stuffed layers of cake and frosting into a cupcake-sized plastic cup, inviting you to shove your spoon or fork down to the bottom to scoop out all of the delightfully sweet and moist layers. These cup|cakes are uberly sweet, and trust me, you probably want to split one with someone (no shame if you don't). For a twist on a classic, try Fluff's Red Velvet cup|cake; it's a cross between red velvet and black forest. Super sweet cream cheese frosting, cherry jam and chocolate pearls are nestled between layers of moist and luscious red velvet cake. The Birthday Cake is also a delightful, yet very sweet, treat; you can't go wrong with funfetti cake, vanilla buttercream frosting and cake crumbs dispersed throughout the frosting. Head on over to Revival Market, Inversion Coffee House, Southside Espresso, Max's Wine Dive or Eatsie Boys for one of Fluff Bake Bar's cup|cakes.
2. Sprinkles Cupcakes
The simplicity in the design and recipe for these cupcakes makes the cupcakes at Sprinkles Cupcakes some of the best around town. Sprinkles doesn't need to go crazy on the decorations, or go over the top with crazy ingredients and flavors in the cake and frosting; I love how each cupcake is so simple, yet so delicious. Whether you're in the mood for something chocolaty and sweet, like the Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate or Peanut Butter Chocolate, or want something a little lighter like the Lemon, Orange or Banana, Sprinkles has got the hook up. The frosting is creamy and sweet, the cake is moist and luscious and the combination of the two is everything you're looking for in a cupcake. You can't go wrong with a classic. Oh and the little wooden spoon that comes with each cupcake may prolong the time you spend eating the cupcake, but who wants a sweet treat to end, anyway?
You can't go wrong with a CRAVE cupcake.
1. CRAVE Cupcakes
To celebrate National Cupcake Day, what better place to visit than the Houston-based cupcake bakery that has won over our hearts and taste buds? While many times too much frosting can be overly sweet and a turn-off for customers, the frosting on these large cupcakes is super addicting. Whether you want a cleanly frosted cupcake, or one coated in sprinkles, CRAVE has you covered. I love the simple chocolate with vanilla frosting; it satisfies every sweet craving of mine. CRAVE now offers gluten-free, vegan and sugar-free cupcakes, so there really is something for everyone.
