Cupcakes. Cupcakes. Cupcakes.

26 Jan


I have an unhealthy obsession with cupcakes.  Not that I necessarily eat them all the time, but if I had to choose one cake-like dessert, the cupcake would be it.  I also have a strange fascination with all foods that are miniature and abnormally large – and cupcakes can fall into either of those categories.  I have been on the hunt for the best cupcakery in town and will offer you in this post my honest less than 20 word review on each that I have been to.

Grocery/Specialty Food Stores

  • Dorothy Lane Market – Home of the baby cakes.  Moist cake with rich icing.  Not a huge selection of flavors to choose from.
  • Walmart/Sam’s Club – Same company.  Buy in bulk or not.  Best whipped icing in town.  Great value for your money.
  • Kroger – If you need last minute cupcakes, go here.  Features mass-produced two-bite cupcakes.  Small selection at Marketplace or FreshFare locations.

Cake Bakeries

  • ele Cake Company – The obvious choice for South Dayton residents.  Delicious desserts in a fancy cafe setting. 
  • The Cakery –  Classic cakes and cupcakes.  Great service.  Decent selection and pricing.


  • Gigi’s Cupcakes – A cupcake variety lover’s paradise.  Creative and out-of-the-box decor on top, unthinkable flavor creations on the bottom.
  • Cake, Hope, & Love – The Social bakery.  Great for tech nerds.  Simple cupcake recipes but made with love.
  • Frost Cupcake Bar – Best themed cupcakes.  Great for the icing lover.  Also provides custom iced cupcakes daily.
  • Junebug’s Cupcakes – Best fun cupcakes in a variety of sizes.  All you need = Girl’s Night Out cupcake (on Fridays).

A couple other cupcakeries that I would like to mention are Sprinkles and Crumbs Bake Shop.  Both have locations across the US.  

What other yummy places have you tried out there?

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or
    something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a
    bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.
    An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
