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?
