Cupcakery Reviews

I love to travel. Every time I travel I am always on the look out for new cupcake bakeries to share my reviews with IHC readers. These are my own personal opinions and taste preference.

If you have a review to share, please email me!

Next time I am in your city I’ll try to stop by!

*** Frosted Cupcakery ***
195 Claremont Ave
Long Beach, CA 90803
562.987.1080

IHC REVIEW: T had a red velvet (no surprise) and I had a chocolate chocolate buttercream. T said his was good but not the best he’s ever had. Mine was good but a little dry. Maybe because we bought it towards the end of the day? Overall a cute store, owner is a sweet lady and the staff was very friendly.

*** Sprinkles Cupcakes ***
944 Avocado Ave
Newport Beach, CA 92660
949.760.0003

IHC REVIEW: I think everyone and their mama has heard of Sprinkles. I have to admit I was a little afraid that it wouldn’t live up to all its hype. At first glance they are pretty cupcakes. There is a huge pile of frosting on each one. I had a black and white and T had a red velvet. The b/w was very good, a little too much frosting for me though. T loved the red velvet but he even admits that for $3.75/cupcake, he prefers my homemade more. I think the cupcakes are overpriced but they are definitely delicious. If I could afford them like Heidi Klum, I’d probably go there more often.

*** Charmed Cupcakes ***
6422 E. Spring Street
Long Beach, CA 90815
562.425.2300

IHC Review: This is a new cupcakery that opened up near me. I talked to the owner and he said they’d only been open for 4 days! I was already impressed with their bright, open and adorable store but then I saw the cupcakes and swooned over the JUMBO size! I am always one for a deal and getting more for my money so that was a definite plus. I decided to try the strawberry milkshake cupcake (strawberry cupcake and cream cheese frosting). The cupcake itself was good but it didn’t taste like a strawberry milkshake to me. I’ll probably go back and try a classic vanilla and chocolate next and maybe my rating will change.

*** Georgetown Cupcakes ***
1209 Potomac Street NW
Washington, DC 20007
202.333.8448

IHC REVIEW: I love how quaint this little store was decorated. It had only 1 table but the small space had so much character. I think if I ever had my own cupcakery I’d want something close to this. I ordered a vanilla2 and T had a red velvet. I am a vanilla bean freak and this cupcake had an amazing vanilla flavor. T also enjoyed his red velvet too. Read more here.

*** Sarah’s Candies ***
111 N. State, St Level
Chicago, IL 60602
312.781.3004

IHC REVIEW: I tried the black&white cupcake. ohmygod. Best cupcake I’ve ever eaten. Moist with a great balance of “cake” and “frosting”. Both me and Nikki agree we wanted to go back for another one. Read more here.

*** Molly’s Cupcakes ***
2536 North Clark Street
Chicago, IL 60614
773.883.7220

IHC REVIEW:: I had a vanilla-chocolate w/ caramel. It was very good. I heard nothing but raves about the chocolate & PB, vanilla-vanilla and vanilla-chocolate from friends but I remember one taste-tester telling me that the red velvet cream cheese frosting was a little too cheesy for her tastes. Overall fun experience with friends! What more could you ask for? Read more here.

*** Cupcake Cafe *** (no website)
297 Rantoul Street
Beverly, MA 01915
978.922.9720

IHC REVIEW: I love caramel so the obvious cupcake choice to try was the turtle cupcake (chocolate cake, chocolate buttercream, caramel and pecans). These are not your average size cupcakes. These are JUMBOTRON cupcakes! At a price of $2.50 per cupcake you get alot for your money! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to eat my cupcake until 2 days later but even 2 days later hanging out in my frig it was still SO good. I can imagine if I had eaten right away it would even more amazing.

*** Sweet Cupcakes ***
49 Massachusetts Ave
Boston, MA 02115
617.247.CAKE

IHC REVIEW: I only got one flavor. Since I love vanilla beans, I got the “The Sweet Cake” (creamy madagascar vanilla bean cake with vanilla buttercream). I thought the cake was moist, love the vanilla bean specks and the frosting was amazing! I wish I could have gotten more than one!

*** Brown Betty Dessert Boutique ***
1030 N 2nd St
Philadelphia PA 19123
215.629.0999

IHC REVIEW: This cupcakery is run by sisters that name their cupcakes after women in their family. I love the concept of family and tradition. I had a raspberry filled sour cream cupcake and my friend had a lemon filled sour cream cupcake. We both raved the whole time. The “cake” was moist, the frosting was perfect and the filling was amazing! I also brought a red velvet cupcake back to the hotel for T and he liked the cake but LOVED the frosting! Read more here.

*** Flying Monkey Patisserie ***
51 North 12th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19107
215.928.0340

IHC Review: They didn’t have a huge selection at the time I bought my cupcake, late in the afternoon, so I decided on a chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream. The “cake” was good and the frosting was great. I wish I could have tried more of their fun flavors. Maybe next trip. Check out their cupcake menu! Read more here.

*** Velvet Sky Bakery ***
307 Leedom Street
Jenkintown, PA 19046
215.884.0254

IHC REVIEW: This cupcakery is located in an adorable town of Jenkintown. I love the adjacent shops and sense of community. The owner, Pete, was great and talked to me about his cupcakes, the area and blogging. I got a Chocolate Twist (chocolate cake w/ vanilla and chocolate twist buttercream). My “cake” was moist and the buttercream was sweet and sinful. Personally a little too sweet for me but if you have a sweet tooth you’ll love it! My friend got a Strawberry (vanilla cake w/ strawberry buttercream). The “cake” was a little dense for my taste but the buttercream was very good. Read more here.
