When the old sweet tooth kicks in, these places are ready to fill that craving. With delicious, unique flavors, great locations, and more than satisfactory treats, these locations have set the standard for cupcakes when it comes to taste and appearance.
Cupcakes here are just as sweet and pure as the store’s name. Located in downtown San Diego, right in the middle of offices and nightclubs, Heavenly offers a wide variety of delicious, cake-based sweets, including cake pops, cupcakes, cakes, and their designer collection. The designer collections are The Holiday Collection and Anytime Collection, which both offer a ton of selections. Their best-kept secret has to be Thin Mint. Normally one will wait for the Girl Scouts to bring these classic cookies out, but not in San Diego. Heavenly’s cupcake version includes actual pieces of Thin Mints whipped into the batter, and is topped with one as well.
Frost Me gives you a taste of the Food Network, because they were actually contestants on Cupcake Wars on two different seasons. Anyone left with a craving after watching the show can have a taste of the delicious treats they have to offer. Popular for their unique but delicious taste, the Red Velvet cupcake is one of their top-selling treats, along with the double chocolate ganache. The chocolate ganache has a little surprise to it: a tiny bit of salt – a must try.
Don’t let the name fool you; Baby Cakes has enough delicious treats to satisfy any size sweet tooth. Located downtown, this cupcake spot also offers lunch, dinner, and brunch. The hazelnut cupcake gives sweet satisfaction to anyone who enjoys Nutella. Other available delicious flavors include Sprinkle and their signature Marble Cake with Chocolate Chips & Cream Cheese. They offer plenty of other yummy flavors, along with drinks. In short, Baby Cakes is a great place to grab dinner, drinks, and dessert all at once.
