Cupcakes by Heather and Lori

Heather and Lori were two childhood friends working in NYC when 9/11 struck. Faced with the realisation that life is indeed too short, they decided to follow their dreams and open a bakery. Cupcakes was born.

Many years later, Lori and Heather are still good friends, and Cupcakes has expanded into a sweet, sweet empire. Cupcakes caters orders large and small. everything from a sweet treat to elaborate wedding cakes. I bought birthday cakes from here and I love their cupcakes!

The cupcakes come in three sizes: minis, regular and the big one. My favourites are:

Blue Hawaii – coconut cake with vanilla buttercream icing and sprinkled with coconut.

Lemon Drop – Lemon cake with lemon buttercream icing topped with a lemon wedge candy –  this one is so good! Nice and tart.

Caramella – Chocolate cake filled with caramel and buttercream icing topped with pralines –  I love biting into this cupcake as all the gooey caramel comes out. A real treat.

Red Velvet – red cocoa cake with cream cheese icing and dusted with white sugar – I love this cupcake, the cream cheese icing is so good!

When it comes to their cakes, their menu is fully customized to meet your needs! There’s a fun “build your own cake” feature on their website where you can make your dream cake in no time, and there’s no nasty surprises  –  this feature will tell you how much your cake will cost before you spend a dime.
