Crave Cupcakes....oh my!

Crave Cupcakes has got to be one of the most beautifully photographed cupcake sites!  I just about FELL OFF MY CHAIR when I saw it!  The smoothness of the butter cream frosting, the texture of the sprinkles, it's like I can already taste them!  It's a real shame we don't have a good home-made cupcake shop out here in Las Vegas!  

Well, there is one I know of, but it's not anything like these. Crave Cupcakes is based out of Houston , Texas...too bad for me.  So, if you're in Texas & you're looking for a baked fresh daily cupcake place, this is the place to go.  Oh, & can you believe these flavors??  chocolate espresso, chocolate coconut, red velvet, gingerbread, Nutella, mint chocolate, peanut butter chocolate, pumpkin & more!

Do you have a cupcake shop in your town? If so, which one?

  4. Those cupcakes look absolutely scrumptious!!! Such smooth frosting!! There is a cute cupcake shop over here in Western Australia close to some markets I like to go to - whenever I'm out that way, my husband always asks for me to pick up some of their beautifully decorated cakes. The best bit is always the frosting :) Enjoy your weekend Jen x

  5. oooh, yum! I luurve cakey things! A new cupcake shop recently opened in Canberra and there was a bit of initial excitement about their fun flavours - and a cupcake cafe - fun! So of course I had to check it out with my kids. The cupcakes were a.w.e.f.u.l even the kids didn't eat them!!! Dry and tasteless... boo.
    These Crave cupcakes look divine, wish I could give them a try.

  14. The store design is fab! It almost feels like you're buying jewelry, but instead of a lovely accessory, you're delighting in a cute little treat instead!

  15. As a Houstonian, I know how good Crave is. You can even get an old-fashioned bottle of milk to wash down the cake with. Not only aesthetically pleasing, but super-yummy.

  16. I wish I had a cupcake store in my town!!! I love cupcakes!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yup, we've got a few... Sprinkles and an individual one, "Sweet Lorraine's, where they have kiddy parties and make your own cupcakes.

    Have a nice weekend!

  20. We have so many wonderful cupcake shops in DC - a few of my favorite being Baked & Wired, Georgetown Cupcake, and Hello Cupcake.

    All the stores have pretty cheeky designs and I am so glad to see a posting sharing the interior of a store that I won't have a chance to visit!

    Great post.

  23. Crave cupcake looks amazing! In Saint Louis, MO we have two cupcake shops:

    Jilly's Cupcake Bar. http://jillyscupcakebar.com/

    The Cupcakery. http://www.cravethecup.com/ has to be my favorite hands down. Their cupcakes are so good. I bought a half dozen of a variety to share on a Girl's Night In and they were so yummy. My favorites had to be the confetti and the red velvet.

  24. We've got a few Kara's Cupcakes here in Northern California (in San Francisco, Napa, San Jose, and Palo Alto). I've been to the one in SF and the Meyer Lemony Lemon was actually my fave (over the chocolate one even!). Yum!

  28. I agree...Vegas needs a good cupcake bakery! Everyone raves about the Cupcakery, but I'm just not a big fan of theirs.

    We came so close to getting a Sprinkles at Planet Hollywood. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it is just postponed and not cancelled.
