Cupcakes in Phoenix Area
I have tried Sprinkles in Scottsdale 4 times now, and each visit leaves me so disappointed. I am looking for a cupcake that is moist but not too sugary. Are there any places in the Phx area that can offer this? Maybe I should wait for this fad to die down, but cupcake cravings have been getting the best of me. Surely there are higher quality cupcakes out there, without the hoopla surrounding Sprinkles!
I felt the same way about Sprinkles and I was so excited when they finally opened. I really like Sugarlips Cakery on Alma School and Guadalupe in Mesa. http://www.sugarlipscakery.com/index.asp
They're $2 per cupcake, buy one get one free on Friday's and the cake is always moist. The pink champagne cupcake is my favorite.
When it comes to cupcakes in the Phoenix area, you have plenty of options that do not involve Sprinkles. People have already mentioned Wicked Bakery and Sugarlips. These places have great cupcakes. There is also Sweet Pea Bakery downtown at 3rd ave and Jackson in Phoenix. The cupcakes there are not overly sweet. There are also good cupcakes at TammyCoe Cakes at 7th St & Roosevelt in Phoenix, the cake is usually moist but the frosting can be very sweet. There are also good cupcakes at Copper Star Coffee at 7th ave above Indian School in Phoenix & Lulu's Cupcakes at Miller & McDowell in Scottsdale.
