Carytown Cupcakes

Carytown Cupcakes' team of bakers, affectionately known as "Team Buttercream," handcrafts the shop's preservative-free treats from scratch daily. Proprietor Dawn Schick harnessed the epicurean skills she gained as a personal chef and caterer to open her own cupcake shop in 2009 and has been baking alongside her expert team ever since. Her permanent menu of classic cupcakes woos sweet teeth with the familiar, comforting flavors of red velvet, vanilla, and baby blanket. Meanwhile, her seasonal menus rotate weekly to include vegan and gluten-free selections that fit into themes ranging from wine country to candy bars. For those 21 and over, Carytown Cupcakes is now offering beer, wine, and prosecco.


The various weekly flavors are AWESOME. So good every time.

The shop itself is small but lovely, with a view into the well-maintained kitchen area where you can see your treats prepared
