Cowgirl Cupcake Co. & General Store
Tracy Rice has a lot of words for her gourmet cupcakes: whimsical, elegant, rustic, high-end. She isn't wrong, but these one-of-a-kind treats fall under the umbrella of Cowgirl's most defining aspect: its creativity. It hasn't gone unnoticed, either.
Cowgirl's creations have wowed audiences of CMT and Food Network, and are regularly consumed by celebrities such as Miranda Lambert and Bret Michaels. Small batches emerge from ovens every day, with 27 unique flavors donning top hats of frosting made of rich vanilla-bean buttercream, vanilla-bourbon custard, and chocolate-espresso ganache.
Some treats crown themselves in signature garnishes, such as golden Buddhas on cupcakes, colorful flags that billow above moon pies, and cloaks of chocolate that cover Oreos. Cowgirl's confectionary artists can also create custom sugar work to celebrate occasions such as birthdays, weddings, and a baby's first thumbs-up.
