Cups provide containment for life-sustaining water, protect the tender nether regions, and allow eavesdropping through walls. Combine these benefits with the scrumptiousness of cake with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of cupcakes at any of Cupcake Craving's three Sacramento-area locations.
With owners dedicated to sustainability and good baking, Cupcake Craving has garnered a loyal following of sweet teeth since opening its doors in 2007—including a 2008 nod for Best Cupcake from Sacramento magazine and inclusion in the list of Top Five Best Desserts from CityVoters. Get your sugar fix with the 24K craving ($2.50) or mint meltdown ($2.50), which are baked fresh daily alongside more than 20 other flavors. Indecisive party planners can mix and match flavors in a craver's dozen ($27.50), get a dozen mini gourmet cupcakes ($15) or work with an on-site cakeologist to create a personalized and very meta cupcake cake (call for a quote) for any occasion.
Cupcake Craving is the brainchild of three friends who wanted to create a business that would reinforce their friendship and ties to the community. As a result, their cupcakes are packed with stabilizing flavor crystals that generate unity and togetherness, bringing us closer to world peace with every butter-cream-covered bite.
Run by a duo of longtime friends with a mutual love for baking, Cupcake Craving rocketed to popularity from its modest beginnings—within a year of the first store’s grand opening, Sacramento Magazine awarded it the Diners’ Choice Award for the area’s best cupcake. Since then, the bakery has become a mainstay on CityVoters and KCRA 3's top-five dessert lists, and its handcrafted creations continue to earn new fans. Artful swirls of buttercream or cream-cheese frosting top the bakery’s diminutive cupcakes, which come in more than 20 traditional and signature flavors. The bakery can also handle orders for large parties and special occasions; an on-site artist designs custom cupcake cakes with special flavors and decorations to celebrate birthdays and welcome new gallons of milk into the home.
