Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of baked goods and drinks at Cupcake Cutie Etc. in Bartlett.
Cupcake Cutie Etc.’s staff bake cupcakes strewn with toppings and full-size cakes frosted with care, and invite customers to craft their own edible masterpieces at its custom cupcake bar. Patrons can build cakes packed with one of six flavors (such as butter, chocolate, or red velvet) and frosted with buttercream, chocolate, or cream cheese, discovering the most festive configuration to celebrate a child's birthday or their lawyer's piano recital. Cupcakes ranging from standard ($1.65+) to jumbo size ($3.50+) will fill any shape of cupcake hole that doctors find in your x-rays, and arrive covered with any of 31 toppings or with sprinkles that, like kazoo concerts, are always provided free at Cupcake Cutie Etc. The store's interior beckons to frosting hounds with chocolate walls spotted with pink dots, and highlights its collection of old-fashioned candy bins filled with sweets and nuts.
Cupcake Cutie Etc.
The bakers at Cupcake Cutie Etc. whip up fresh batches of cupcakes throughout the day, which customers can ornament in an ever-changing selection of icings, fillings, and toppings at the custom cupcake bar. Chocolate, red velvet, and lemon-flavored cupcakes emerge from the pan as fluffy as a cloud fresh from the dryer. The bakers lavish the cakes with choices of seven different icing flavors such as buttercream and caramel, then shake on free sprinkles and let guests choose from up to 31 toppings, including Cinnabon swirls, oreos, and almonds. Cupcakes may also harbor gooey fillings such as cream cheese and strawberries.
In addition to baking cupcakes, sculpted cakes, and tiered wedding cakes, bakers also make cake pops, which free hands to tie intricate sailor’s knots without depriving mouths of sugar. They also rent out their mocha-colored café for parties and special occasions.
