Frostings Bake Shop
Don't be surprised if Matt Fraker looks familiar. The founder of Frostings Bake Shop made an appearance on The Food Network's Cupcake Wars, where his delectable treats took home a second-place finish. Luckily, fame hasn't gone to his cupcakes' heads—they're still just as sweet as ever, whipped up from scratch every day without preservatives. Gourmet flavors range from classic (chocolate, vanilla, red velvet) to down-right decadent (sticky bun, apple pie), and there are even several gluten-free options so that guests with dietary sensitivities can still get their sweets fix.
