At Gigi’s Cupcakes, dedicated bakers whip up the artistic creations that populate a rotating, seasonal menu of decadent desserts made with fresh ingridients. Moist delicacies congregate in groups of six or twelve, the perfect number for a dinner gathering or holiday gift for Brady Bunch impersonators, and flavors range from boutique takes on classics, including Scarlett red velvet and carrot cake, to inventive originals such as ganache-dipped Hunka Chunka Banana Love or bacon-topped canadian maple. Gigi’s confectioners fight cupcake fatigue by unveiling new flavors regularly and maintaining a vast selection of almost 40 varieties that, like a con artist’s birthday, changes daily.
Gleaning her baking skills from her mother and grandmother, Gigi's Cupcakes' eponymous owner opened her first cupcake hub in 2008, drawing upon her entrepreneurial spirit and gift for crafting beautifully topped cupcakes. The franchised cupcakery now has 50 locations, each of which churns out 11 daily-rotating flavors that are made fresh every morning. The shop's selection of more than 40 flavors includes Canadian Maple, Southern Comfort, and Champagne—a bubbly-flavored base topped with an edible pearl. Patrons can pick out sweet treats from the daily selection or preorder them at least one day in advance online, by phone, or via singing telegram.
