Before clumsy butter churners accidentally invented frosting, cupcakes were typically topped with cinnamon-raisin bagels, edible Belgian flags, or subpoenas to a cookie-jar-theft trial. Savor pastries topped with something other than a governmental writ with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a half-dozen cupcakes (up to a $21 value) at Gigi's Cupcakes' East Flamingo Road location.
The cupcake selection at Gigi's upgrades handmade sweets to gallery status with swirling frostings made from farm-fresh butter, well-placed fruit and nut selections, and decadent chocolate sauces that look inviting enough to swim in. Vanilla and cinnamon sourced from Madagascar and Saigon add a touch of worldliness to Gigi's fresh-made sweets. On a breezy spring day, fortunate tongues can take a trip to Texas milk chocolate minicakes, topped with creamy milk-chocolate frosting, drizzled with chocolate sprinkles, and accented with a yellow fondant star ($3.50 each), or stay forever attached to a wedding cake treat by ordering a white cupcake topped with vanilla buttercream and nonpareils. Gigi's refreshing seasonal choices also include cherry limeade cupcakes topped with lime frosting, sugar crystals, and a functional straw ($3 each), perfect for those who like their cherry limeade extra pulpy.

Gleaning her baking skills from her mother and grandmother, Gigi's Cupcakes' eponymous owner and founder opened her first cupcake hub in 2008, drawing upon her entrepreneurial spirit and gift for crafting beautifully topped cupcakes. The franchised cupcakery now has 80 locations, each of which churns out flavors that rotate daily and are made fresh every morning. The shop's selection of more than 30 flavors includes wedding cake, Scarlett’s red velvet, and Miss Princess. 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.
