Kupcakes etc.’s troupe of crafty bakers whips up homemade, finely decorated batches of traditional and unique handheld treats. Within their pink and sea-foam-green sweets emporium, the cupcake connoisseurs use fresh ingredients to bake each decadent morsel from scratch before festooning them with garnishes, lining them into boxes, and enabling their detonation devices. With a rotating lineup of flavors, the bakery keeps taste buds guessing with classic staples such as chocolate with vanilla buttercream and silky red velvet, as well as more imaginative flavors such as ice-cream sundae, cookies ‘n’ cream, and pecan praline. Ornately decorated models that look like spaghetti and meatballs or corn on the cob trick customers into expecting something sweet to be meaty, much like a Christmas movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The decor of the Kupcakes Etc., with its alternating lines of dark and light lime green, brings to mind the crinkled ridges and grooves of a cupcake wrapper, perhaps putting visitors in the mood to select from the menu's 20 cake and frosting flavors. Strawberry-shortcake, lemon-meringue, and red velvet cupcakes can be consumed in one of four sizes, ranging from bite-size minis to gigantic cakes that feed up to 10 people. Cakes can be decorated with chocolate candies and multicolored sprinkles, which sends out a festive vibe—much like hitting a piñata with a folded Ouija board does.
