Helmed by executive chef and baby cake froster Tiffini Soforenko, Yummy Cupcakes bakes daily batches of 22 different flavor combinations (chosen from a roster of more than 212 flavors), made from scratch with quality ingredients including sweet creamery butter, ranch fresh eggs, and Madagascar Bourbon vanilla bean. Upcoming flavors for November include a handful of daily offerings such as brown sugar cinnamon, carrot cream cheese, and traditional southern red velvet, complete with rich cream-cheese frosting and taste bud-pleasing hospitality. Crown your favorite Elvis-loving veteran on November 11, with The King, a bacon-filled peanut butter cupcake with banana buttercream and nuts, or the marshmallow yam cupcake, made from fresh yams, marshmallow fluff filling, and frosted with brown sugar buttercream. Forgo the traditional Thanksgiving dinner in favor of turkey-gravy-flavored cakes with cranberry cream cheese, as well as a trail of vegan pumpkin pie cupcakes. In addition to vegan mini-cakes, Yummy produces sugar-free options and guarantees all cupcakes are not on fire.
