The Joy of Cupcakes!



Jul 19th, 2014


When it comes to cupcakes most everyone can agree that they are delicious and perfect for any gathering. And if you have a variety of flavors you’re sure to please just about everyone. The controversy comes in when you start asking HOW people eat their cupcakes. My personal favorite is the sandwich method. Carefully remove the bottom of the cupcake and place it on top of the frosting. Now with every bite you have an equal amount of cake to frosting. A must for truly enjoying a cupcake (and less mess)!

How do you eat cupcakes? Sandwich method, from the top down, one (or two) big bites or frosting first? Or do you have a method we haven’t mentioned? If so, please share! We’re sharing some of our favorite cupcake recipes below. All are equally mouth-watering, but it will depend on your mood which recipe you decide to try first!

Looking for someone to do the hard work for you? Whether it’s a holiday, you need a special theme or just looking for a classic decoration, we can meet your every request! Check out what we have or visit our bakery today with your special request! Your wish is our command!

Vanilla with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Everyone needs a classic vanilla cupcake recipe as their go-to. The best part about this recipe is that you can jazz it up by adding anything you want to the mix or frosting — think sprinkles, coconut…the possibilities are endless. Get the pinned recipe here.


Blueberry with Honey Buttercream Frosting

    How can I order a cake or cupcakes for my
    daughter’s baby shower on-line or over the phone?

      Hello, Kristy. You can order online by going to and by clicking on the “Order Cakes and Deli Trays” tab you will be taken to the online ordering system. If you do not see the cupcakes you want online, you can always call the store or go into the store and order there. Let us know if you have any further questions. ~Stephanie

    Hi if I want to order some cupcakes how many days in advance do I have to put the order in? And if I the cupcakes formed into a bow tie can you do it?

    • Customer Care 20/08/2015 at 4:26 pm

      Great questions, Monica. For cake orders, we recommend a minimum of 24 hours advance notice. I would recommend contacting your local Albertsons to see if they can make those bow tie cupcakes. ~Jennifer

    can you make a rainbow cake with cream cheese frosting?

  6. Quiqui 07/12/2016 at 9:33 pm

    I hope the cupcakes are good. My parents are buying some to give to the kids at my school and in the past the frosting has tasted really bad so I hope, just hope that I have a miracle and they aren’t totally gross.

      Quiqui, which location did you happen to visit? We’d like to share your concerns with the Store Director to review with the Bakery Team. -Julio, Customer Support
