Cupcakes are a fantastic treat and very popular right now.  It might have something to do with the fact that they’re a (relatively) healthy alternative to a lot of desserts because they’re smaller  or it could just be that they’re incredibly tasty.  Either way, we’re lucky to live in Baltimore because there are a lot of wonderful places to get cupcakes nearby.

Puffs & Pastries

830 W. 36th Street
Baltimore, MD 21211

These cupcakes are occasionally in the store but typically only available by special order.  But with flavors like peanut butter and jelly, heirloom rose, and red velvet, it will be worth the trouble.  You can also buy cakes, tarts and cheesecakes.

    Herman’s Bakery has the best cupcakes, cakes and desserts in Baltimore!!! They have been a Baltimore tradition since 1923.

    Flavor Cupcakery in Bel Air should have made the list. I took a bite out of the chocolate/peanut butter cupcake and told my husband that was the BEST thing I have ever eaten. I’ll be swinging by there today for another.

    I agree, The Ooh La La Cupcakery is awesome. It definitely caters to the adult palette, not too sweet just right!!! The red velvet is to die for. I place three orders since January!!

    I love Iced Gems. They have a wonderful storefront in Reisterstown as well as an appropriately decorated truck that can be found throughout Baltimore ! I have tried six different flavors of cupcakes and they have all been very good. Friend them on Facebook to see what creations that have come up with for upcoming holidays and events.
