I went to go visit Cupcakes on Denham Street in Vancouver BC. The store did not disappoint. It was bright, happy and colorful. The line of cupcake devotees was almost out the door. The cupcake and cake offerings were creative, colorful and displayed attractively.
They had cute Cupcake-branded hang tags and stickers that were available for purchase, encouraging easy gift giving and helping to further the Cupcakes brand aesthetic.
A 4-pack went for $10. Single cupcakes were $2.50
There were mountains of cupcakes. I devoured a Red Velvet cupcake. It was mushy, yummy, and practically melted in my mouth.
Carried away by the sugar high, I asked for a “I (heart) Cupcakes” t-shirt. The bill for one cupcake plus the t-shirt came to $38. It was one expensive t-shirt. Note to self: check pricing before buying.
If you are ever in Vancouver BC, it’s worth a trip down to Denham street to grab a cupcake (or four) and stroll along the beautiful waterfront, just a few blocks away.
I would love to go see Magnolia Bakery; I’ve heard so many gushing reviews of the place! =)
I, too, love cupcakes. I’ve had the pleasure of having a cupcake in NY from the Magnolia Bakery.
I have not sought out any cupcake bakery stores here in the Dallas, TX area, but I’m sure they’re out there and much less famous.
I went through a phase where I made my own with Bailey’s Irish Cream frosting, but it’s nice to have one without all the work!
