Considering cupcakes for your wedding or event instead of a traditional tiered cake? With so many delicious cupcakes out there it’s not easy to choose where to get them from, so we’ve compiled a list of our favorite local Austin bakeries. These bakeries will easily make large orders for your event or party – all with a wide selection for your guests.
1) Sugar Mama’s
The cupcake filling here was an unexpected delight – but the cute SoCo location and décor should have given away that something good was in store!
2) Blackbird Bakery
They do gluten-free better cupcakes better than anyone has before. You can find them each Saturday at the SFC Farmers’ Market – Downtown Austin, and they can also cater your next event.
3) Hey Cupcake!
Starting out in a food truck then opening several new stores, these guys have locations all around Austin so you never have to go far for your next cupcake fix. They even have minis if you want to cut your calories in half.
4) Sweetish Hill Bakery
An Austin classic right on West Sixth Street, this bakery does more than cupcakes. But we keep going back for the hand-made buttercream icing.
5) Upper Crust
Another Austin original to satisfy your sweet tooth with traditional Carrot and Italian Cream, but how can you say “no” to Chocolate Peanut Butter with ganache?
We’ve enjoyed getting to taste these delicious treats and hope you too will explore the list and let us know if you have any recommendations for your favorite cupcake bakeries!
