From coast to coast, cupcakes are the desert of choice and now Houston has its own mini cake emporium. A pink and lime green addition to South Shepherd is Sugarbaby’s Cupcake Boutique.
When you enter the angelic haven designed for your sweet tooth, you will experience the warm aromas of freshly baked goods, confectioner’s sugar, and cocoa. Showcased are rows upon rows of theme-related boxed cookies, miniature gift items and tea sets. In addition to cupcakes, other bakery delights include lemon tarts, petite cheesecakes, and toffee crunch. Cupcake and miniature dessert selections change monthly.
You may take your indulgence home, or stay and enjoy it with a cup of Dean and Deluca coffee in their poodle pink cupcake-sized café. Or plan a party in their black and white “chandelier” special event room. Call ahead for orders larger than a dozen.
