Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “Baker Andra Hall named her bakery — which started in Jacksonville and now has three locations, including Atlanta — after her adorable daughter Camille. Hers are certainly the prettiest of any in Atlanta, made with butter, sugar, spice and all things nice.”

Best Bakery In the South

The best Cupcakes in Metro Atlanta are at Incredible Southern Poundcakes in Stockbridge. Yes they do more than pound cakes. They simply are the best. They bake pound cake cupcakes like no other. They also offer traditional cupcakes as well. They have over 20 different flavors and frostings to chose from. My family loves them all. Always fresh and the taste and presentation is second to none. They bake the famous Rich’s Coconut Cake, something many of us had thought had gone away. I think their version is even better than I remember growing up as a kid in Atlanta.

Everyone in Stockbridge and South of the Airport knows where to go to get the best baked goodies, Incredible Southern Poundcakes. And they ship all over the country. I think they are opening another store in October at Old Towne Morrow at Southlake. They must be doing something right if they are opening another location in this economy. There website is http://www.southernpoundcakes.com

Fit and I love cupcakes!

One of the best kept secrets in Atlanta….Sassy Girl Pies. Check out the website http://www.sassygirlpies.com. The fresh straweberry was my favorite until I tried the next flavor. It is love at first bite….She has a way of making you like every flavor. I promise you she is guaranteed to be the best. Sassy Girl has no limits. I would suggest that you order the assortment of cupcakes then you can have all of your favorites for the office meeting.

Cafe Aroma in Lawrenceville! The cupcakes are made fresh. They are huge, so one is a major diet killer, but WTH! These cupcakes lean more toward the frosting lovers out there — rich, buttercream frosting (the chocolate is to die for). They have several choices: Vanilla Buttercream, Chocolate Buttercream, Red Velvet, Orange Creamsicle, German Chocolate, Lemon Raspberry, and others. They are huge and cost only 2.25 per cupcake. Of course, you will have to spend 20.00 on gas to get there if you are coming from the Midtown, Buckhead or Downtown. They also have wonderful gooey butter cake.

Shel’les Insatiable Delights, hands down! She is a private baker and makes everything by hand. She started out bringing baked goods to her colleagues at Zurich, and it had mushroomed into a nice business for any occasion. Her cupcakes range from the standard to the extreme, pudding-filled delights that are to die for! We needed some for a school party and everyone wanted to get her name and number so that they could order on their own. My favorite is her strawberry cupcakes, and some are so good that they hardly even need frosting on the top.

Have you ever had a cupcake that had you thinking about it weeks later after eating it. Have you ever had a cupcake filled with real creamcheese frosting. Or how about this….Have you ever found yourself swinging your legs and speaking in tongues after you just got through licking your fingers from eating a cupcake. Yes people this is what I am talking about….it’s texture, moistness, filling ..- hell the paper! (I have eaten the paper) Is the BEST!!! http://www.sassygirlpies.com You be the judge!

We tasted cupcakes from five different upscale bakeries as a part of an annual spring food tasting contest last year – Atlanta Cupcake Factory was the hands down winner in this head-to-head competition. Every cupcake tastes good when you eat it alone, but trying them side by side really showed how good the ones from Atlanta Cupcake Factory were. http://www.theatlantacupcakefactory.com

Buttersweet Bakery in Hapeville has the BEST cupcakes. They’re very reasonably priced, too. You can taste the butter and homemade goodness. They’re moist, and the icing is tasty, tasty. Charlita Varner is a gourmet chef who takes pride in her treats. You can taste the love!

The best cupcake, hands down, is My Sweet Cakery. It’s catering company that specializes in sweet treats; I have had them do a lot of deserts and gift baskets for my corporate events. They are amazing. Great variety of flavors, moist, and well decorated.

I have tried all the other so called Cupcake bakeries and they are all dry and too sweet. My Sweet Cakery in Johns Creek has the most amazing cupcakes I have tried! And everything is pretty and not to Sweet! Take it from me, I know my cupcakes! The Smores cupcake is by far my favorite!

Combine an old-fashioned poundcake recipe with buttercream or cream cheese frosting and you have a great cupcake at Incredible Southern Poundcakes bakery in Stockbridge. They are the best! Grandma would be proud! http://www.southernpoundcakes.com

1st. Piece of Cake: I can live without the decorations, it’s all about the great taste! I get my birthday cakes from there and I love the seasonal flavors that they have. And the best part, there are numerous locations.
2nd. Chocolate Pink: It’s the place where you go if your giving yourself a “special treat” The cupcakes are good, but I think the whole atmosphere of Chocolate Pink is what most people go for.

Matty Cakes & Whole Foods are also great.

The best cup cakes in Atlanta are at my dad’s house. You ain’t had a cupcake until you’ve had a BBQ cupcake. He whips his vinegar based sauce up into a tizzy to make just the most delicious icing you’ve ever had.

I wonder if AJC could figure out a way to make these honest polls instead of just companies advertising. I have just about given up looking at these because it is so obvious you are just reading advertisments for some businesses.

To be honest, the best cupcakes are those that I make with my two year old daughter. She gets to do all the fun stuff like craking eggs, shifting flower and pouring it all in the bowl. The look on her face when she gets to lick a beater is priceless.

Cupcakes used to be a “treat” made with mom. Let’s get back to that in our own homes a bit more shall we.

If I do have to purchase any cakes or cupcakes, Piece of Cake is where I always go. Even if I do gain a pound eating on small slice. :-0

All Yours, cupcakes by Karen Freeman. You have never had cupcakes like these. The fluffiness of her cream cheese frosting, the original flavors, the beautiful packaging. She has every area covered. We got the Mega Key Lime Cupcake (It is enough to feed 8 people) and the Brownie, Chocolate Chip Cookie cupcakes and they were out of this world. Thanks All Yours!
