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.”

CAFE’ AROMAS IN LAWRENCEVILLE!!! They have the BEST cupcakes. They are reasonably priced at $2.00-$2.35. They have all different flavors. This cafe’ is so quaint. It is family owned and operated and they are wonderful to work with for wedding cakes, cupcakes, chocolate strawberries,etc. Oh and they also have a great food menu for lunch. I like to go have lunch and then a cupcake for dessert. My favorite is the strawberry. YUMMY – I get six at a time to take home for my family. (Chocolate, Red Velvet, Strawberry, German Chocolate, Peanut Butter/Chocolate). I think I am going to have to go today…just talking about them makes my mouth water!!!

I love Caryn’s Cakes – there is a banana cream pie cup cake that is so yummy… I want to try the others, but that one is so good, I keep coming back for it. They normally make cakes for weddings and parties, but she sells cupcakes at her storefront – on Marietta Rd.

The best cupcakes in Atlanta are red velvet cupcakes with whipped icing from a private baker…Cakes, Etc.

Buttersweet Bakery N. Central Ave, has the BEST cupcakes ever. The Key Lime and Red Velvet are to die for. They make the experience at a Chastain concert one more layer of enjoyable. I was shocked they were so moist the next evening at the park. Stop by and try the many flavors of cupcakes they offer. Well worth the trip.

The BEST cupcakes in the Atlanta area are at Holly’s Cupcake Shop in Conyers. I have been to several of the others and by far these are the best in town.

The biggest secret is: SWEET ‘N’ SINFUL in Avondale Estates on College Ave. (East of Decatur).
OMG, these are decadent little morsels of goodness! They have the standard flavors plus varying creative concoctions, depending on seasons, and the chef’s creativity. I think the bulk of their business is wedding cakes, but we are talking serious skilled pastry chefs here, and the cupcakes are a great way to get a taste of their talent in a smaller package (or a few small packages — who can eat just one?) http://www.sweetnsinful.com

I agree. The Atlanta Cupcake Factory is a dream come true. The shop is small and quaint and the cakes are simple, but they are delicious. I’ve tried all the other places and they just don’t compare.

CamiCakes are sickeningly sweet, bordering on cloying, as are most of the cupcakes at other places. Chocolate Pink is probably the best of the lot.

No doubt, though, the over-sweetened goo is popular with the oversized society we have these days.

I love Piece of Cake too but there is this specialty baker in Dunwoody “Glenn Rose’s Cupcakes and Minicakes”. Those cupcakes are phenomal. They have a huge selection but most importantly, they have mastered “taste” and not show.

Amazing Cakes in Mableton has the best cupcakes! My favorite is the caramel cake cupcake with homemade caramel frosting! I have had others, but theirs are the BEST! A miniature version of a homemade cake, a good alternative when you are trying to watch your weight!

The Atlanta Cupcake Factory. To “RED” and “Gabrielle’s on Whitlock Ave in Marietta,” as soon as you said she was Paula Deen’s cousin I was turned off. Paula Deen has oversaturated the food market. She was great in the beginning when she kept herself real on her shows, but that didn’t last long. Now, she is sickening silly. Most of us can’t stand to watch her.

WOW! Another Best Food survey about junk food….is that why so many Americans are over weight?! Can we do a survey on the best fruit smoothies? Or, best salad bars? Or best grilled chicken? Or, best healthy eating establishment with grilled veggies? Last week, it was the best buffet….**shaking my head***

You have to try the “Tin Cups” at Incredible Southern Poundcakes in Stockbridge, GA. They are actually made from an old-fashioned pound cake recipe; they come in a variety of flavors and frostings. They can be decorated beautifully for various occasions–weddings, showers, baby showers, tiers, etc. They hold up well because they are actually mini poundcakes. You must try these and all the other goodies at the Stockbridge location. http://www.southernpoundcakes.com

Miss A, you have to snark about health on a blog about CUPCAKES??? Go pull that large stick out of your bum, chillax, and have a cupcake. Otherwise, STFU & leave the rest of us alone. B-BYE!

The Cookie Studio, WONDERFUL. I visit there often and order them for the office. Try the key lime and red velvet, it’s ‘off the chain.’

Okay, I’m a taster, not a baker. So here’s a “real review”: Sweet Pocket cupcakes. Lenny is the owner adn I met her when i bought my first cupcake at a coop she belonged to. She now has two stores — and if you are going nuts gearing up for a party etc, she will deliver. Plus she makes the cutest little “party flags” that said, I ask for my flags to be double sided, otherwise you get the sweet pockets logo on the other side (sorry Lenny but its cuter with graphics on both sides!). Her cupcakes are the best and she is a great person. My favorites are Red Velvet, Oreo, Starlight and Lemon Sunshine.
