In honor of my recently heightened sugar addiction, due to pregnancy no doubt, I would like to pay tribute to one of my many favorite places to indulge. Most recently because of their closeness to my house and the irresistable marketing ploy of 50% off cupcakes, I hit up Urban Cookies Bakeshop. These tempting treats are spectacular in many ways, I adore their creative flavors, the frosting is spot on and the cake is light and flavorful. I originally found this delectable sweet shop because I have family members with food restrictions and they provide both vegan and gluten free options that still taste amazing.
I have shared their goodies at favorite things parties with my gal pals, I’ve used their vegan/gluten free donuts to create a special birthday cake for my sister, my son loves their vegan options (chocolate chocolate donut in the house) and our friends are thrilled when I show up with a dozen cupcakes, although they always seem surprised that one is already missing from the box (what, like you could wait to eat one?!)
A few fun facts you probably don’t know:
- Urban Cookies is family owned.
- They make cookies, custom cakes, cupcakes, donuts and other treats from scratch daily.
- They are Cupcake Wars winners!!!
- If you follow them on social media, you’re in the know for their special deals.
They also do happy hour Sundays from 1-4pm where you can get your cookies and cupcakes for 50% off! Recently they did these cupcakes for the Superbowl and the one made for my special Seahawks team was out of this world. We’re talking caramel filled cupcakes topped with this irresistable coffee frosting. This week they are featuring Oscar Cupcakes where you’ll find Strawberry Champagne and Caramel Corn, to name a few.
Find them online or follow them. There Sugar Shack is located on 7th St just south of Camelback.
Till next time my sweet foodies! xoxo
