Cupcake Tower Giveaway!

by on August 20, 2010 · 180 comments

Every cupcake is a miniature work of art, so why not display yours in style with a The Cupcake Tower.

Cupcake Tower

Founded by sisters Joy and Jennifer, who believed there wasn’t yet a cupcake stand out there worthy of holding the precious creations of cupcake bakers around the word, The Cupcake Tower was hand crafted as a fresh and elegant showcase to cupcake batches of all sizes.  There’s Tiny, Small, Medium and Large, and today you have the chance to win one “Small” which if you ask me, is a pretty nice size for a home baker.


It has three layers (10”, 14” and 18”) and holds approximately 72 standard size cupcakes, stands 13 ½ ” high when put together, folds flat to store just about anywhere, is made of durable wood (mdf) and has a thin laminate coating similar to a countertop so that it wipes clean easily.

If you like the Cupcake Tower, you can become a fan on Facebook to get all the latest Cupcake Tower news, and you can take a shot at getting one for free.

For a chance at having a cupcake tower sent to your home, write a comment telling me who in your town makes or sells the best cupcakes.  If your favorite cupcake was from a place not in your town, that’s okay too — but make sure to say where.  . Fuzz and I will randomly choose a comment Monday morning the 23rd of August around 7:00 AM. Any comments after that will be read with interest, but not eligible for the giveaway.  The lucky commenter will be notified by email, as always.  Good luck!  And I look forward to hearing about all the good cupcakes.

UPDATE: Contest has a winner — Dee, who chose Icing on the Cake in Folsom, CA.

i live in nowhereland, wv. there are no bakeries here at all! it’s pretty sad especially because i am from los angeles where they have bakeries all over, but i digress! over here on this side of the states, my sister in law makes the best cupcakes. she is very inventive & they always come out perfecto!

martina fegan August 20, 2010 at 1:20 pm

We do not have speciality cupcake bakeries in our town. The best I have ever eaten came from Crumbs bake Shop in New York City. They are absolutely amazing!

Heidi August 20, 2010 at 1:26 pm

Pattycakes in downtown Grapevine, TX!

My favorite cupcakes come from Stephanie Santana @ Sweetest Creations in Santa Barbara, CA

Jodie August 20, 2010 at 1:28 pm

The best cupcakes I have ever had is from my Aunt who runs a bakery out of her home in Jamaica.

Jennifer August 20, 2010 at 1:32 pm

Best cupcakes in Boston are at Finale! DELISH!!

Jenn August 20, 2010 at 1:38 pm

I’m with Susie D, it’s me…this area leaves a LOT to be desired in the bakery departments, unless of course, you enjoy waxy, lardy buttercreams.

Hannah August 20, 2010 at 1:38 pm

A well known shop called Cupcakes is well known around Vancouver but the real good stuff is found at Big City Cupcakes. So many amazing options!

Lisa August 20, 2010 at 1:46 pm

Since there really isn’t a place to get cupcakes where I live, I’d have to say that my go-to default for cupcakes is my sister.

Lauren August 20, 2010 at 1:47 pm

Kickass Cupcakes in Davis Square (Somerville, MA) sells some AWESOME flavors!

Melissa August 20, 2010 at 1:53 pm

In Dallas I really like Society Bakery. They’re great cupcakes (and everything else) and they donate to all sorts of good causes.

xhamsterzx August 20, 2010 at 1:58 pm

The one’s in Sweet and Savory in LA. They taste really good. They have red velvet, carrot, and more.

Jin August 20, 2010 at 2:03 pm

Baked, in NYC Brooklyn. Softest, fluffiest cupcakes ever. I love their sweet and salty cupcake – chocolate cupcake with a sprinkle of salt.

Niki August 20, 2010 at 2:04 pm

I’ve just recently discovered Flirty Cupcakes, which is a cupcake truck in Chicago! It’s b/w them and Molly’s Cupcakes in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago. Yum

Caroline August 20, 2010 at 2:04 pm

My favorite cupcakes are from my mother in law, since i have a hard time justifying paying 3 bucks a cupcake in some places!

Monica August 20, 2010 at 2:05 pm

The best cupcakes in Woodbury, MN come from my kitchen! My cousin and I have a dream of starting our own cupcake business. This would be the perfect thing to add to our collection :)

Maggie August 20, 2010 at 2:16 pm

I’ve had a lot of gourmet cupcakes in my life but none of them can come close to the mass produced sprinkle topped vanilla cupcakes I used to get at my local grocery store in Long Island, NY. The grocery store closed down years ago but for some reason I always get this craving for those generic cupcakes, I think my tastebuds are rooted in nostalgia.

Molly August 20, 2010 at 2:18 pm

I love Wuollet Bakery near my hometown in Wayzata, MN. I heard that two cupcake shops, Sugar Hoot and The Sweet Spot just opened in my current town (New Milford, CT) so I’m anxious to try those out!

Sarah August 20, 2010 at 2:24 pm

Cupcake Delights in Glasgow, Scotland… yum :) Mind you, none better than when you make your own!

Sarah August 20, 2010 at 2:24 pm

Cupcake Delights in Glasgow, Scotland; yum :) Mind you, none better than when you make your own!

starr August 20, 2010 at 2:32 pm

I live in a small town …. So I make the best cupcakes! :)

Natalie (The Sweets Life) August 20, 2010 at 2:35 pm

Jilly’s Cupcake Bar in STL is the best!!

Stacie August 20, 2010 at 2:35 pm

Well, in my town, there is no one who makes cupcakes. So, I will have to say me! I love baking and can make a yummy cupcake if necessary! :) Staciele(at)netins(dot)net

Rebecca August 20, 2010 at 2:38 pm

A few months ago, I had a delicious mint cupcake at Tee & Cakes in Boulder, Colorado. I haven’t found a good cupcake place in my own town, but that’s definitely the closest amazing cupcake I’ve had!

Kerri August 20, 2010 at 2:58 pm

In The Mix Cupcakes in Newtown, CT ROCKS!!!!

CC in St. Paul August 20, 2010 at 3:00 pm

Cupcake in St. Paul, MN, of course! My favorite is the S’Mores cupcake; toasty marshmallow on top.

Allison August 20, 2010 at 3:09 pm

My favorite cupcakes of all are from Georgetown Cupcake (and, yes, I loved them before the TV show). But, my favorite cupcakes in my area come from Carolina Cupcakery in Chesapeake, VA.

ladywild August 20, 2010 at 3:14 pm

Miss Mamie’s in Roswell, GA. My favorite is the peanut butter banana.

Julie August 20, 2010 at 3:29 pm

I love Sibby’s Cupcakery in San Mateo they make the best strawberry cupcake!

Janna August 20, 2010 at 3:43 pm

I’m a fan of Oh My Cupcakes in Sioux Falls!

Lauren August 20, 2010 at 3:48 pm

There are only two places in my small, southern town that do cupcakes and that’s me and another place called Crave. And being biased, I like mine at The Sweetery the best! :)

Michelle August 20, 2010 at 3:50 pm

It’s not in my town, but Sprinkles cupcakes in Newport Beach, CA are good. Pricey, but really good!

Betty @ scrambledhenfruit August 20, 2010 at 3:56 pm

Here? Well, there’s no bakery and no place other than the grocery store to buy cupcakes (you know, the ones in the plastic clam-shell boxes?) so I’d have to say that my cupcakes are the best ones around. (Not that I’m bragging or anything- there just isn’t any competition!)

Kerstin August 20, 2010 at 4:07 pm

In Boston, my favorite place so far is called Petsi’s Pies!

Sondra August 20, 2010 at 4:27 pm

There really aren’t any cupcake places where I’m at. I know there are a couple in St Louis but they aren’t close to me. We did have a new bakery open not too long ago. It is called Slice of Heaven Bakery. I’ll have to check if she has cupcakes the next time I’m in there.

Laura August 20, 2010 at 4:50 pm

I can’t say that they make the best tasting cupcakes…but my co-workers follow The Cupcake Truck blog (New Haven, CT) to see if they’ll be parking nearby, and to check you the cupcake/frosting choices of the day. The lines and pre-truck crowd are a testament to it’s popularity.

Jessica S. August 20, 2010 at 4:53 pm

They just opened a Sprinkles recently in Houston. They are delicious….

kindra stewart August 20, 2010 at 5:19 pm

The best place for a cup cake is at the New London Bake shop in Prince Edward Island.

Katy August 20, 2010 at 5:28 pm

The only bakery cupcakes I will eat are from Two Little Red Hens on NY’s upper east side. Any flavor. If I win I want Emma to have the cupcake stand :)

May Bowser August 20, 2010 at 5:32 pm

Philip Burns, owner of Mity Nice Bakery ( featured on Cupcake Wars, Food Network) makes THE BEST cupcakes Locally….Eureka Ca

Emily August 20, 2010 at 5:37 pm

Clementine’s in Palm Desert, CA.

Laura L August 20, 2010 at 5:39 pm

I think the best bakery cupcakes in Houston are from Crave, but they can’t compare to homemade!

Carly August 20, 2010 at 5:42 pm

In Cleveland… White Flower Cake Shoppe :) I’ve heard Main Street Cupcakes are amazing, I just haven’t had the chance to go there yet!

Arden August 20, 2010 at 5:49 pm

My favorite cupcake spot in New Jersey is Crumbs Bakery, but when I go to my hometown in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sprinkles is the clear choice!

Tina August 20, 2010 at 6:16 pm

Well since we don’t have anybody that sells cupcakes here I guess mine wouldn’t consider to be my favorite. ;-) Miss Emma ready for school?

Tina August 20, 2010 at 6:20 pm

oops I meant would! ;-)

Fallon August 20, 2010 at 6:22 pm

My favorite cupcake place is in Las Vegas called Caked! The owner is from Hawaii and had her bakery featured on the TLC show Fabulous Cakes. Her cupcakes have a 50/50 cake to frosting ratio. I made a blog post all about my experience going and cupcake tasting. You can click the link here to check it out.

My favorite flavor is the Creme Brulee!!

Sherry August 20, 2010 at 6:23 pm

I won’t take the vain route and say myself (though it is true!), so I’d have to say this one bakery in Pittsburgh called Vanilla. It’s not too far from me and it’s definitely worth the drive anyways!

Charlene August 20, 2010 at 6:31 pm

I live in a very small town and there isn’t a good bakery for at least 30 miles – so sad, but maybe someday I will have to do something about it. So, I am going to say that I make the best cupcakes, at least that is what my family tell me. My niece is seven and just announced she is going to be a baker and she told me that she thinks mine are the best too! Have a great week-end and thanks for the chance to enter
