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.

The Coffee Shop in Gilbert, AZ has amazing cupcakes. Boston Creme, Pumpkin Spice, Lemon and so many more!!! They competed on Cupcake Wars and they won! I love that they are a family owned and operated business! It is always great to support our local businesses!

Carla August 20, 2010 at 6:54 pm

Honestly, I don’t have a place because I don’t know if I’ve ever been to a real bakery. I know my cupcakes get eaten quickly, but if I had to pick, my friend at school always made cupcakes for someone’s birthday.

Everyone raves about Trophy Cupcakes in Seattle but we think they don’t compare to the original Sprinkles in Beverly Hills. Love, Love, Love them. PS, the mix from William Sonoma doesn’t even compare.

This cafe makes jumbo vegan cupcakes pilled high with frosting.

Randi August 20, 2010 at 8:49 pm

I love Frosted in Long Beach, Ca. Sprinkles in Beverly Hills is great too.

Pat August 20, 2010 at 9:21 pm

The best cupcakes baked in Catonville, Maryland are made in my own kitchen…………can’t keep them around long with 8 grandchildren waiting for them to come out of the oven!!!!

BabetteBakes August 20, 2010 at 9:22 pm

Best cupcake in Chicago is at Southport Grocery!

Lauren August 20, 2010 at 9:35 pm

I’m an administrative assistant at an office in Cambridge, MA and we order from Kickass Cupcakes in Somerville, MA all the time. They are super tasty.

Sophia August 20, 2010 at 9:35 pm

this isn’t really “in town” for me, but Carlo’s Bakery (home of Cake Boss the reality show…) makes AMAAAAZING cupcakes :D

Salted caramel cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake in Washington, DC!!

Oh my! These are amazing!

debbie August 20, 2010 at 10:06 pm

My favorite cupcake place is Sprinkles in Newport Beach, CA. I had to wait in line for an hour and they only sell certain flavors on certain days!!!!

Melissa August 20, 2010 at 10:06 pm

I’m a strong believer in home-baked goods, so in that respect I’d like to think I’m the best cupcake maker in Baltimore (not to toot my own horn!). Otherwise, Charm City Cupcakes is delicious, too. omydarlingblog(at)gmail(dot)com

Lindsey August 20, 2010 at 10:09 pm

I abolutely love the Kettle Corn cupcake from Sweets Bakeshop in St. Paul! Such a unique flavor for a cupcake! The Very Vanilla is always delicious too!

Kandi August 20, 2010 at 10:10 pm

The “Cake Lady” of Fairland! She makes the best, simple birthday cupcakes known in the area!

Siera August 20, 2010 at 10:10 pm

Vanilla milk chocolate from Sprinkles in Scottsdale Arizona!

Lynetta August 20, 2010 at 10:28 pm

The best cupcakes in my area come from Jo’s Party House. They are divine!

Aly August 20, 2010 at 10:30 pm

I have to say I love Publix cupcakes from their bakery. I could eat a bowl of the icing alone!

Cookie Sleuth August 20, 2010 at 10:49 pm

Sprinkles in Newport Beach makes the best cupcakes. The founder is one of the judges on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. The red velvet, banana chocolate, and peanut butter dark chocolate are my favorites. I think I have to make a trip there this weekend! This is making me hungry!

jenni August 20, 2010 at 10:50 pm

Sprinkles in Beverly Hills! Always been my favorite.

Lauren August 20, 2010 at 10:52 pm

Hello Cupcake in Dupont Circle, Washington DC!

Angela August 20, 2010 at 11:21 pm

Obviously I make the best cupcakes. ;) But if I had to pick the place that *sells* the best cupcakes, I think I’ll say either Hey Cupcake! or Lick It, Bite It, Or Both.

Sally August 20, 2010 at 11:31 pm

I live in Los Angeles and my favorite cupcakes are in . . . Houston, TX from Crave. I had a wonderful Key Lime cupcake . . . hmmm the airport isn’t far from here I could be there for breakfast. I find Sprinkles way too sweet and sometimes dry. Crave was moist and delicious with just the right amount of not-too-sweet frosting!

Lexi Cotcamp August 20, 2010 at 11:32 pm

Sprinkles in Newport Beach! SOOO GOOD :)

Felice August 20, 2010 at 11:37 pm

I like the flavors from Cupcake Couture.

Rachel August 20, 2010 at 11:37 pm

Chocolate cupcakes from Ketchie Creek Bakery in Mocksville, NC. Very rich, but good! The icing was sort of marshmallow dipped in a very thin chocolate glaze.

janet August 21, 2010 at 1:10 am

baby cakes in San Diego!

Lori August 21, 2010 at 4:35 am

Kelly cakes, Roswell GA!

Nikki August 21, 2010 at 6:27 am

I am still searching for a great cupcake in my area. I’ve tried Dozen’s cupcakes here in Pittsburrgh. They looked great but the texture was very dry, almost stale. Going to Chciago in a couple weeks will try there.

Ann August 21, 2010 at 7:39 am

sweet cupcake in cambridge, MA.
I love their “frosting shots” perfect size for sweet cravings that won’t make you guilty!

Cooking Gallery August 21, 2010 at 7:54 am

Delectable from Ipoh, Malaysia have beautiful and cute cupcakes. I am in Germany, am I eligible to enter?

CaSaundra August 21, 2010 at 8:02 am

Rapheal’s bakery in my town makes the best red velvet cupcakes ever!!

Tory August 21, 2010 at 9:20 am

Elizabethan Bakery in Encinitas has FABULOUS cupcakes! Amazing flavors, and you see them making them right there with fresh ingredients, nothing processed. Plus they are beautiful!

dorian storbeck August 21, 2010 at 9:35 am

mission minis — on 22nd street between mission and south van ness in san francisco!

Jen August 21, 2010 at 9:40 am

I’m also in Pittsburgh and agree about Dozen.. they look fantastic, but I’m vegan and though they do make a couple vegan flavors that are quite good, they’re just not.. amazing. I’d have to say my favorite cupcakes are made by a local baker whose company is called “My Goodies” Bakery.. she bakes treats to order and also supplies a lot of goodies to the Quiet Storm and some other local shops. I think she’s better known for her cheesecakes but I LOVED the cupcakes I had made by her. So my vote (in Pittsburgh) for best cupcakes belongs to My Goodies.

Frankly that cupcake stand would probably make even the worst cupcakes look good, though.

Patty August 21, 2010 at 9:55 am

Well, I make the best cupcakes in town!!!!! I don’t buy cupcakes. It is a waste of my time and money, since the family doesn’t want anyone else to make them.

Yael August 21, 2010 at 10:13 am

The cupcake craze has not hit here in Israel yet , so for the time being, I make the best cupcakes around!!

CookieMama August 21, 2010 at 11:23 am

Honestly, I’ve never had a fancy, baker-bought cupcake. I’ve only ever eaten grocery store varieties, box mix cupcakes, or ones I’ve made myself.

Tiffany August 21, 2010 at 11:40 am

I can honestly say I’ve never paid money for a cupcake. For the price, I can make myself a whole batch. For something like pastries, however, I would recommend Gourmandise in Salt Lake. My husband and I go there all the time for eclairs, croissants, elegant cakes, etc.

Michelle August 21, 2010 at 12:31 pm

Out here in the middle of nowhere, Fingerhut Bakery in Knox, Indiana makes the best cupcakes!

Suzy August 21, 2010 at 3:08 pm

I don’t think anyone makes cupcakes in my tiny town except Kroger, and I don’t think they count. Can I vote for myself? I just made strawberry cupcakes with vanilla buttercream for my daughter who turns 6 Monday, and my friend who tried one just raved about them. They are pretty good, if I do say so.

Judi A August 21, 2010 at 3:20 pm

Sprinkles in Newport Beach

laura August 21, 2010 at 3:21 pm

In Chesterfield Township, Michigan the best cupcakes are made in my kitchen. i use an old Sanders Bakery recipe for chocolate Bumpy Cake.

Kate R August 21, 2010 at 3:38 pm

The best cupcakes in Houston, TX come from Crave Cupcakes! Try the Espresso or the Humingbird, you can’t go wrong!

carrie August 21, 2010 at 3:48 pm

My sister makes the best, and she’ll get the tower if I win.

melissa August 21, 2010 at 4:28 pm

Crumbs Bakery just moved into our neighborhood last week, and I was very excited. My favorite of theirs is the “Squiggle”. I like their cupcakes much more than the ones at Magnolia.

Dee August 21, 2010 at 4:50 pm

My daughter-in-law, Laura, in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, makes the best red velvet cupcakes.

Karen August 21, 2010 at 5:54 pm
