R.I.P. Crumbs! These 7 U.S. Bake Shops Will Continue the Cupcake CrazeThe cupcake craze seemed to sweep the nation over the last decade. Crumbs may have closed its doors for good, a number of cupcake standouts remained the creams of the crop. All across the United States, you can most likely find a local baker serving up nothing but little pockets of cake with inventive, classic and gourmet flavors and pairings. To go on your own cupcake tour of the U.S., be sure to stop and eat cupcakes at these sweet cupcake staples.

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Originally started in Beverly Hills, California, Sprinkles quickly sprinkled all over the U.S., opening up locations in California, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Illinois, Georgia, D.C., and New York. Sprinkles prides itself on using only the best of ingredients. It is particularly delectable for its lemon coconut cupcakes, a treat composed of Madagascar bourbon vanilla cake with lemon coconut cream cheese frosting.

Magnolia Bakery
Magnolia Bakery opened its doors in 1996 in the West Village and quickly garnered fame for its cupcakes. Since its opening, the bakery has perfected classic American baked goods, namely the cupcake. Magnolia Bakery also boasts locations in Los Angles, Chicago, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Beirut, Kuwait City and Doha. Cupcake connoisseurs will appreciate the classic flavors such as PB&J, carrot cake and Devil’s food cake with mocha buttercream.

Molly’s Cupcakes
Originally started in Chicago, Molly’s Cupcakes might have one of the most endearing of stories for its inspiration. The establishment is named after the owner’s third grade teacher who baked cupcakes on each student’s birthday. As a result, a portion of the profits is donated directly to the schools in the Chicago community. Molly’s Cupcakes bakes each cake from scratch every day. You can even create your own cupcake by picking your cake flavor, frosting and toppings. Molly’s Cupcakes also has locations in New York and Iowa City.

Atlanta Cupcake Factory
For artisan cupcakes, Atlanta Cupcake Factory tends to take the cake. Founded by Jamie Fahey, the philosophy here is real food. No shortening is used to make mini, standard, jumbo and giant cupcakes. The sugar cookie cake with browned butter, rosemary and pine nut frosting showcases just how much Atlanta Cupcake Factory cherishes good quality ingredients.

Pinkitzel Cupcakes and Candy
Those with a sweet tooth drool over Pinkitzel Cupcakes and Candy in Oklahoma City. The gourmet cupcakes aren’t merely topped with frosting. You can also add over 100 different loose candy options. Some of Pinkitzel’s cupcakes look too pretty to eat.

Cupcake Royale
With locations all over Seattle, Cupcake Royale has quickly become the frontrunner for best cupcakes in Washington. The cupcakes at Cupcake Royale always seem to have that little something extra that makes you wonder just how delicious it will be. Cupcake tasters can delight over the blueberry brown Betty, the salted caramel cupcake, the peppermint party and even the lavender cupcake.

Jilly’s Cupcake Bar and Café
Jilly’s Cupcake Bar and Café doesn’t serve up your average cupcakes. These cakes are jumbo in size. While intended for sharing, we won’t blame you for devouring these St. Louis sweets. Once Jilly’s cupcakes are stuffed and decorated, they weigh around a half a pound each.
