I normally eat pretty healthy throughout the week… but who can resist a delicious cupcake? Especially when it’s made by the two lovely ladies, Olivia and Andrea, of Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop in Austin, Texas! Did I mention that they WON The Food Network’s Cupcake Wars back on April 7, 2013!?!
Made from scratch with the finest ingredients, you can be sure that the creations made at Sugar Mama’s will go beyond expectation in regards to quality and flavor. They even offer a variety of vegan and gluten free options. Not only do Sugar Mama’s cupcakes taste great, they look incredible, and the shop’s atmosphere make the entire visit an overall awesome experience. Once you pick out your treat, you can sit down in their cozy seating area and relax while you indulge.
I don’t care to admit exactly how many of their cupcakes flavors I’ve sampled. I will, however, tell you a couple of my favorites. The vegan Cookies N’ Cream (available Thursdays) is a decadent Bensdorp chocolate cupcake with cookie bits, topped with vanilla frosting and a chocolate cream filled cookie. You know… THAT cookie! It’s divine. Since my most recent visit was on a Saturday, I was able to snag a highly-sought-after, much-craved Peanut Butter Cup(cake)!! It’s composed of a moist Valrhona chocolate cupcake with peanut butter chips, creamy peanut butter buttercream, and a peanut butter cup topper. The buttercream is just phenomenal. I mean just look at it!! Sugar Mama’s offers 5 ‘everyday flavors’ and 6 other daily cupcake choices (3 on Sundays). Check out their menu here.
So you’re not a fan of cupcakes? Cue chorus of gasps. Well, have no fears! They also offer bars, cakes, cookies, cinnamon rolls, pies, and scones. Check out their Facebook page or give them a visit next time you’re in the area!
