Chocolate bacon, peanut butter crunch, strawberry milkshake...cupcakes?
A few years ago while visiting a friend in Los Angeles, I did what any other cupcake lover in their right mind would do...I waited in line (for well over an hour) at Sprinkles Cupcakes on little Santa Monica Boulevard to get a little taste of cupcake heaven. Fast forward to present day where only blocks away from my office is Boulder's original gourmet cupcake shop, Tee and Cakes (1932 14th Street).
Sorry Sprinkles, but Tee and Cakes not only has way cooler flavors but their line never exceeds five minutes - well not yet anyway. This past weekend, Tee and Cakes was featured on a CBS4 news segment highlighting Tee and Cakes Chocolate Bacon Cupcake! This particular flavor is only available on Saturdays (or by custom order).
Tee and Cakes bakes and designs their cupcakes fresh every morning Monday - Saturday (closed on Sundays). For the best selection, get there around 11 a.m. To view their daily menu of cupcake offerings, click here. Don't forget that you can place custom orders! My personal recommendations include: Peanut Butter Crunch, Triple Chocolate, Coco-Cola and Strawberry Milkshake. (I'm a vegetarian so someone else is going to have to tell me how the Chocolate Bacon tastes!)
If you are looking for a unique cake for a special occasion (including weddings), check out their custom designs. While you are at the shop, browsTee & Cakes Side B Apparel - a super cute line (featuring tees, hoodies, onsies, tanks, toes and more) that is designed in-house and print locally.
