Icing on the Cake, Bellingham

Icing on the Cake serves fresh baked gourmet cupcakes. We had the pleasure of indulging at the Bellingham Farmers Market today. We sampled many a dish, but icing on the Cake warranted its own spotlight.

My partner and I had ‘black and white’ cupcakes and the kids all chose pink ‘peppermint’ cupcakes.

The black and white is dark chocolate cake with buttercream frosting with dark Belgian chocolate drizzled on top. The peppermint is dark chocolate cake with peppermint schnapps buttercream frosting.

Still with me? Because I was at a loss for words to describe how divine these cupcakes were. My oldest, however, after his first bite said: ‘heaven’. We all agreed Elizabeth Kovacs (traditional Hungarian name) should be strongly encouraged to gift us with a brick and mortar bakery we could be loyal to.

The last time I was this satisfied with a dessert I still lived back East and C. Marretta Bakery on Bell Boulevard in Bayside, NY was the place. Will anyone open a storefront in Bellingham with real cannoli and rainbow cookies?

Does anyone know the real website for the Bellingham business? I think the one linked in that article is for a place in Tempeh.

Absolutely the best cupcakes EVER!! I’m obsessed…btw, one is never enough. You finish the first one and only a few hours later you’d do anything to have another.

Love, love, love Icing on the Cake cupcakes. They’re amazing! Her mini’s are just big enough and so rich tasting that they’re the perfect size for a sugar craving. Her cupcakes are an awesome feature of the market.
