Katie’s Cupcakes

My daughter calls it the dancing cupcake store. My sons want to go there everyday now and participate in the Dirty Dan Days cupcake eating contest (who wouldn’t?).

Katie’s Cupcakes is open for business in Fairhaven. It is adjacent to Rebecca’s Flowershop with a shared interior doorway. This is why it smells like eden = floral green smells and sweet bakery smells. The space is high and bright and pastel. There is a children’s nook with games and books. And there is a glass case filled with fresh little delights. The little delights are cupcakes. The cake tastes like a cloud and the icing like its puff; so light and delicately sweet. Basically, a two thumbs up from all four of us.

Katie, her husband and daughter are very friendly. The girls working the counter were, too. Katie’s daughter even played a game with my kids for a little while (she was coaching them in the how-to department). I ate a pina colada cupcake with a little paper umbrella (coconut pineapple cake with light fluffy vanilla frosting and shredded coconut), the kids: cookies and cream (chocolate cake with cookies and cream frosting and oreo on top), black and white (rich chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream frosting) and red velvet (light chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting). Katie can make 17 different varieties of cupcakes. She has 5 regulars and then rotates the rest throughout the week. She does special orders (I just missed by one day the gluten free cupcakes leftover from a special order) and I’m hoping she’ll whip up a recipe that is vegan. They’re working on it.

They serve Spice Hut teas which are the BEST in Bellingham and locally brewed Agri-Bay coffee. Katie quits baking at about 4:30, so shake a leg if you want your favorite!

That’s awesome that they are working on something vegan! My husband loves a good cupcake so we may have to go by there for him sometime soon. And I can have some tea too–and yay for Spice Hut teas–they are so good. I love Earl Grey Special or a nice smoky Russian Caravan.
