Okay, I’m a wee bit obsessed with Patty’s Cakes. I am the Goldilocks of cupcakes…this one’s too sweet, this one’s too dense, this one’s too dry. Well, fellow Yelpers, Patty’s Cakes are just right!
I had read the reviews for this place months before actually going in. I was driving on my way to lunch one day and randomly saw it and immediately turned my car into the parking lot. It’s a diamond in the rough of the shopping center it’s located in.
The inside of the shop is small and cute, and I learned that Patty decorates it often to reflect the season or holiday going on at the time. The girl that helped me (Bridget? Brittany?) was super sweet and helpful. I told her it was my first time there, and she welcomed me and described the cupcakes and recommended some great flavors.
I ended up getting the Lemon Drop cupcake and red velvet cake ball for myself, and a chocolate with peanut butter mousse cupcake and chocolate chip cake ball for my honey. It was love at first bite! The cupcakes were moist, but not too rich, and the frosting…oh dear God! It’s a whipped frosting, so it’s not too heavy or too sweet. Her presentation is awesome, too. The peanut butter mousse had chocolate ganache over it topped with a peanut, and the lemon had a lemon drop (hence the name) over the lemon and whipped frosting. The cake balls are so delish and huge! They’re like the size of a golf ball!
I know some people don’t like that the cupcakes aren’t on display, but I like that they frost the cupcakes to order.
I made many returns to Patty’s, trying all the different cupcakes, and when looking for a cake for my upcoming wedding, there was no other choice. My venue actually includes a cake, but I had to have Patty make my cake.
Patty was so incredibly nice and funny during our cake consultation. I felt like she was an instant friend! She was so helpful with suggestions of the design of the cake, and was so patient when my fiancé and I struggled to narrow down the flavor choices. I absolutely cannot wait to have my cake and eat it too on my special day!
I feel so fortunate to have such a fantastic cupcake shop so close to me. Patty’s Cakes is my go to for cupcakes and cakes for any special occasion!
