I have a secret that I have decided to share with all of you… I found the best cupcake bakery in the world! I have traveled around the world and tried cupcakes in over a dozen countries and I can honestly say Sweet Cakes specialty bakery in Redwood City, California is the best cupcake bakery in the world.
Sweet Cakes bakery is owned and run by Rey and Karen Garza, a friendly husband-and-wife team. Everyday Karen whips up batches of deliciously flavored cupcakes from scratch. They offer a variety of mouthwatering flavors, and feature different ones each day in the store. Every morning around 10 am they will post the flavors for the day on their Facebook page. And every morning at 10 am I sit at my computer filled with anticipation and excitement waiting to find out what flavor cupcakes will be offered that day.
My personal favorites are the Cookie Crumble and the Snickerdoodle. The Cookie Crumble is a vanilla cupcake with cookie crumbs folded into the batter and squirted with a little chocolate ganache and then topped with Mexican vanilla buttercream frosting rolled in fine cookie crumbs and drizzled with chocolate ganache. The Snickerdoodle cupcake is a cinnamon sugar cake with a thin layer of cinnamon sugar baked on top and then topped with cinnamon buttercream frosting and a freshly baked snickerdoodle cookie. Seriously my mouth is watering right now thinking about these delicious treats.
The owners and staff at Sweet Cakes are so friendly and they never judge you if you order 6 cupcakes for yourself! They even deliver within five miles of the downtown store for free, and, they can accommodate orders as small as one cupcake.
I love these cupcakes so much I have had to do lots of “research” for this blog post. I have been known to drive over an hour for one of their cupcakes, and have eaten their cupcakes before and after having a cavity filled. They are just that good!
Next time you are in Redwood City or anywhere close enough to drive there you must stop by Sweet Cakes bakery! Sweet Cakes bakery is located at 810 Bradford Street in Redwood City. You can follow them on Facebook by clicking here to see their daily flavors.
