Oh, man, have I been sitting on these cupcake pictures from Wilmington's Concord Pike strip mall cupcake haven, Cupcake Heaven, for a long while. Like, maybe half a year! Sorry.
If you're looking for inventive flavors and a wide variety of cupcakes, Cupcake Heaven is just the place for you. With about 120 different cupcake flavors in their repertoire, and 25-30 of those available daily, you're gonna have to root around to find your favorite. Sugar-free, vegan, and gluten-free cupcakes can be made by special order, as well as larger cakes for special occasions.
With so many flavors, and, of course, personal preferences, some of Cupcake Heaven's creations are complete misses, but others are hits. I've found some cakes to have different textures and levels of moistness, too, making some perfect and others not so much.
Cute cupcakes are (were) trendy, but Cupcake Heaven missed that memo, and is operating out of passion, not fashion. The website could use an update, and the strip mall shop set up as a cafe that also offers soup, sandwiches, and coffee lacks warmth, classy decor, or any other inviting qualities beckoning customers to stay longer than it takes to order, pay, and hop back in the car. It's a shame, really, but don't let that stop you from dropping by.
This chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting and pretzel pieces was moist, rich, sweet, salty, and perfect. The French Toast cupcake reminded me nothing of French Toast and was a little dry, but that's OK, because three out of four cats prefer cream cheese frosting.
Red Velvet was underwhelming, which is on par with most, and the other cupcake (I've forgotten what it was, it's been so long, but pretty sure it was eggnog) was just spiffy.
