These Coconut Fudge cupcakes were Julia’s favorite variety at the Cuppa Cake Café.

Cuppa Cake Café, a quaint café that opened up in Green Ridge Corners a little less than a year ago, has gotten rave reviews about its adorable atmosphere and delicious cupcakes. After hearing all these positive things, I decided to check it out for myself.

The café itself has a very light and unique atmosphere, making it utterly enjoyable to sit and enjoy some of the delicious cupcakes. The café was decorated for the autumn season and had adorable cupcake decorations hanging on the walls.

The owner of the café was very welcoming, friendly, and eager to answer my questions about the café. Every day the cupcakes are made from scratch, and recently other items on the menu have become more popular, such as their lunch food options which include soups and sandwiches.

The cupcakes are mini, making it so much easier to eat more and feel guilt free. One mini cupcake is $0.85, a half dozen is $5.10, one dozen is $9.99, and two dozen is $19.55. Ultimately, the prices are extremely reasonable, making the cafe that much more unique.

I decided to try one of each of the cupcakes that were on display that day. That morning, they baked blueberry swirl, cookies and cream, coconut fudge, pumpkin, apple pie, pink velvet, salted caramel, chocolate fudge, and vanilla.

Each cupcake had its own signature taste and was delicious. The frosting on each cupcake was light and creamy, so it didn’t leave you feeling overly full like some thicker frostings do. The cupcake itself was moist and melted in your mouth. The cupcakes reminded me of the famous Magnolia Bakery in New York City.

My favorite cupcake by far was the coconut fudge. If you love coconut and chocolate, I recommend trying that one next time you stop in.

Cuppa Cake Café has some of the best cupcakes I have ever had, and the fact that they are mini makes it so much more appetizing. If cupcakes aren’t your thing, (which after visiting this cafe I’m sure they will be), try some of their delicious lunches, other dessert options, or a nice “cuppa” coffee.

Cuppa Cake Café’s hours are Tuesday and Wednesday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Thursday and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  The cafe is located on 701 E. Market Street in Green Ridge.
