You probably think you’ve had a great cupcake- you may even have a favorite bakery that you frequent to get your sugar fix.  You may also think you’ve had the best cupcake in the city- you haven’t.  Let me explain.


A few weeks ago I had a party where I work, and wanted to serve something special- something different.  I usually make my own desserts, but simply didn’t have the time.  I reached out to a friend who makes cupcakes for special events.  “What type of cupcakes would you like?” she asked.  “I’m not sure- give me a few varieties- all chocolate, please.”


Katie Palamara of KatieDid’s cupcakes (you can see her website here) showed up with a trio of deliciousness- chocolate trifle, triple chocolate, and mocha crunch.  These are just a few samples of the flavors- she even has vegan raspberry swirl! The cupcakes were meticulously packaged in a baker’s box with a see-through top.  Each dessert was nestled in individual inserts within the box ensuring the cupcakes safe, and proper delivery.

Three elements are required for a truly successful cupcake.  First, the desserts must look delicious and beautiful- we eat with our eyes first, right?  Next, the cake has to be moist, and light.  Lastly, the buttercream/icing should be fluffy and flavorful.  Check, check, and CHECK!  I sampled all three, and was amazed at the quality- the only difficulty I had was choosing one that I liked the most.


You haven’t had the best cupcake in the city unless you’ve sampled one of these gems.  These signature cupcakes are prepared by a true artisan- someone who understands the importance of dessert.  My advice?  Try them all!

      I’d eat her cupcakes everyday if I could. The mocha-flavoured and Bedtime Snack are my absolute FAVES! You can’t really get the same freshness and creativity at Giant Eagle or even a basic bakery. Sorry Giant Eagle 😛

    I agree!! I got a dozen for a Halloween party. I gave Katie complete creative control. Told her I wanted something gory. She came up with cupcakes with a bloody brain and shard of glass. They were delicious. They were a huge hit. My only mistake, not ordering enough.
