Cupcakes in Chicago

I know it’s been a while since you’ve seen cupcakes on here, but I’m back today with a quick stop for cupcakes in Chicago for Travel Thursday!  If you’re newer to this blog than you might not know about my obsession with cupcakes, but I have a long standing love affair with cupcakes…as in I’ve been to over 75 cupcake shops around the country (and blogged about approximately 50 of them!)  I am all about overall being a fit and healthy traveller…but I splurge on cupcakes!  And in case you’re wondering…

When I was in Chicago it only made sense to stop in and try a couple of shops…after my runs of course! My first stop was at Sugar Bliss Cake Boutique and I have two words for you…Frosting. Shots.

I mean do you even need another reason to pop into Sugar Bliss?  I don’t think so!

My next stop was a cupcake truck…because that’s just genius!  Cupcakes for Courage is not just a regular cupcake, it’s a cupcake for a cause and I just absolutely love that!

What cupcake shops would you recommend I check out in future travels?  What is your favorite flavor of cupcake?

  1. I loooove cupcakes! This post made me really want one and it’s only just after breakfast here! I’m a sucker for chocolate cupcakes they are my absolute favourite! I feel like I might have to plan a trip to Chicago and try these ones!

    1. I will totally have to check them out next time I’m on the East Coast!!! I love getting new cupcake recommendations, so thank you!!

    1. They’re not for everyone! Just like I don’t really enjoy most chocolate desserts…which most people think is just crazy!

    1. Unfortunately the only cupcake places I’ve been to in NY have been chains that I’ve also had elsewhere but I know there are TONS of great cupcake places in NY…I’m hoping to get there in the next year or so to do a cupcake tour!

    1. Cupcakes are definitely one of the reasons I run!!! Although I’m not sure I’ve run enough to compensate for the cupcakes I’ve eaten 😉

  2. I love cupcakes! I was just at a wedding recently and their dessert was lime cupcakes, they were delicious! I think I need to run just looking at this post!
