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?
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!
Totally worth the trip!

Oh my gosh, now I want to visit as many cupcake places as you have! And it looks like I need to run a few marathons to work off all the cupcakes over the years. 🙂
This may or may not be why I run 😉
if you’re in Dallas, check out Gigi’s cupcakes in Carrollton/Plano!
I’ve been to Gigi’s in Nashville…and actually met Gigi! She is as sweet as her cupcakes!
Two things I love, Chicago & Cupcakes! Never been to either but will definitely check them out when I get to the city again!
Chicago and cupcakes make my heart extremely happy!!!
I heart cupcakes!
When we were on vacation in DC, we went to Red Velvet Cupcakery http://redvelvetcupcakery.com/ at Reston Town Center. Holy yum. Even the vegan cupcakes were delish and I’m not vegan ha ha
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!!
Fun! As odd as it sounds I’m kind of “eh” about cupcakes. I like lemon ones though.
They’re not for everyone! Just like I don’t really enjoy most chocolate desserts…which most people think is just crazy!

I love cupcakes!! Which cupcake place is your favorite in New York??
Go run, go cupcakes!!
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!
Holy yum!! Get in my belly! I like your math. 🙂 According to my calculations…I’ve concluded that I need to run a couple marathons. Totally worth it though.
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 😉
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!
Ooooh I love cupcakes as well! Love that image – too funny!

I need to do so many marathons… I LOVE cupcakes!
This explains why I’m nearly 200 days into my running streak lol
I am so checking these out next time I’m in Chicago! Can never turn down a cupcake 🙂
Right?!? I have such a difficult time turning down a cupcake!
These look fantastic! I will have to keep these in mind the next time we head up that direction!
We are cupcakes soul sisters! Love this!!
I rarely meet a cupcake I don’t like lol
