On a little tour through the Heights with the parents, we stumbled across a cupcake house—What’s Up Cupcake. Of course I wanted to go say “what’s up”, so we stopped in for an afternoon pick up of sugar and caffeine.

Vanilla Bean Cupcake

Cake a little dry and thick. However, it had a good vanilla flavor, with speckled vanilla beans throughout the cake.

It was a very typical vanilla buttercream. The butter was so rich that it melted into the cake, making it a good combination.

A simple design… just topped with little gold sugars.

Sweet Endings

I’ve seen their truck drive around through town, but visiting the shop is a must. The shop is this house-turned-into-bakery, with fun cupcake memorabilia throughout the shop. My favorite was two little chairs fit for children enjoying their little treat. Overall, it had a very homey feel and would be a great place to spend the afternoon.

I preferred the other flavors I got to try. My parents had the red velvet and the hummingbird. The cream cheese frosting was delicious!

Look at all of these options!
