The Original Cupcakery is local bakery in Dallas, Texas that serves over 30 different original cupcake flavors along with other sweet treats. The small bakery is well organized, spotless.

Staff wait at the counter, with friendly faces, to bag up whatever cupcakes behind the glass that your hearts desire. With a name like The Original Cupcakery, paying them a visit was a must for The Taste Team.

Pretty in Pink

I always like to try the basic, yellow/white cake with buttercream frosting. At The Original Cupcakery, my frosting was pretty in pink and there was nothing basic about this little cake. This was their signature cake, and it goes by the name Tickle Me Pink. It was just the right texture and consistency, light and fluffy, and packed full of flavor.

The frosting was near perfect with just the right amount, not too little, but not too much. Although this cupcake was awesomely good, my favorite of the four was still sitting in the glass, waiting to be neatly tucked away in a tiny little box. The next three that I chose were strawberry lemonade, The Julius, and strawberry shortcake!

Strawberry Lemonade and The Julius

The strawberry lemonade is a part of their summer selection, and is available June through August. A delicious combination of sweet and tart, it’s lemon cake with fresh strawberry puree and strawberry cream cheese frosting. They even add a fresh strawberry on top.

That’s hard to resist, and it kept getting better and better. The Julius, which reminds me of a dreamsicle, is an orange pineapple cake covered with orange and heavy cream frosting. At this point, I was speechless, but that didn’t stop me from tasting.

My favorite of the bunch, The Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake

I’m sure most all of you are familiar with traditional strawberry shortcake. This one was made with strawberry cake and strawberry buttercream frosting, carefully decorated with heavy cream frosting to finish it off.

There was nothing familiar to my palette about this cake. It was beautifully and richly made, just the right amount of sweetness, and just as fluffy and delicate as the rest. The strawberry shortcake was my absolute favorite from The Original Cupcakery. I somehow managed to save a few pieces until the next day, and they were just as fresh and moist as the day of purchase.

Overall Experience at The Original Cupcakery Dallas

They really put their heart and soul into these cupcakes. I can tell that it’s their art. It’s not some basic cake with different types of frosting slapped on top. This is art, fresh and uniquely made. They make their frosting with 100% fresh butter and 100% fresh cream cheese, and I could tell in every bite.

There’s only one other place that I’ve thought so highly of when it comes to cupcakes, and The Original Cupcakery is neck and neck with them. I’ve had a lot of cakes and even more cupcakes, and I can honestly say that thus far, The Original Cupcakery stands out among the rest.
