Cupcakes are the new big thing. In California there are tons of new cupcake stores that have opened up. The problem is in this economy who want a store just devoted to cupcakes? One cupcake store may make sense but many cities have tons of cupcakes stores which is to much. It is unlikely that these new stores will last long. Most stores will close before the cupcake fad is over. Which cupcakes store might last? Which cupcake store is the best? Well one cupcake store to open in San Diego is California Cupcake Company. If you want to know how California Cupcake Company compares to other cupcake locations then read on.
California Cupcake Company claims to be the premier premium cupcake store in San Diego. That is actually a pretty big claim to make with San Diego being such a big city and cupcakes stores being ubiquitous now. However it seems that even if they are not the best they certainly are one of the best cupcake stores in the area.
Obviously the cupcakes at California Cupcake Company are premium cupcakes which means you will be paying a premium price for these cupcakes. However the price for these cupcakes is pretty standard with the cost of other premium cupcakes. Simple ones are $2.50 which is actual on the cheap side. However specialty ones are $3.50 which is on the expensive side for premium cupcakes. Also they offer Jumbo sized which is nice. Of course you will pay more for these jumbo cupcakes. Jumbo cupcakes are priced at $4.50 and $5.50. That is an expensive cupcake but it is cheaper then buying two. You can also buy one dozen for $30, $42, $54, and $66. There are other options as well such as the cupcake tree with 100-200 cupcakes.
California Cupcake Company will take special orders but ask you give 5-7 days for them to make these special orders. They also have special holiday cupcakes and even a delivery service.
While they offer lots of things other cupcake stores do not offer like Jumbo sized cupcakes and delivery service they do not have the number of choices. Yes they have a good variety and even toppings and special requests but they do not have the same number of options that others have. They have all your favorites flavors but they do not branch out into unique flavors or create ones that are unique to them.
The only bad things about California Cupcake Company are they can get expensive and they do not have as good a selection as other premium cupcake stores. However the cupcakes are good, some are reasonably priced. I would recommend giving them a try but you may like others as much or better its a matter of taste.
