Cupcake Crawl: Swirlz!


The cupcake crawl continues! Today we are spotlighting another Lincoln Park gem, Swirlz. Their motto is simple, “Cupcakes Make People Happy”.  And isn’t that the truth? Located at 705 W. Belden, this small cupcake shop is bursting with fabulous little delicacies. Their display case is always fully stocked with the most ridiculous flavors you can imagine and changes daily.  Their menu is a creative one featuring gluten free and vegan options, regular size and minis. Carrot Bourbon Cream Cheese, Chocolate Raspberry Hazelnut Crunch, Banana Nutella, Twixie and Snixie…I recommend just closing your eyes and pointing, you can’t go wrong. I walked out with a Vanilla Espresso this time around! If you can’t make it into their sophisticated bakery, you can find them on the shelves of Whole Foods throughout the Midwest (Impressive!). Their twitter is always boasting with what they have made for the day and an occasional chance to win a few of their masterpieces! I recommend stopping in often at this little cupcake shop or calling an order or two in for your next event or get together! Bon Appétit!

Cupcake Crawl: Molly's Cupcakes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We've take on the societal duty of finding the best cupcakes of Chicago. We know it won’t be an easy task, but someone’s got to do it!  

Our Cupcake Crawl begins at 2536 North Clark in Lincoln Park at Molly’s Cupcakes. The shop has a playful vibe as you walk in with swings to sit on at their bar, and a variety of games that customers play at their tables. They have plenty of unique cupcake creations like ‘The Ron Bennington’, ‘Boston Cream’, Blueberry Cheesecake’ and ‘Cake Batter’ to name a few! And for those that like to stick to what they know, Molly’s offers Classic Flavors of 'Chocolate', 'Vanilla', 'Carrot', 'Banana' and 'Red Velvet'. Once you make the hard decision of which flavor you move on to icing, 'Classic Vanilla' and 'Chocolate', 'Cream Cheese', 'Brown Butter' or 'French Buttercream'. Oy vey! Make your cupcake personal by adding whatever toppings speak to you! And as an added bonus a portion of their profits are donated to schools in the community, in honor of Molly who was a third grade teacher! After much debate, we ordered two of their Classic Flavors, a banana cupcake with classic vanilla frosting and sprinkles and a vanilla cupcake with classic chocolate and the odd choice of gummy bears (the sky’s the limit)! And what more could we ask for? Good news Chicago Brides, they vow to customize your cupcakes with whatever toppings and decorations your little heart desires!


Our first stop on the crawl was a huge success. We recommend you satisfy that inner cupcake craving that lives withing all of us and stop in at Molly’s Cupcake! Bon appétit![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7029" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_single_image image="7030" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][/vc_row]
