Indulge yourself, your friends and maybe your co-workers with freshly baked cupcakes from Houston’s Crave Cupcakes in Uptown Park and Upper Kirby.
Be prepared to be engulfed in sweet olfactory heaven when you walk into either Crave Cupcakes location. Crave bakes up fresh cupcakes throughout the day, every day of the week, and when you open the door your nose confirms that you’ve made the right decision. The crisp, sweet scents waft your way from the kitchen, visible just behind the counter. Despite the bright modern decor, your eyes will be drawn to the display case, filled with rows of recently created bits of cupcake-y goodness.
Founded by Elizabeth Harrison Cooper, Crave Cupcakes’ selection varies from day to day, with each day having a set menu, but there are a few standby flavors that are usually in stock. Sometimes a particular flavor will sell out for the day or before a new batch is complete. So it’s best to be flexible in your expectations or plan ahead and pre-order at least two dozen of your favorites. (If two dozen seems like a lot of cupcakes when you just want to secure one, then consider it the perfect way to turn satisfying your craving into scoring points with a generous gesture at the workplace).
Crave sources its ingredients from near and far, using items such as local dairy, European chocolates, Madagascan vanilla, and Napa Valley fruit. Regardless of the ingredients, and the flavors they concoct, Crave donates each day’s left over cupcakes to Prepared for Life. So you can be certain that your chosen cupcake will be fresh and flavorful.
