The next time you’re downtown, swing by the Fort Collins Convention and Visitors Bureau in the square and pick up a copy of the Fort Collins Coupon Book & Dining Guide. It’s got a ton of great offers like the Buy One, Get One Free coupon for the Butter Cream Cupcakery that I’ll be blogging about today. Before I begin my post though, please note that I have not been paid to say good things about the Butter Cream Cupcakery; I just genuinely love it.
The Butter Cream Cupcakery is a personal favorite of mine. I love the idea of a shop dedicated to cupcakes because its perfect for all of my dessert needs. I can stop in for a single treat when I’m craving something sweet (they have mini-cupcakes if I’m feeling guilty), I can order a dozen for a co-workers birthday, or I can place a specialty order for a party or wedding (which I did for my wedding in 2010). They also have two convenient locations: their main store located on College and Horsetooth and a smaller shop in Old Town on College and Laporte, next to Starbucks.
The Cupcakery has a huge variety of flavors (see full list HERE), so many that they have a special “surprise” flavor every day and “daily special” flavors that recur each week. I make sure to follow the shop on Facebook to keep up on their surprise flavors, but you can also check their website. The flavors can get a little crazy, like Piña Colada and Sweet Potato, but they offer five classic cupcakes every day in addition to their “daily special” and “surprise” flavors: Vanilla Bean, Chocolate, Red Velvet, Chocolate on Vanilla, and Vanilla on Chocolate.
The day I went in with my BOGO coupon (exclusive to the Fort Collins Coupons & Dining Book, and valid at both of the Butter Cream Cupcakery’s locations), the “surprise” flavor of the day was banana. Mmmmm! I like the vanilla on chocolate, but I ended getting two banana cupcakes.
If you’ve got a craving for something sweet, I’d definitely recommend heading down to the Cupcakery with or without a coupon. Meet a friend for a cupcake and coffee, or take the kids out for a treat (they have Princess Storytime at the Horsetooth every Thursday at 1).
