One star is a generosity. I bought a Groupon for Cakes by Karen to get cupcakes for a party of professional adults. When I walked into the Northglenn location, it was a cluttered mess! Is this store Karen's living room from 1975? Piles of paper, dirty bake ware, clean bake ware, and family photos are just a few of the... More

I can create my own cake and know it will be great and ready when they say it will. Want suggestions? Karen is very responsive.

Maybe not the place to get a wedding cake (Old fashion and out-of-date cakes), but for SURE the place to get the best cupcakes in town.
