Great Cupcakes

Great selection of gourmet cupcakes. The downside is each cupcake is over 2000 calories. Not healthy food but very good.

Hi exacta123! Thanks for taking the time to write a review!! I wish we knew where that calorie rumor started...it keeps rearing its ugly head and is so far from the truth! A 2000 calorie cupcake would be more than 3 big macs, large fries, and sugary soda! YIKES! Our cupcakes are rich, absolutely, and I can see why someone... More

The fact that this is currently ranked as the #1 restaurant in Cedar Falls is more of a knock against how this place is categorized. Yes, good cupcakes and good service. The icing for the cupcakes is very good. The cupcakes are fine. Seriously, cupcakes can only be fine. They should be #1 of 1 bakery in Cedar Falls. I... More

We visited Scratch Cupcakery last May after commencement at UNI. I had had Scratch cupcakes before, but it was my first visit to the shop and my first time to see the huge selection. The cupcakes were delicious, of course, but I want to share that the coffee was very good, too. Even better, despite it being a busy day... More

I have eaten the cupcakes at Scratch when it was a tiny store where you had to wait in line around the block. They were worth the wait and still are today. I was able to meet the owner in a class I took this summer. Now, I know why they continue to be so good. I am happy that... More

All I can say is this was the best cupcake I've ever had. We make it a point to visit cupcake shops when traveling. I went for the cotton candy cupcake. It was absolutely perfect. And, I'm not even that big of a fan of cotton candy. Moist cake. Great flavor without being "fake".

Cupcakes are a little too sugary, but otherwise are tasty. Very cute store and even cuter cakes. The employees were all super nice.

So many choices and all good! My favorite is coconut love but there are so many more. Always fresh and keep good for a couple days. Hard to go by without stopping!

The cupcakery is an experience that my customers love. I took a dozen to a professional office setting and the staff was ecstatic. They love the variety of cup cakes and how they always have new flavors of the month. After that my customer told me the door is always open for me and a box of Scratch cupcakes.
