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.

The cupcakes are pretty good, mine was abit dry but the kids loved theirs. Price is good and they offer a lot of coffees and teas but they were so HOT we couldn't drink the tea for 30 mins waiting for it to cool off. we stop here each time we go to Cedar Falls

I have been visiting the Cedar Falls Scratch for quite awhile now and I not only enjoy the cupcakes but love their decor and atmosphere. Staff is always helpful and very patient while we try to make our selections. UNI students love Scratch as do we all.

We just ended our date night with a stop at Scratch and it was (as always) a treat! I will often stop in and grab a "shot" of frosting because that is my favorite part. Keep up the great work Scratch! We are always up to try your new flavors.

Thought the cupcakes were the best I'd eaten. We tried the chocolate vanilla, coconut, and fruit pizza. Beautiful presentation, friendly staff, and charming place.

True local unique delicacy. Every cupcake is a work of art. Ask the counter if you don't like rich flavors as most are rich, but they are very helpful.

I have been eating at Scratch since they started in Cedar Falls. These cupcakes truly are the best you will ever eat! I haven't had one yet that I haven't loved. They are cheap too!

Always a smile here. Smells great, super cute spot. Everyone needs to try a SCRATCH cupcake! I like to keep on hand a few of their "free cupcake" cards.. just like a little gift card ($2), makes a great gift to throw into a bday card.
