Cupcakes are very, very good. Clearly the best place for cupcakes in the Cedar Valley. Many choices with seasonal specialities. Eat in or take out! Friendly service.

There seems to be a cupcake revolution happening in Iowa with new boutique baleries popping up everywhere. This is by far the best I have tried yet. It's a must try for anyone with a sweet tooth!

A little pricey, but worth it. These cupcakes are not only aesthetically pleasing, they are just as delicious. Very soft and very tasty. There are so many different flavors, it's a sure win.

Tried many other "cupcake" bakeries... this is by far the best! The downtown area in Cedar Falls is a fun place to walk around and shop also!

First of all I am not a "cake" person, more of a pie guy, however these cupcakes are something I LOVE. They have monthly flavors as well as the regular standbys. But here is nothing ordinary about these cupcakes, they are simply the best I have ever had. Natalie is a wonderful Christian business owner who has built this business... More

This place serves only cupcakes (along with coffee, soda, etc) and they have dozens of different flavors, all homemade. The cupcakes are delicious, the atmosphere is fun and relaxed, and it's a great place to take the family for a fun time.

If you have never enjoyed the delicious variety of cupcakes made by this bakery then you are missing out on one of the best treasures in the Cedar Valley. They make the most fantastic mouth-watering cupcakes ever. There are a wide variety of flavors and I always find a "new favorite" every time I go there.

Why do I love Scratch? Because it has perfect combination of sugary frosting that at the same time is rather light, unlike most buttercreams. Moist and delicious cake is an added bonus, but let's face it, frosting makes or breaks a cupcake. Ridiculous variety of innovative cupcakes. They never stand pat either, always developing new flavors. Molly's finally has some... More

We stopped on a whim at this cupcake place in downtown Cedar Falls. It was superb!! The selections were top notch, with so many to choose from! Myself, my hubby and teen daughters were thrilled with the appearance of the shop to begin with, but then even more so when we began looking at our choices of cupcake to devour!... More

Scratch Cupcakery started in downtown Cedar Falls and has now branched out to several different communities. Every community with Scratch is lucky to have the chance to try these cupcakes. I have tried other cupcakes from different sellers, but none beat Scratch Cupcakery. Their taste is superb and their variety of options is out of this world. Even though trying... More
