I recently need to place a quick last minute order for a dozen cupcakes. I called from the road and ordered them and paid for them, arranging for someone else to pick them up. The person who took my call was friendly and helpful and made a potentially stressful situation easier!

In town visiting daughter at UNI. She kept gushing about the wonderful cupcake store downtown, so we stopped by to try it ourselves. Huge selections of cupcakes! They all looked so yummy!!! We bought some my daughter to take back to her dorm, and more for us to take home.

Love the selection, great service and everyone there always seems to be really happy. Love the area in downtown Cedar Falls on Main Street. We make it a point to visit Scratch every time we visit the kids at the University of Northern Iowa!

I live in California, but have family in Iowa. I have an average of 3-4 visits at this place per visit to Iowa. I can't tell you how good scratch cupcakes are. I prefer them over ice cream! Nothing goes over ice cream for me, so this is saying a lot!! They are the softest, tastiest, freshest, yummiest cupcakes I've... More
