What's sweet, smiling and covered in frosting? Any kid who has eaten a Pink Moon Cupcake Bakery cupcake. These oh-so-delightful confections infuse a little whimsy, a little ingenuity and a lot of palate-pleasing flavors into one bakery staple that creates an experience all its own.

Pink Moon bases their cakes on homespun recipes but adds some extra flair. From tried-and-true flavors like vanilla and chocolate to the more daring carrot buttercream, red velvet and caramel macchiato, along with an array of handmade truffles and candies for good measure, Pink Moon is sure to send you over the moon.
