A Miracle on Delmar Blvd – Jilly’s Cupcake Bar

Jilly's Cupcake Bar

Bring in the Holiday’s with Jilly’s Cupcake Bar

St. Louis, MO/December 6, 2016 (STLRestaurant.News) Jilly’s Cupcake Bar – About a month ago I wrote an article about my Top Five Cupcakes in St. Louis.  I’m a secret cupcake junkie so it was one of my favorite articles to write.  Jilly’s Cupcake Bar and Café, located at 8509 Delmar Blvd, made the top of my list.  I also noticed that it also made our Top 10 St. Louis Bakeries list back in September.

Why does Jilly’s keep making its way into my articles, as if it’s part of a subliminal message resting just below the threshold of my consciousness?  Hmmm….I think I have it figured out.  I believe it’s quite simply the fact that there are NO other cupcakes can hold a candle to one of Jilly’s!

My theory was confirmed when I stopped in yesterday and tasted one of her seasonal holiday masterpieces, the Merry Cranberry Gooey Butter.  If Michelangelo were alive, he would be in awe.  This work of art is a perfectly formed creation of the moistest Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cake iced with decadent White Chocolate Buttercream and a Vanilla Glaze Drizzle, and a dusting of Powdered Sugar and topped with incredible Candied Cranberries.

If by some very slight chance you haven’t heard of Jilly’s Cupcake bar and Café, they are a 2 time winner and 3 time contestant on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars.  USA Today named them one of the top 10 spots to get a gourmet cupcake in the nation, and they even won the American Culinary Federation Award of Excellence for 2014.

If you aren’t quite in the Christmas spirit yet this year, perhaps due to the warm weather late in the fall, I guarantee you a trip to Jilly’s and a couple bites of one of these holiday miracles will help get you in the mood.  I want extra good gifts under my tree this year, so I’m leaving Santa a very special “Merry Cranberry Gooey Butter Cupcake” 😉

Whether it’s one of their 9 Classic Cupcakes available every day, a Monthly Creation or a Customized Order, you will definitely not be disappointed.  The Cupcakes come in 3 sizes:  Gourmet 8 oz, Standard 5 oz, Mini 2 oz. Also, be sure and all so try their amazing soups, salads, sandwiches and wraps.‏

Classic Cupcakes: Twisted Pink Velvet, Bee Sting, Reese’s Chunkage, Turtle Cheesecake, Missylicious, Chocolate Thunder, 24-Karat Carrot Cake, Ka-BOOMM, and Simply Iced.
