Family owned and operated, Sugarbaby’s opened its doors in July 2007 as the first Houston bakery to specialize in cupcakes. The cupcake movement itself originated in the bakeries of New York and quickly spread to various quick-serve establishments in L.A. and other high profile cities. As native Houstonians, we wanted to bring this delicious concept to Houston in a family oriented, service friendly environment, where customers could not only run in and purchase their favorite treats, but also have a place to dine-in with friends and family over coffee or tea or celebrate with a group in a unique private party space. We also wanted to offer more than the "as is" philosophy of most cupcake shops by offering our clients the ability to customize their order and create desserts as individual and unique as their event.
What Makes Us Unique
Simply put, our cupcakes are the real deal.
For starters, Sugarbaby’s cupcakes are made fresh daily from scratch. No mixes or cake bases here. Several of our recipes are old family recipes, and we use only the finest ingredients in all that we do. We select premium dutch and black cocoa and gourmet chocolate from companies like Callebaut and Guittard. The only vanilla you’ll find in our store is the best Madagascar bourbon vanilla out there – not that imitation stuff. We use organic carrots in our 24 Carrot Cake and vanilla bean in our Va-Va-Vanilla cake. We hand dip chocolate covered cherries to top our Velvet Rouge. There’s no shortening allowed in our store…so when we say we top our cupcakes with buttercream, we mean it – good old fashioned butter, confectioners sugar, and real vanilla. We also don’t bake with additives or preservatives, so that not only means there’s NO LEFTOVERS from the day before in our store but also that you don’t want to wait too long to enjoy your desserts (but who could wait with a cupcake on their mind anyway!)
Our menu has something for everyone. Whether you are a traditional cake person or like your desserts a little more on the adventurous side, we’ve got a flavor you are sure to love. Plus we like to change up our selection of cupcakes and desserts fairly regularly to keep the assortment in tune with the seasons and our customers’ suggestions and preferences. We want you to have a reason to come back and try something new!
Finally, each Sugarbaby’s cupcake is its own little work of art. Our fabulous team of bakers and pastry chefs take pride in creating desserts that are as appealing to the eye as they are to the stomach. We welcome the opportunity to create a custom dessert selection to match your specific theme, but we also put as much love in our everyday cupcakes as we do in our special order designs, because they are ALL special to us!
