When the question is "Want a cupcake?" the answer, invariably, is yes. But when the question is "Want a cupcake from Whipt Cream?" the answer involves everything from vigorous nodding to gleeful applause to knocking over a coworker in the mad scramble to get to the box. This Chesterfield bakery turns out some of the most beautiful, most delicious cupcakes we've ever seen or eaten. Each cupcake looks like a Food Network masterpiece writ small, with soft peaks of buttercream icing topping the dense, moist cake beneath. Whipt Cream's daily roster of cupcakes is a sweet-toothed person's fever dream; wander in any day and you'll find the Black & White (chocolate devil's food cake topped with Italian vanilla buttercream), the Chocolate Banana (chocolate-banana cake topped with Italian banana buttercream and chocolate shavings), the Vintage Vanilla (vanilla cake with Italian vanilla buttercream) and more. Seasonal offerings are also available — October brings a too-good-to-be-true spiced pumpkin version. More than just the sum of its cupcakes, Whipt Cream also creates gorgeous full-size cakes for any occasion. Plentiful samples and fresh, free coffee make your sweets shopping even sweeter.
