On Saturday around 2 p.m., I was on my way to Midtown from Germantown when I saw the sign for Cupcake Cutie, Etc. on Stage Road in Bartlett.
One U-turn later, I was in line puzzling over what to get. Cupcake Cutie is a "cupcake bar," sort of in the fro-yo model. You choose a cake flavor and icing and then toppings.
Among the cake flavors: butter, chocolate, red velvet, and strawberry. Icings include buttercream, chocolate, caramel, and cream cheese. The list of toppings is long — graham crackers, Pixy Stix (!), Oreos, walnuts, M&Ms, etc.
I got chocolate cake with buttercream icing, chocolate and peanut butter chips and banana chips.
I was at a loss for what to choose, and I can't say I'd recommend this combo. Seems Cupcake Cutie is on the case creating cupcake combos from you to choose from (that one seems to be named Pink Eye ... well, ew).
A jumbo cupcake with three toppings starts at $3.50. Cupcake Cutie also hosts parties and can create custom cakes.
Cupcake Cutie, 7140 Stage Rd. (729-6514). Open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
