Cupcake places are popping up everywhere! It’s madness I tell you! Delicious, sweet (slightly sickening) madness! Believe it or not, after Jeremy and I stopped at Stacey’s Sweets in Ozark, we hightailed it to Nixa to try ANOTHER new cupcake joint. I have to be honest…this place was good but after trying several different kinds of cupcakes and a brownie at Stacey’s Sweets, I probably was a little sugared out at this point. TwentyOne Cakes is in a house turned bakery right on Highway 14. It’s a very straightforward, unassuming place. I was surprised to walk in and see the cupcakes were actually mini cupcakes which I was VERY thankful for after gorging ourselves on EIGHT regular size ones not even an hour earlier. There were also a couple of different kinds of cake pops, a HUGE peanut butter chocolate chip cookie and I believe there was a cake also that you could get by the slice.
My only criticism of this bakery was the lack of just a basic cupcake. Most of the flavors were somewhat unique and different if not what some might consider “odd” and I really like to try at least a couple basic cupcakes when I go somewhere new. Then again I might have just come on the wrong day. I did however think her cakes were nice and moist (which is impressive for minis!) and the buttercreams were quite delicious. And I wasn’t a fan of the cookie; it wasn’t quite as soft and chewy as I prefer. But hey, that’s just me. Overall, a delicious experience! Here’s what we ended up choosing:
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie
If you are in Nixa, check this place out for a sweet fix! And if you’ve been there, let me know what you think!
