A Cupcake Café to Call Their Own


Let Them Eat Cake an established, family-owned cake boutique in the heart of Phoenix is proud to announce their new addition, Cupcake’s Café.  After years of offering cupcakes as a fun alternative to their variety of elaborate wedding & party cakes Barbara Gardner, owner and Cake Lady In Chief, has decided to fulfill one of her dreams to open her own public establishment.


The pink hued whimsical storefront with adorable bistro tables and stools will soon be offering a variety of seventeen different cupcakes that are sure to be the talk of the town.  The Café will offer a total of ten varieties a day with five flavors being daily and another five specials.


Barbara Gardner has been designing and decorating customized wedding and all-occasion cakes since 1977.  With her husband, Mitch, they employ a staff of five and pride themselves on fresh, moist cake – never frozen.  The Gardners have won many awards over the years. Additionally, the readers of The Wedding Chronicle voted Let Them Eat Cake, the tastiest cake of 2007. 


Their friendly and professional staff claims the most on-time deliveries in the Valley.  In addition to their popular wedding cakes, their party cakes have served hundreds of corporate clients and the likes of the Chicago Cubs, the Phoenix Suns, and even George Clooney.


The Gardners have two small children which made starting the Kids Club a natural next step. “I’ve been creating party cakes, corporate cakes and wedding cakes for thirty years, so in Cupcake’s Café we created a welcoming place for family. Friends and anyone else who would like to stop by,” states Gardner. 


The Club is free to kids up to 18 years of age and will offer after school specials of cupcake and milk for a discount.  Membership also gives the option of custom created birthday parties and a punch card for members to earn their own free cupcake.


A few popular flavors are mocha madness, butter rum, Boston crème pie, velvet rose and chocolate rampage. One of the seventeen flavors was inspired by local business, Chat, Chew & Chocolate. “We teamed up with Dena at CCC to create a wonderful cupcake that represents the theme and look.  It’s pink and brown sprinkled with a little inspiration,” adds Gardner. 
Not only does Let Them Eat Cake make the most beautiful and best tasting cakes for weddings, don’t forget about the bridal shower, bachelorette party, luncheons, teas, grooms’ cakes, birthday, corporate, farewell, baby shower, retirement or many other occasions.  Because they are a custom cake boutique they make cakes in the wildest shapes and sizes.  Check their website for ideas.   


Let Them Eat Cake often has a waiting list so it is a good idea to call as soon as you know you want to order.  Cupcake’s Café will offer an array of homemade cupcakes in their storefront, along with several six to eight inch fresh party cakes available for cash and carry for last minute needs.
