Who knew that when the cupcake craze hit Ottawa a few years back it would turn out to be more than just a passing fad lasting a season or two at best. Whether they're replacing the traditional cake at your wedding or simply being served as part of the late night buffet, cupcakes are here to stay.

The cupcake has really evolved over time. From the mouth watering choices in flavours of cake and icing to the many creative ways to decorate and display them, there's no such thing as the "standard" cupcake anymore.

Along with the evolution of the cupcake is the evolution of places you can now get them. The Ottawa area is full of great shops that create these yummy treats!! Here are just a few - The Cupcake Lounge, The Flour Shoppe, The Girl With The Most Cake, Isobels, Little Cakes and The Lush Cake.

    So are we! The little bite size ones though. I <3 cupcakes!

  3. We're having a cake but I want to do individual cupcakes for our guest favors. Would any of these cupcake shops have individual cupcake boxes and be able to package them for me too?

  4. I should also mention that I'd need 250 of them :-)

  5. Hi Ella, we can definitely help you out with individual guest favours! Feel free to give me a call or email at!

    Happy planning!

    We're having a traditional cake but I've always loved cupcakes. Never thought of giving them out as guest favors. What a great idea!

  7. Thanks so much for including us!!!

    We're going to have cupcakes for our wedding in 2011. Nice to see so many shops in Ottawa reaching out.

  12. It's nice to see so many shops in Ottawa period. When my sister got married she had to make her own. Not what you want to be doing the day before your wedding. I'm having cupcakes too but I'll get them from one of these wonderful cupcake shops :-)
