Taste like Walmart brand, the ones sitting out not refrigerated. Buttercream is much better quality. They are pretty here but it would give you diabetes with the amount of sugar they put in here. Heavy handed on sugar, not flavor.

I stepped into sift on the recommendation of a friend. The display was simple it's a bit confusing. The attendant greeted me but offered no introduction, explanation or promotion of any of her product. I selected the Samoa cupcake. The cake was moist and delicious. The ganache filling was less than creamy. The icing was far too thick and very... More

I've been to a lot of cupcake bakeries and this is my all time favorite. The cupcakes are always moist. I love how consistently good they are here. Sometimes some bakeries are hit or miss...moist one visit and dry another time. With Sift, I'm always very pleased with the quality of their cupcakes. I always make a point of stopping... More

I tend not to like cake - it is dry and crumbly. But this cake is spongy and fantastic with really interesting toppings. I haven't had a bad one yet.

Unless you have been diagnosed with Celiac or a Gluten intolerance that only effects you on Wednesdays...don't bother going. I was so excited to find this bakery while on holidays in Napa only to find out they only offer GF once a week. I walked away very dissappointed!

Treat yourself to an awesome dessert... The berry fruit pie was awesome and the carrot cup cake was delicious. This little gem offers a wide variety of sweets that will all dazzle your taste buds... it is a small place so you need to focus when looking for it... but well worth the visit... on weekends they are open until...

I've been skeptical of this whole cupcake fad we're in, but we were on vacation and the missus wanted to try this place, so we bought 2 - and wow, they were amazing! 2 varieties of chocolate, both moist, rich cakes, with delicious, not overly sweet icing. I still won't be buying too many $3 cupcakes, but I'm glad I... More

Loved visiting this place while in Napa... great flavors of cupcakes and icing. My favorites: Peanut Butter Ripple, pink champagne, battle royale and the sky is falling - all winners of the Food Network Cupcake Wars. They also have cookies, cakes and cuffles (cake and frosting blended together - YUMMMMM)! www.siftcupcakes.com
