This is a full service bakery, but I was first introduced to me by my sister for their delicious cupcakes. We have ordered them several times since for catered events. I like the plain vanilla frosting a w/yellow cake, but the Lemon Frosting is also quite delicious. I love them!!!!

And if you like yours dense and lightly frosted - it may be for you. I thought they were too heavy and not enough frosting. If there was a filling, that may have helped, but that is not an option. I tried 3 chocolate cupcakes with chocolate, vanilla and caramel frosting. The frosting was tasty, but overall, not worth the... More

The cookbook is a great selection of family stories based on everyday life and the memories that involved cooking. Anyway, one of things I had to visit while in Phillie was the Brown Betty. Wow what a treat!!... More

Delicious gourmet cupcakes well worth the cost. Frosting is not to be missed too. The location is the heart of northern liberties.
