Cupcake "Project"

Who needs Magnolia Bakery (NYC) when you have Great Scotts?

The other morning I was reading a fellow Cleveland Blog, and came upon her "Great Cleveland Cupcake Project." The objective is to give your favorite cupcake (Cleveland-based, store bought only) an online "Shout Out!" Vote for the best contest. I knew the perfect recommendation, and couldn't wait to participate.

Like all Friday mornings I am up super early for a weekly standing meeting, my “cupcake project stop” was the perfect way to get through an early meeting...after a late Thursday night...I digress.

Great Scotts Bakery located on in a little plaza on Wooster Road (2214 Wooster Rd ) in Rocky River has luscious cupcakes. My favorite is the perfect white “Wedding Cake Cupcake.” Piled high with sweet frosting you may need to eat this treat with a fork as it is really big and sometimes hard to get a mouthful without having it all over your face! As an avid cupcake connoisseur, I am amazed how they get the little vanilla cake to grow so tall while maintaining the dense texture, good baking is such a science. This cupcake is great for sharing and costs $2.50.

If you are interested in posting or participating in this “project” visit for “rules.” Project ends June 1, results to be posted by June 15th.

* Thanks to Sara M. for the delicate handmade book also featured in my photo, I couldn’t resist. Thanks again Sara, it’s wonderful!

Yum! I love white cake and white frosting but my family always makes me make chocolate.

I am NOT a big fan of cupcakes. But, someone brought Great Scott cupcakes to a meeting I was at and since there was notheing else to go with the coffee, I thought I would try one.


Their Red Velvet is to die for. I am glad they are not "just around the corner" from us -- otherwise I would certainly spend too much time and money there.

The perfect treat to bring for colleagues or family you love.
