Coral Gables is getting a little bit sweeter. Cupcake World, the first standalone bakery created by a popular local purveyor of all things sweet, is opening soon.
With more than 14 signature flavors, Cupcake World will feature a cupcake bar where you can build your own baked masterpiece, seven gelato flavors, sweet and savory crepé menu and coffee and espresso drinks.
There’s also – wait for it – a sprinkle wall.
You can check it all out when the shop opens from 2-6 p.m. on Nov. 5. The shop will be giving away free cupcakes and gelato while supplies last. There will also be live music.
“We can’t think of a better location than Coral Gables to bring our bakery café. We hope to bring sweeter days and fun to the community with our treats,” said founder Iris Casanova, a self-taught cupcake-master whose mottos are “There is no such thing as too much glitter,” “Fondant is a fonDON’T” and “Always eat dessert first.”
And we think to ourselves: what a wonderful world.
