Molly's Cupcakes in Lincoln Park whenever I needed a cupcake fix. True, there were cupcake eateries closer than the city but they just didn't come close to the perfection that Molly's served up daily. I'm talking about filled cupcakes. Anyone can whip up a nice frosting but when you had a ganache or marshmallow filling...yum. The Ron Bennington was a personal favorite: chocolate cake, peanut butter filling, chocolate ganache, and crushed butterscotch topping. I decided that it would be my quest to find a filled-cupcake maker in Nashville but I didn't have to search far. Gigi's Cupcakes has it all! The cupcake specials change daily and are listed on the website. I visited yesterday for the first time. There were no filled offerings but I was more than pleased with my options. I decided on the Strawberry Shortcake (white cake baked with fresh strawberries, topped with a strawberry buttercream frosting and red sugar crystals), Peanut Butter Cup (milk chocolate cake topped with peanut butter frosting and honey roasted peanuts all drizzled with chocolate), and Texas Milk Chocolate (milk chocolate cake topped with milk chocolate frosting, chocolate sprinkles, and a bright yellow fondant star.) Since I start work on Monday, I thought I'd get a couple of after work treats.
locations in a bunch of places- other parts of Tennessee, but there's also one in Alabama, Texas, Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi, Las Vegas and Denver.
