Sweets & Treats: Pretty Tasty Cupcake Boutique’s Salted Caramel Cupcake


Pretty Tasty Cupcake Boutique is the place to go for gourmet, peanut and tree nut-free cupcakes in Cape May! The creative cupcakes are equal parts pretty and tasty, and since they are peanut and tree nut-free, they are safe to be enjoyed by anyone who normally worries about their nut allergies!

Pretty Tasty Cupcake Boutique opened five years ago when owner, Erica Young, started after baking peanut-free cupcakes for her son to bring with him to birthday parties. Before long, Erica was making cupcakes for the entire birthday party at the request of other parents. After some time baking in her kitchen, she saw the storefront in Carpenters Square Mall and decided it was time to open her own store and spread the nut-free cupcakes with the rest of Cape May!

Pretty Tasty Cupcakes has over 30 different cupcake flavors, including Hot Fudge Sundae, Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie, and Strawberries & Cream. On any given day, you will find six delicious flavors in the cupcake case – three vanilla and three chocolate. On Saturdays, there are gluten-free cupcakes in the case, but you can always custom order gluten-free cupcakes, too.

Enjoy the fan-favorite Salted Caramel cupcake creation, which has a chocolate cupcake dipped in chocolate ganache, filled with caramel, and sprinkled with sea salt. The cupcake is then frosted with vanilla buttercream and drizzled with caramel and chocolate. Yum! For the vanilla (or pink) fans, the Carrie Bradshaw is a must-try. The Carrie Bradshaw is made with a vanilla cupcake, filled with vanilla pudding center, and topped with pink vanilla buttercream with a pink chocolate candy on top. These cupcakes almost look too good to eat, but you won’t regret trying one of these tasty cupcakes!

Next time you’re getting a cupcake craving, stop by the shop or call to place an order and satisfy your sweet tooth! Pretty Tasty Cupcake Boutique is open from 12-3 p.m. during the summer. The shop is closed in the off-season, but they do accept orders that can be picked up or delivered.
