Owner Sharon Tobasco’s inspiration comes from two places: her mother, and her first Easy Bake Oven. How this gave way to a cupcake confectionary is not quite clear to us, but we don’t care – as long as she keeps making cupcakes like these! The champagne pear bellini and cookie dough cupcakes are recommended.

Ok, we know they’re better known for their stellar sandwiches, but do yourself a favor and try one of their cupcakes. Their approach to the cupcake is devilish: they simply give you a smaller version of the incredible full-sized cakes they make. We know it may be difficult to have just the cupcake here… in fact we’d recommend a broad exploration of the place for your lunch and dessert needs.

The Cupcake Spot

3225 S MacDill Ave. #103
Tampa, Fl 33629
813.839.7077

Inventive flavors, freshly made, with frosting piled on so high some patrons may feel the need to scrape some off (which is inconceivable to us). The Elvis (banana cupcake, peanut butter frosting, with a pompadour of chocolate) is recommended. Be warned, their fresh cupcakes often sell out, so it’s not a lock you’ll get the flavor you’ve got your heart set on if you arrive later in the day.
