Gourmet cupcake shops are finding a new home all over Pittsburgh and I ventured to Gigi Cupcakes in the McCandless Shopping center in North Hills off of McKnight Road.
It has a few tables and a cooler full of soda and drinks. Just straight ahead of the door was a long glass case filled with the most amazing interesting cupcakes. The flavors change with the seasons. For instance in the fall there was a Bourbon cupcake.
I went during holiday shopping and was determined to try one one my own after a few friends raved about it. They had their holiday flavors like Christmas Tree and Snowman. I stuck to a regular Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough one was Chocolate cake with cookie dough icing, chocolate chips and a cookie on top. It was amazing and I even waited a day to eat it, silly me.
Gigi’s Cupcakes also carry Mini Cupcakes, Cheesecakes, a line of Gluten Free Cupcakes, Loaves and Stuffed Cookies. If you buy five cupcakes you get one free and they have special email deals and prizes on Facebook.
