Cupcakes have become a national phenomenon in recent years—but Gigi’s Cupcakes in particular take baking to the next level. At Gigi’s, cupcakes are works of art. Moist cakes are blank canvasses for delicious towers of icing, decorated beautifully according to flavor. To fit everyone’s fancies, different batches of cupcakes are baked every morning. From the number-one best seller “Wedding Cake,” a white cake topped with vanilla buttercream frosting and white nonpareils, to twists on America’s staple desserts, like “Midnight Magic,” a devil’s-food cake with dark chocolate chips topped with a chocolate buttercream frosting and chocolate chips, Gigi’s variety never disappoints.

Inspired by other favorite desserts, the cupcakes are single-serving delicacies that have been transformed from cakes, pies, candies, and fruits. Among creamy “Carrot Cake,” “Scarlett’s Red Velvet Cake,” and “Strawberry Shortcake,” your cake bases are covered.  “Chocolate Turtle,” “Peanut Butter Cup,” “Double Stuff” and “Salted Caramel” cupcakes embody their respective candies—if they had been baked to perfection. They’re somehow even more delicious than their namesakes. 

This fall, new cupcakes make the list, like “Bananas Foster,” a rich banana cake with spiced rum and spiced rum cream cheese frosting, drizzled with a brown sugar sauce.  Another new addition is the “German Chocolate Cake” cupcake, with caramel, coconut and pecan filling and chocolate cream cheese frosting, topped with dollop of filling on a sweet, dark German chocolate cake. The fall menu also includes daily cupcake-sized authentic cheesecakes, in “Classic,” “Chocolate Chip,” and “Turtle,” and occasional specials, such as “Cookies and Cream,” “Lemon,” and “Raspberry.” In addition to cupcakes and cheesecakes, Gigi’s is introducing a new line of gourmet stuffed cookies and morning muffins to make your selection even harder. 

With the holidays coming fast, try Gigi’s cupcake takes on classic Thanksgiving pies, like “Praline Pecan Pie,” “Apple Pie,” “Coconut Cream Pie,” “Chocolate Cream Pie,” “Kentucky Bourbon,” and “Pumpkin White Chocolate,” which will be available by special order or in-store the week of Thanksgiving and sporadically throughout November as long as supplies don’t run out…which they do almost every day. As always, Gigi’s recommends ordering ahead or online, just in case. 

Gigi’s Cupcakes is easy to find, with three stores in Chattanooga—their main store at 1906 Gunbarrel Road, and two satellite stores in Hixson on Hwy. 153 across from Target and in the historic Northshore District at 330 Frazier Avenue. The new Northshore location is the only Gigi’s Cupcakes in the country out of 95 stores that offers frozen yogurt in addition to the full menu of cupcakes, cheesecakes, cookies, and muffins. And, at Gigi’s,

every Friday is Gluten-Free Friday. Mini-cupcakes are also sold by the dozen at every store for those who like to savor a bite at a time. To see more specials, follow your local Gigi’s on Facebook, and visit or call the nearest location to create custom-themed cupcakes and specialty cakes for parties, corporate events, weddings, showers…or any other time a little something sweet is needed!
