Cupcake Endulgers’ Boutique is Atlanta’s premier cupcakery. We offer delectable goodness in a petite treat. Light, fluffy and moist gourmet creations for every palate to enjoy. We pride ourselves in using all high quality, natural ingredients; including organic products when possible.
” We became good friends, working in the school system for years. We explored infinite possibilities of how to continue serving children as innovative entrepreneurs. While jabbering one evening on the phone, as we do quite often, we discovered that we both acquired a new love for baking. We created masterpieces by mixing, frosting, learning and perfecting recipes as we go. Before long, we designed light, fluffy and moist cupcakes to suit any palate.
Now we have the best of both worlds, baking for children, including the one that is still inside of YOU!”
” We pride ourselves in using all high quality, natural ingredients; including organic products when possible. Committed to baking daily in small batches, our cupcakes are fashionably scrumptious!! Walk on down our runway and indulge in an Endulge Cupcake. It is nothing more than divine ’til the END.”
