BEST Cupcakes in Austin!

homepagebannerWe spend every day in the kitchen, working to craft the perfect cupcake – something that’s fresh, natural, and decadent – and it’s a job we take very seriously.

Old, young, tall, short, silly, serious – doesn’t matter who you are, the right cupcake will make you smile. We want each customer to taste something special when they bite into one of our treats, because for us, it’s about more than just baking something yummy. It’s also about making our customers happy. 


Whether you’re an adult with a sophisticated palette or a kid (at heart?) who’s all about the sprinkle, we’ve got a cupcake (or two) that will satisfy your sweet tooth!

Sweeten Your Next Event

At Shortcakes, a large part of our business centers around catering and special events. Whether you’re hosting a corporate meeting, a wedding shower or a birthday party for your little one, we’ll cater your cupcakes to perfection. Your guests will love every bite.

We even deliver, too – taking one more thing off your to do list and leaving you free to concentrate on putting together the perfect party!

Creative, Quirky, Custom Made

Over the years, we’ve created some amazing, imaginative recipes for our cupcakes… and we continue to create more every day. Whether you want something that offers adventure, complexity, quirky goodness or just plain old chocolate and vanilla – we’ve got all your cupcake needs covered.

The creative variety on our menu almost certainly offers something for your palette – but if you find yourself looking for more, just let us know what you had in mind. We’ll work with you to craft a cupcake recipe that’s exactly right for your particular taste buds.

Ditch the Ordinary for the Extraordinary

Cupcakes shops are a dime a dozen these days, but most of them offer stale, boring flavors without any real pizzazz. At Shortcakes, our gourmet cupcakes are a decadent indulgence for any customer – and there’s no reason why you should settle for anything less. There’s a difference between something special and something that’s just so-so. Don’t settle! Come to Shortcakes and see the difference!
