I’m back with the second review in my Best Dessert in VA series! This time I’m writing about my favorite cupcakery in the world… Extraordinary Cupcakes! If you’ve ever been to Williamsburg, they’re located just a little ways up Richmond Road from Colonial Williamsburg. While there are plenty of cute and tasty cafes in the colonial area, I highly recommend taking the 5-minute drive here for a treat that is both much more affordable and delicious.
I’ve actually tried 25/28 of their cupcakes so you can trust me when I say this is a must go-to in Virginia! I’ve never had a “bad” flavor, but there are certainly some I like more than others (more on that in a little bit). They also make all of their flavors in Gluten-Free versions (just call in an order if you want to make sure you get a particular flavor)😊! Okay, I’m going to stop talking and start reviewing now!
So, there are certain flavors they carry every day, certain flavors they carry on certain days of the week, monthly flavors, and seasonal flavors. Here’s the menu so you can see what’s baking today! I guess you can already know I’ll be giving Extraordinary 5 stars for taste… but I think I’ll only be choosing 5-star taste experiences for my Best Desserts series! I’ve gone ahead and listed my absolute favorite cupcakes flavors below, though! Oh, and they also have a few other desserts on certain days, like cheesecake, banana pudding, and whoopie pies.
Each cupcake is about $5, and considering the size, you could easily eat them over two days (but of course we don’t). When I say these are some big cupcakes, I mean that my mom and I plan a light dinner ahead of time to make sure we have room to finish them! I’m certainly always more than happy to give up an Abe Lincoln for this deliciousness!
Okay, if I decide to name a restaurant as one of the best places to get dessert in VA, it’s pretty likely to get five stars in every category! In addition to the very cute decor (see later photos), this cupcakery has some wonderfully unique flavors, and cupcake schedule! While it pains me to know that I can only get the Brilliant Banana Foster cupcake in March, it’s also pretty exciting to try the next flavor of the month!
Like with all shops that you end up visiting at least once a month, you come across some wonderful employees, and some that aren’t quite as wonderful. However, XO Cupcakes certainly has a majority of wonderful! Pro tip: Even if they don’t actually serve the cupcake you want on the day that you go, it’s still worth asking! Sometimes, they already have the frosting/cake made up and won’t mind quickly putting it together for you.
