Found: Capote Cupcake

Posted by Holly Whitfield | September 16th 2009 116 0

For you, one Capote cupcake from Muddy's Bakeshop. It's got chocolate cake on the bottom and vanilla buttercream icing on the top, and yes, it's just as delicious as it looks.

Actually, everything at Muddy's is delicious. I have yet to have a cupcake or cookie or slice of pie that doesn't taste amazing.Ok, so all of the cookies don't look perfect, and the icing isn't exact, but that just adds to the charm.

Walking in the door, the first thing you'll notice is how absolutely adorable everything in the shop is. From the cupcakes to the furniture to the aprons for sale and the employees, every single thing in the store is insanely quirky and cute.

Muddy's is located in a shopping center in East Memphis, which seems a little strange. The shop seems like it should be in Midtown. It's probably good that it's centrally located – they're an equidistant baked goods provider.

Just in case you needed another reason to visit the bakeshop, Kat (the owner) loves Memphis:

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    I love Muddy’s! I’m glad you do too. :-) I can’t get enough of their peanut butter cookies… or toffee bars… or pies,… I love it all too.

    When people assume all things fun, historical, and wonderful are in midtown Memphis, they close their minds and limit their lives.
    Honestly. :) Muddy’s is great!
