Sugar Bliss Cake Boutique

Bring on the bliss

I first spotted pastry chef Teresa Ging’s picture perfect Sugar Bliss cupcakes at an event last summer, and couldn’t wait for the boutique to open earlier this year. Located across from Macy’s, it’s definitely more minimalist cupcake “boutique” then bubbie’s kitchen, but the cupcakes still taste fresh and homemade. They feature 5 daily flavors (from orange creamsicle to chocolate cappuccino) and seasonal specials all donning luscious flower petal frosting formations. The beauty of offering mini cupcakes is that you can scarf several varieties and still have room for a few of their signature $1 frosting shots (it’s exactly what it sounds like). I loved the chocolate-peanut butter with moist, airy chocolate cake and an intense peanut butter buttercream frosting I would’ve downed in pint glass over a mere shot. The red velvet won out as well, and I should’ve gotten the full size to experience more of the cream cheese frosting and sweet red velvet cake. Sugar Bliss gets all sweet on Cinco de Mayo this weekend with a dark chocolate cupcake with chocolate cinnamon chile buttercream and a Red Hot topping, available through May 5. 115 N. Wabash, 312.845.9669.

  1. Chicago has turned me into a true cupcake lover – we have cupcakes everywhere these days! Sugar Bliss is delightful. What I can’t get over is how pretty the frosting looks!

    Have you tried Phoebe’s in Lakeview yet? It’s small, without the organization of Sugar Bliss or Swirlz, but the cupcakes are delicious. I recommend the lemon-lavender one. Heavenly.
