For a departure from birthday cake, how about cupcakes? Sure, it’s the same basic premise, but the world of possibilities is endless. Plus, cupcakes allow you to enjoy more than one.
There are places in Myrtle Beach that have perfected them.
If you’re on the Grand Strand to celebrate your special day, try one of these places. Mix and match, sample what others pick, or trust in your favorite. Did you know there’s actually a right way to enjoy a cupcake, though?
How did we carry on so long without knowing this? If you’ve had cupcake frosting up your nose before (don’t lie!), this list is for you. Prepare to have your mind blown.
Giants or minis? Traditional toppings or exotic? The choice is yours.
