If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know how I love cupcakes. In fact, for each half marathon I do toward my Fifty States Half Marathon Challenge, I try to find a local cupcake store to review. This post is going to be all about cupcake locations in downtown Charleston, SC. My friend Michael and I have been plotting out the idea to develop a cupcake tour of Charleston for some time now. He and I would walk at lunch for exercise, and keep passing hole in the wall cupcake shops, so we decided that we must try all these in one day. It has taken us about three years to put it together, and this past Saturday we took on the challenge. With the support of our wives and family, we all ventured out into downtown Charleston to see how stuffed we could get!
When we began the day, we had a list of 10 cupcake shops and/or bakeries in Charleston. Well at least they claimed to have cupcakes. Well, 3 on the list did not have cupcakes, so we removed them from the list. Another on the list was closed when we arrived, so I will review that in a negative light, because we were there before the documented closing time. There are other excellent cupcake shops in the lowcountry; however, because of logistics, we limited this tour to only stops in the downtown Charleston area (besides the final stop because of its uniqueness).
With that said, it is on with the show.
