Our latest Member Spotlight is all about cupcakes – little mini packages of happiness! Ida’s Cupcake Café has three locations in Central Oregon. Ida opened her business a little over 7 years ago here in Central Oregon. Today she has three different locations making it easy to stop by to pick out your favorite flavor!
While visiting with Ida at the location on Division I realized that there is more to a cupcake than one would imagine. Just in the little time I was there, I saw a mom and her little girl on a “girls” date enjoying the perfect little snack together. Customers were taking little boxes of love back to the office. A soon to be married couple had plates of so many samples while doing their free tasting. Proof that cupcakes connect people! As Ida mentioned, you can “say anything you want with a cupcake!” Cupcakes are perfect for bridal showers, weddings, birthdays, holidays, thank you gifts, or just because.
Ida and her team of professional artists are constantly thinking up new flavors. The never ending creativity and ideas are some of Ida’s favorite parts about being in the cupcake industry. Top sellers today are chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet. Seasonal flavors like gingerbread and Vanilla Chai Latte are quite popular as well!
With a busy location, and cupcakes coming out of the ovens by the dozen, I was curious how far in advance a bride would need to place her order. According to Ida they can do up to 2 dozen cupcakes on the same day. Tastings are encouraged and custom cakes are available for the big day!
Yet one more unique treat offered at Ida’s Cupcakes is their Cupcake Parfait. They create an eye-popping and unique dessert,
sandwiching layers of their most popular cake and frosting combinations. A must-try treat for all cupcake lovers!
If you haven’t had the chance to stop in for a cupcake lately I would highly recommend it!
