Attention dessert devotees- December 15 marks National Cupcake Day! No matter what your favorite flavor or ideal frosting-to-cake ratio, join with other sweets lovers in this celebration of cake. Trouble is, there are countless bakeries and thousands of cupcake varieties. Here are a few of the top sweet spots where you can pay homage to this sweet treat.

Sprinkles in Los Angeles is a Hollywood favorite, blending traditional European baking with an atmosphere that’s modern chic. Expect only the finest ingredients like Madagascar vanilla Bourbon and fresh-out-of-the oven baked goods that will practically melt in your mouth.

Meanwhile, Magnolia Bakery of Sex and the City fame is keeping New Yorkers with a sweet tooth a bay. Even with several locations, tourists and locals still line up for their scrumptious cupcakes. The buttery aroma may be maddening, but every bite is worth the wait.

Phoenix is the home of the delicious Butter and Me Cupcakery, famous for their maple and BACON cupcake.

In Washington D.C., Cake Love is a must-stop for any dessert enthusiast. Their red velvet with cream cheese frosting is legendary.

Finally, across the pond is Cox Cookies & Cake in London. Founded by Eric Lanlard and Patrick Cox, this Soho spot serves up decadent sweets like their “Bling” cupcake (topped with diamond-esque sparkling sugar) and their “Black Skull” cupcake (sporting goth black frosting and a jeweled skull garnish).

Of course, there’s no need to pick just one. Celebrate the day by treating yourself to one, two, or maybe a few more!
