Thank you, Durham!



The Cupcake Bar is a bakery specializing in cupcakes. We mix up fresh, delicious cupcakes inspired by our favorite cocktails and beverages. For Today’s Flavors, check our menu. We also offer coffee, milkshakes and other sweet treats.

We Bake Fresh, We Heart Local

The Cupcake Bar was started by sisters Katie and Anna in 2008. We were raised on homemade and have been baking since we were old enough to hold a whisk. We make our cupcakes in small batches every day using whole eggs, unbleached flours, whole milk, cane sugar, natural fruits and flavorings, and local and organic ingredients.

We proudly use Maple View Farms milk and ice cream, free-range NC eggs, NC-milled flour, products from Chatham Hill Winery and Fullsteam brewery and NC-grown strawberries, peaches and herbs. And we are delighted to serve Joe Van Gogh coffee.
