We just love cupcake!
On October 1, 2015, Anna launched her A.Sweets Girl Cupcake Truck and now you can find Anna on the streets of Chicago daliy! A.Sweets Girl is in the business of creating handmade, specialty gourmet cupcakes with a unique twist and introducing these new, imaginative creations to Chicago!
What sets A.Sweets Girl apart from other cupcake shops is that not only do we offer innovative, original flavors that bring a refreshing update to the sweets we have all grown up eating, but we are also committed to using only fresh, real ingredients of the highest quality. We utilize pure extracts and incorporate seasonal ingredients throughout the year. Our cupcakes have NO artificial ingredients and NO preservatives!
A.Sweets Girl also use artisan techniques and make all our cupcakes from scratch each day using our own unique recipe. And from scratch to us does not mean using pre-made flour mixes or artificial or "natural" icings that come out of a bucket that contain chemical preservatives and stabilizers. A.Sweets Girl is committed to made-from-scratch and bake all our cupcakes daily using raw ingredients and hand decorate each with our signature buttercreams made with real butter!
Since we take the extra time to put in the TLC in all our cupcakes, we are limited on the number of cupcakes we can make the night before, thus we are a small-batch shop with a set number of cupcakes available each day. Consequently, we do sell out fast and we always advise our customers to come early to guarantee a sweet treat! As a small, growing business, we are utilizing all our resources to keep up with demand and will always offer as many cupcakes as we can, without sacrificing quality.
