 You can find the perfect sweets this Valentine’s Day at the Gourmet Cupcake Shoppe located in downtown Mount Pleasant at 201 E Broadway St. From cupcakes to chocolate covered strawberries, they have you covered.

Owner Carrie Fisher has been preparing for Valentine’s Day since last year. “It’s by far our biggest holiday out of the year. Our team has been working on the menu since early last year to ensure everything goes accordingly and we can give our customers exactly what they ask for,” she said.

The Gourmet Cupcake Shoppe employees are anticipating on baking 8,000-10,000 cupcakes for all four locations: Midland, Saginaw, Bay City and Mount Pleasant.

Watch as bakers of the Gourmet Cupcake Shoppe, Brianna Saocal and Brittany Buchinger, take us through a step by step demonstration of their delicious raspberry Italian butter cream cupcake. This cupcake consists of a vanilla cake and raspberry cobbler, all made with fresh ingredients.
