From the moment you walk in the door, the smell of freshly baked cupcakes let you know that you have made the right choice for your dessert. Many flavors yo choose from, best to get two, one for now and one for later.

The Peppered Cupcake (TPC) surely does not stand for “Treat People Courteously”. We went there to enjoy cupcakes and the lady that waited on us was rude. Immediately while looking the cupcake options, she condescending told us that the glass was very fragile and to...More

Best cupcakes ever! We tried the banana pudding cupcake, the almond joy cupcake, & the turtle cupcake and all were so good. Definitely recommend.

These cupcakes were very good and unique. The downgraded star is due to one of them having coffee flavor and we hate coffee!! We took one bite and spit it out. The one issue..not knowing what’s in all of them.

We had the bourbon pecan pie and the berry & cream. Wow, just wow. I don’t want to know how much butter is in them. We’ve never had cupcakes like those!

The Peppered Cupcake is a gourmet cupcakery with 2 locations in the Wilmington vicinity. 260 Racine Dr., Ste 7 & downtown 105 S. Front St. Our mission is to provide even the most sophisticated palette with creative, exciting, irresistible, gourmet cupcakes that will give a whole new twist to the cupcake concept. Each of our gourmet cupcake recipes are baked fresh & from scratch daily using fresh ingredients. Off the hook! Our slogan is what inspires us to think outside of the box when it comes to our next creation. We are constantly inventing and reinventing our recipes to please our sophisticated Foodies. Our cupcakes are unique combinations inspired by some of our favorite dishes. Some sweet, some savory, some a combination of both. Southern influences have also made an impact by incorporating a Southern flare into some of our cupcakes such as the Sweet Tater & Molasses with pork cracklings. We also use liquors and liqueurs & sometimes they make it into the cakes;) Need we say more?
