Description: The Peppered Cupcake is a gourmet cupcakery. 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 and 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 and sometimes they make it into the cakes;) Need we say more?

I came to the Peppered Cupcake and didn't order
a " peppered" cupcake. What the heck? Not like me! I got dazzled by the other flavors, panicked, and "settled for" a sweet potato molasses cupcake. It was excellent cake. Moist and had an icing filling...two thumbs up. The frosting was smooth sweet potato, drizzled with black molasses. My wife got some chocolate on chocolate gizmo that she raved about, but I wasn't listening because I was inhaling my own cake as I fought to savor it...

And I missed my chance to get one of the cakes the placed is NAMED for! Fail, on my part. But rest assured that I will rectify that next time I visit Wilmington. I think the things cost about 4 dollars apiece. I'd give more, and I don't waste a lot of money! Cue up all 3 pepper flavors when I return! And maybe a chocolatey gizmo for the wife! Bananas Foster is happening, too...Can't wait to see you nice folks again!

This is easily one of the BEST cupcakes I've ever had. Puts some NYC joints to shame. Nice family establishment with some of the best cupcakes around. Wish I had more stomachs to enjoy it all, will be back when we return next year.

We wanted to do a food tour but were not available when it was offered. So, we created our own!!

Stop 5-Peppered Cupcake for dessert. I visited this shop about 2 years ago and was totally blown away by the flavors and freshness! Sadly, I was slightly disappointed in the cupcakes this time. I ordered Bourbon Pecan Pie and Blueberry Habanero cupcakes. The Bourbon Pecan Pie was good but no taste of Bourbon. Blueberry Habanero, very disappointing, no pop of heat and blueberries just didn't really have a taste. Additionally, the cake portion was a little dry. Not sure if I will stop here again.

We bought 3 flavors. All were great. Very moist and fresh! Lemon poppy, bourbon pecan pie and mango pepper. I would definitely go back.
