Miglet’s Cupcake Shop – SF Bay Area
There’s quite a buzz around the new San Francisco Bay Area Gluten Free Bakery, Miglet’s Cupcake Shop. Only open three weeks, I had found a few articles online and a tv news report about this new Cupcakery begun by Katie Alin, a former Celiac camp counselor, Whole Foods Bakery worker, and daughter of a celiac mom.
I added Miglets to my GPS today, knowing I’d be passing through Danville, CA on a road trip, They weren’t open when I called, but Katie generously invited me to stop by and get some cupcakes ahead of the crowd they were expecting later for their buy one get one free sale.
Upon arrival, we were waved in past the closed sign. A fully stocked freezer to the right was full with Mariposa Bakery items, Udi’s, O’Doughs, and a few other GF bready goodies, but the real treats were in the case straight ahead. Beautiful cupcakes in many flavors and colors.
I picked the four that Katie recommended. First, the best-seller Red Velvet, decorated for the holiday weekend with blue, ultra sweet frosting and patriotic sprinkles. It was very moist and tasty, although my personal preference would have been cream cheese frosting.
The second taste was a yummy Chocolate Cream. It had really rich chocolate cake, filled with rich cream, chocolate frosting and a chocolate cream filled cooked on top.
The third was a wonderful Snickerdoodle Cupcake. Wow! Loved the cinnamon cake, creamy cinnamon frosting and bite of one of Miglet’s moist Snickerdoodle cookies on top.
There was a Lemonade Cupcake and Lemon Blueberry for my last choice. Katie recommended the Lemon Blueberry. I took it thinking it would be my least favorite, but it actually turned out to be my favorite. The large, sweet blueberries made the light cake extremely moist and the lemony cream cheese frosting was heavenly. This one was the perfect mix of sweet and tart with the just right amount of light and creamy. (Sorry, it was gone before I could get a photo of it.)
Since this was not a regular business day, I missed out on trying the other amazing sounding goodies that Miglet’s makes – breads, cakes, quiches, pies, cookies, tarts and more – but next time I’m passing through Danville or near one of the other Bay Area stores below, I’ll definitely get more of these wonderful gluten free treats!
Where to Buy: There are a few other Bay Area locations where you can get Miglet’s goodies as well as in their cute little Danville dedicated gluten free bakery. They don’t ship, so stop by and visit if you live nearby or are passing through the Bay Area on vacation.
