Sweet tooth? Try Velvet Cravings!

Have you had a chance to check out the new cupcake shop in Downtown Billings yet? I had walked or driven by Velvet Cravings (located at 225 North Broadway) dozens of times, but hadn’t ventured in to check out their cupcakes until today. I had an afternoon meeting with some volunteers, so it was the perfect opportunity to splurge on a special treat – it is December, after all! I asked for a variety, and was thrilled with the options — here’s what I got… aren’t they beautiful!?!

The cupcake flavors range from traditional chocolate and white to maple bacon (top left in the picture) to Root Beer or Huck Finn (huckleberry, of course!). Antonia, the baker/owner, told me that she’s always transitioning flavors based on the season. That means that you could go in often, and always find something new to try!

One of the seasonal flavors featured when I went in was the pomegranate, which were lovely pomegranate white chocolate cake with white wine buttercream, topped with actual pomegranate kernels (is that what you call a piece of pomegranate?) that provided wonderful, surprising pops of flavor.

Velvet Cravings doesn’t just do cupcakes though, you can get any cupcake flavor in a full-sized cake (see their website for more info: www.velvetcravings.com), and they also have beautiful trays of holiday cookies – just in case you’re looking for a special treat to send someone… or to take home and eat yourself!

Speaking of the holidays, Velvet Cravings will be celebrating their Grand Opening Friday, December 7 during the Christmas Stroll – stop by anytime between 11am and 9pm for samples, drinks and prizes!

Oh, and if you’re wondering, they’re true to their name — the cupcakes are definitely velvety. And I’m certainly craving more. :) Enjoy!
