Jilly's Cupcake Bar

8509 Delmar Blvd. Ladue, MO 63124 | Ladue | 314-993-5455

Location Description:

The cupcakes at Jilly's aren't decorated so much as crafted, the precise swirls of buttercream bejeweled with shaved chocolate, peanut brittle or slivers of candied carrots. They are arranged on towers of concentric trays, a cityscape of spangled frosting like something out of a children's storybook. The best match style with substance, like the "Carrot Cake," moist carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and delicious slivers of candied carrot, or the decadently sweet "PB and 'J'illy," which features raspberry and peanut-butter buttercream. The menu also features breakfast and lunch fare as well as coffee and milk drinks.
