It’s day 34 of “365 Things to do in Cincinnati” and we are downtown visiting the Abby Girl Sweets Cupcakery.
Located just outside the lobby of the Hilton (Cincinnati Netherland Plaza), Abby Girl Sweets is just a short walk from Fountain Square. They serve up all kinds of luscious cupcakes, all made from scratch.
This is a family owned and operated business. Husband and wife team (Nathan and Andrea Thompson) are the baker and decorator, respectively. And Mom, Karen, runs the shop.
The cupcakery has a variety of cupcakes each day. You can choose from their “always available” varieties such as their signature strawberry or fan favorite “Double Trouble”. Or you can try out one of the daily special varieties. And that’s what I did…
This was today’s special variety – a banana cupcake with a chocolate shell topping and a large dollop of Madagascar Vanilla Bean frosting on top. The cupcake packed a huge banana taste. The cake itself was very moist. It had just the right amount of chocolate frosting/shell on top. And you could see the vanilla specs in the frosting. It was AMAZINGLY good!
The cupcakery has a few tables if you would like to eat in. Or you can take cupcakes to go in the cutest little cupcake container…
