If you want to just pop in for a sinfully delicious snack or need cupcakes for weddings or events, Scratch is by far the best place to go. We had a couple hundred mini's at my wedding and they disappeared in a matter of minutes. They also kick butt for the wife when she's angry that you didn't finish the... More

I first heard of this place when searching for a bakery to order cupcakes for a birthday party. Customer service was excellent. So many selections, it was hard to choose. Since my first purchase, which cupcakes were a huge hit at the bd party, I have visited Scratch 3 more times to purchase 3 dozen cupcakes each time. Once for... More

There are so many flavors. You will find one you love. My favorite is wedding cake. When I stayed at the Blackhawk hotel and was traveling with my Mom they delivered to the hotel in advance if my late arrival.

I travel the midwest, and buy pastries, cupcakes, treats, etc. Scratch was a nice combination of quality and excellent pricing compared to what I would pay elsewhere. Will 100% stop here when in the area again. I give them a 5 based on how they compared to other similar bakeries, pastry shops.

I come here often, particularly because they get the Sweet Rewards Gluten Free Bakery items which are amazing, although the serving sizes keep getting smaller on those. I've had the Scratch Cupcakes as well, and they are VERY well made and absolutely delicious, particularly the frosting. The only reason this gets an average rating is due to the atmosphere in...

Hi Jenna, Thank you for taking the time to write a review! I'm glad to hear you enjoy our cupcakes (especially our Gluten Free partner - we love them too!!) and appreciate that you've tried our other products as well...I'm sad to hear you don't enjoy them (our Cupcake Shake nearly outsells cupcakes in the summer!!), but absolutely understand personal...

Very popular cupcake bakery downtown. I had remembered it from our last visit there about 7 yrs ago. Cupcakes are awesome and very inexpensive. Nice service. Great selection of flavors.

You'll have a hard time choosing!! Always have to bring back Scratch Cupcakes for kids and Grandkids when we get to Cedar Falls. Huge variety of choices and it changes frequently. The Best!

Remarkable range of flavors. Butter creme frosting. Moist fresh baked cake. Butter creme frosting! A perfect little bakery boutique where you can eat a great snack or stock up and be the hero of your office or family. A great last stop after a meal at one of the great Main street restaurants.
