Was looking for something sweet after having sushi at Yoshi next door. Ordered a Key Lime and Chocolate/Chocolate cupcake. They were outstanding. They dress the cupcake once you order your flavor. They also have several gluten free choices. Can’t wait to go back.

Stopped in on a gorgeous day out and about and so happy we did! Thinking it may be the best cupcake we've ever eaten and such a pleasant experience with the actual baker! We'll certainly be back!

The Peppered Cupcake is a gourmet cupcakery with 2 locations in the Wilmington vicinity. 260 Racine Dr., Ste 7 & downtown 105 S. Front St. Our mission is to provide even the most sophisticated palette with creative, exciting, irresistible, gourmet cupcakes that will give a whole new twist to the cupcake concept. Each of our gourmet cupcake recipes are baked fresh & from scratch daily using fresh ingredients. Off the hook! Our slogan is what inspires us to think outside of the box when it comes to our next creation. We are constantly inventing and reinventing our recipes to please our sophisticated Foodies. Our cupcakes are unique combinations inspired by some of our favorite dishes. Some sweet, some savory, some a combination of both. Southern influences have also made an impact by incorporating a Southern flare into some of our cupcakes such as the Sweet Tater & Molasses with pork cracklings. We also use liquors and liqueurs & sometimes they make it into the cakes;) Need we say more?
