Description: The Peppered Cupcake is a gourmet cupcakery. 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 and 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 and sometimes they make it into the cakes;) Need we say more?

“BEST CUPCAKES EVER!!!!!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

I have been here multiple times now and cannot stay away. Luckily, I walk to get there to help burn off whatever calories I eat. But completely worth it! I highly recommend trying the warmed cupcakes a la mode. I'm like a kid in a candy store in there. So many unique flavors....so little time. So I just come back over and over. This is a "must stop" if you are downtown Wilmington.

“Cupcakes like art!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Most interesting and delicious cupcakes you have ever tried. This bakery has turned cupcakes into art. Not only are the beautiful, they melt in your mouth with the freshest ingredients that can be used. The Creme Brûlée used to be my favorite but there are some news I event tried yet that look awfully tempting! I mean Bourbon Pecan Pie or Lavender and Citrus? Yum!

“Cupcakes for those that want to try something unlike the run of mill flavors”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

I have been to this place twice and was absolutely blown away from the flavors that were available. Including vegan cupcakes, they have many flavors of cupcakes, one sure to satisfy your flavor pallet. Everything from a chocolate peanut butter to a tiramisu, they do not disappoint. Unlike the competition, they set themselves apart with uniqueness of flavors, the general anatomy of the cupcake with the filling is in most and the fluffiness of icing, and the TLC that you can tell is in each and every cupcake.

You can tell the owners love their craft and that goes a long way in a city like Wilmington. If you want a gourmet type of dessert experience, definitely try these guys out when out and about around town.

“Hands down, best cupcake around!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

If you don't think you like cupcakes you should try TPC. You will have a whole new view on cupcakes. Seriously their cupcakes are so delightful and decadent, different than any cupcake you have ever had. We enjoyed them when the were located in Kinston and we will drive out of the way to visit them at their new location in Wilmington anytime we are remotely close to them. They provide an outstanding product, great price, and relaxing atmosphere.
