“Spectacular Cupcakes”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

I have to say, these cupcakes are probably the best I have ever had. The cake is moist, tasty, and not too dense. The frosting, especially the buttercream, is just, asdfghjkl, I can't even describe how sumptuous and delightful it is. I ABSOLUTELY recommend this bake shop.
They also sell other baked goods (brownies, whoopie pies, etc.). Another one of their great selling points are the beautiful cakes that they make for various occasions. I have never personally had one, but if they are as good as their cupcakes, they are certainly worth a trip to Middleton.
This bake shop is also exceptional in that they have a wide variety of scrumptious vegan/gluten free items that are just as delicious as the regular food. I have a relative who has a very limited diet due to health issues, and I believe she could have a cupcake from Bloom without any problem.
So, to conclude my very spirited review of this bake shop, I encourage you to, if you are ever in the Madison/Middleton area, visit Bloom Bake Shop. You will absolutely not regret it!

“Sweet treats”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

Usually stop at Gigi’s for cupcakes but wanted to give this one a chance. Loved the cupcakes. Perfect size and not too much frosting. While they didn’t have as much of a flavor selection as I had hoped, I was happy to splurge on the other treats like a salted caramel brownie and whoopie pie instead. Loved that it was cute and local.

“Heavenly cupcakes but on the pricey side”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Bloom is such a cute little bakery! It smells absolutely heavenly when you walk in. The bakery is modern yet classy. The layout of the shop wasn't great - there wasn't enough seats and it seemed a bit small. We had good interactions with the people working there, they seemed nice and friendly. They had a lot of gluten free options and non-gluten free options and ALL of them looked so delicious. We finally settled on getting a chocolate salted caramel cupcake (around $3) which was one of the best cupcakes I've had in a long time. I would definitely recommend Bloom for the taste of their cupcakes but the price brings it down a bit.

“Overpriced dry grocery bought pastries”
Reviewed 26 January 2013 via mobile

Way overpriced for the "quality". Bought a dry cupcake and brownie. Decorations are below average. Staff was nice and friendly. Not open on Sunday or Monday which is annoying. Not worth your time, go to Clasen's instead.

“How does this place continue to hold on?”
Reviewed 17 January 2013 via mobile

Not that it is a bad place at all - but with a product line of only whoopie pies and cupcakes, I don't know how they do it. The owner is a gem so that must be the secret. She reminds me of the lead character in Weeds - so maybe it is really a "fakery" ;-)! The cupcakes are pretty good and they could use a coffee maker (they do French press only). I wish they would expand into an actual bakery.
