Specialties

Prairie Girl Bakery's goal is to bring to the big city the luscious taste of old fashioned cupcakes made from scratch that very day. From the first bite to the last, you will taste the difference that Jean's love of home baking adds to our menu of cupcakes. Our cupcakes taste so great because we start early every day, cracking fresh eggs and creaming real butter. We never use... more

The Best Cupcakes in Town!

There is a great variety of cupcakes and icings. They all taste delicious. It's a real treat to have these fresh cupcakes. Also, no place else has quite the same thing. There are dozens of donut and muffin shops, but Prairie Girl Bakery is unique.

I'm not generally a fan of sweets, but I was on my way to work and thought I'd take some cupcakes for my co workers to boost staff morale.

I liked that I was able to pick only the flavours that I wanted. It's also nice that they have smaller size cupcakes because that way you can have two and try two different flavours.

I was very pleased with the icing to cupcake ratio. Icing is the only... more

It's great!! Have the mini cupcakes , they're the perfect size and the icing to cake ratio is still reasonable. It's when the cupcake is bigger that it gets a bit out of hand.

The staff is fabulous, and is always so nice and enthusiastic! They are of great help when it comes to choosing the different flavors, and is fast and efficient.

Good place to go if you have a sweet tooth!

Let me start off by saying cupcakes are not my thing. After trying Prairie Girl's cupcakes, my opinion has not wavered. The cake portion is very moist, which I do appreciate, but the icing is too sweet and and piled too high.

HOWEVER, this place is awarded 4 stars from me because the cupcakes are adorable and make for an excellent gift. The people that I have given the cupcakes to have all... more

My co-worker was really nice and went to buy Prairie Girl cupcakes as a mid-day pick me up for all of us. I personally love love love red velvet cupcakes. I had purchased a dozen of the normal sized cupcakes before for my boyfriend's birthday and found that the icing was a bit overwhelming because there was so much of it. I did think the icing was too much and wasn't able to finish it.

I know there is a lot of hype about these cupcakes and tend to be a lot of people's favourites, but to me personally I'm very indifferent about them. I like visit the PATH location as it is accessible underground. The place is always packed, so I recommend ordering online beforehand to bypass the line. However, it does require 48 hours advance ordering so be sure to order ahead of time.

A cute cupcake store in the heart of the financial district. If you are not sure what you want, the mini sized cupcakes are a great option.

Never again. I bought 4 regular sized cupcakes from here on Thursday and today (Saturday) we still have two left. A big feat in our household but not really because these cupcakes suck.

The only one that is worth try is the strawberry one and it's because the icing does taste like real strawberries.
The rest are just standard cupcakes you can buy anywhere else.
I've tried cupcakes in i don't remember how many places and all of them are the same thing: a sponge type and TONS of FAT ICING, not evenr eal fruit.
Cupcakes are out of my list as a treat.

I went with high hopes -- we tried the strawberry daiquiri and the red velvet cupcakes. The cake parts of both were relatively flat, in that they looked compressed. I found the strawberry daiquiri one disappointing: it was too dense with too much icing. The red velvet one had a moister, lighter texture with nice cream cheese icing but it wasn't as good as the Costco red velvet cupcakes...

I bake a lot, so my standards are fairly high.

Gloriously decadent
June 15, 2013

At 700 calories a pop it really doesn't matter what flavor you get as you're guaranteed an insulin-shocking diabetes-contributing treat. Go early as there is a line-up between 12-3PM, and it is especially long on Friday's (1st Canadian Place location). There is a new Yorkville location at Bloor & Avenue next to Louis Vuitton.
