How I heard of this place: When my husband and I decided to participate in the Ski-to-Sea weekend festivities, we found ourselves also participating in a cupcake-off; three local cupcakery’s were completing for the best cupcake in Whatcom County. Cupcakes Like It Sweet was there, sampling their mini Mumsie, chocolate cake made with Valhrona cocoa, dipped in chocolate ganache and topped with a cream cheese frosting & chocolate flakes. The next day, I was back, at the suggestion of my only friends from Lynden.

Type of cuisine: Cupcakes. Minis and regular sized treats with daily specials.

Ambiance: Set in a miniature strip mall, Cupcakes is easily spotted with its “NOW Open Sundays” sign. We entered to find clean, yet rustic hard wood floors meeting the white trim at the floor of the sky blue walls. The white furniture easily complements the sleek yet whimsical, pretty yet approachable space.

What I ordered: The youngest in our party selected the Vanilla ($2.50) with vanilla frosting and sprinkles, moist vanilla cake topped with Madagascar vanilla buttercream.

My we-go-way-back-to-high-school friend and I each ordered a mini ($1.50 each) of the Chocolate Mint, chocolate cake made with Valhrona cocoa includes mint cookies in the batter, a light mint buttercream frosting, and it’s topped with an Andes mint,

as well as the White Chocolate Raspberry, vanilla cake filled with raspberry preserves, frosted with our vanilla buttercream and white chocolate shavings.

What I loved: Mint always wins in my book, but the raspberry preserves came in mighty close.

Why I loved it: A fun-frilled space with clean colors and lines, temptingly presented, and not easily turned down cupcakes to enjoy among friends. Not to mention being served by the baker and store owner!
