On a road trip to St. Louis from Kansas City this weekend, I finally had a chance to stop by The Velvet Cupcake Café, located in the Tiger Hotel in Columbia, MO. The shop is small, but includes breakfast and lunch items and a few tiny tables. The cupcake display was nice and the cupcakes looked great - large, gourmet and beautifully decorated.
There were 9 flavors at lunchtime on Sunday when we were there, so I decided to try one of each and was told that with a purchase of 10, I'd get 2 free, so we ended up getting three doubles to take to friends when we arrived back in KC.

Sorry to say I won't be stopping there again, but I did like the innovative dozen tray they came in. If I still had my own cupcake business, I'd be inclined to ask who their supplier is.
