Fluellen Cupcakes is open in downtown Dallas
This hip shop will also have a coffee bar.
DOWNTOWN DALLAS If you’re like me, you appreciate gourmet delights of all kinds, especially those of a sweet persuasion. I’m sure you’ve heard of the Sprinkles 24-hour Cupcake ATM in Preston Center (CRAZY idea – huh)? Well, this is kinda like that, only minus the 24-hour part. You see, there’s a new gourmet cupcake baker in town, and they have high aspirations of world domination or “The Best Cupcake on the Planet,” although they’re quick to point out there isn’t documentation to support this claim.
Fluellen Cupcakes (the owners of Dimples Cupcakes in Frisco) announced the soft-opening of their new Downtown Dallas digs at the corner of Akard & Elm. You may wonder about the name, Fluellen “flew-el-en” which is the owner, Keith Fluellen’s, last name.
This hip confectioner offers a warm and inviting neighborhood cafe that will feature a coffee bar (coming soon) with coffee, espresso, lattes, tea, hot chocolate, frappuccino, smoothies, and other cold beverages in addition to its sweet treats. Fluellen offers an array of options from large cupcakes ($4/ea; $24/6; $48/dozen), mini-cupcakes (2 dozen, $48), cake pops ($2/ea), 10″ & 12″ cakes, bridal cakes (call for quotes on cakes), and corporate deliveries.
Best selling flavors are Wedding Cake, Red Velvet, Banana Pudding, Strawberry, Lemon Delight, and Cookies ‘N’ Cream. You’ll want to check their website for the cupcake flavor schedule so you won’t miss your favorites. I’ve tried several, and so far, my favorites have been Banana Pudding and Snickerdoodle.
