Two months ago I visited Sweet Things Cupcakes in the Proctor District of North Tacoma, WA. A quaint little cupcake and vintage clothing shop nestled in an old Tacoma house. Their cupcakes were delish and the shop was full of fun, cute clothing and gifts. I spoke with the owner Patti and she said they were in the process of rebranding and changing up everything in their shop!
This past weekend, Jubilee Cupcakes & Vintage Candy opened and I paid Patti and her new shop another visit! WOW! I thought the shop was cute before, but it’s 100 times better now! The focus of the shop is definitely on the cupcakes now with some amazing vintage candy too! There is more seating and the shop is less cluttered with non-cupcake stuff. The candy is a perfect addition to the shelves of the store, adding a magical feel to the shop.
Oh… and remember the Ganz Cupcake Measuring Spoons I got a while back? Jubilee sells them!!! They’ve also got a second set of those cupcake measuring spoons in TINY sizes… Dash, Pinch, and Smidgen! Of course, I picked up a set!
Let’s have a little tour of their shop… my camera died before I could take more pictures of the outside and upstairs seating areas… so know, there’s more to the shop than just these pictures!
I can’t have cupcakes anymore… but I let Emme get one. Triple Chocolate with a Hello, Kitty topper! (ps… I had a little taste…. so MOIST and chocolately. Emily wanted seconds! hehe)
Don’t forget all the toppers and goodies to go on your cupcakes!
And now on to the CANDY!!! They had taffy and gum and all kinds of old time candy that you can’t find in the grocery stores!
Party supplies too! (And I also heard that Jubilee is also selling Bella Cupcake Couture!)
Another great addition to Jubilee…. CAKE SPY!!! Yup. Jessie’s got her little Cuppie for-sale at this shop! Emily wanted me to pick her up one of everything! hehe We love Cuppie and Jessie!
So, I’ve gotta say…. this shop is a great addition to the South End. With Indulge in Sumner not re-0pening after their fire and only one other (not-to be named, and not as good!) cupcake shop in Tacoma, Patti has got a great brand on her hands to expand! She told me she plans to expand Jubilee all across the South end of the Sound in the coming years. I am super excited for her and wish her success!
If you’re in Tacoma… make Jubilee a MUST SEE destination!
