I took this class in February and to my surprise I arrived an hour late due to the time that was given to me when I signed up. I knew that I was right because another lady was there with me and she too was late and told the same incorrect information as me. I was really upset and found that I was rushed through the entire process as "catch up". Everything was done for me, the gal that was at my table did all the mixing and pouring. I spent my time watching and then writing do...view morewn the ingredients so that I can try and make them at home. I decorated about 6 cupcakes and the student that worked with me at my table was the one that showed my how to do it. What you have advertised on your website is nothing what the class is about. After a while when your instructors seen how upset and frustarated I was is then when they seem to explain a bit more. Your intructors were too busy running back and forth making, baking, melted and gettng ingridents to spend time and intructing. I could not have cared less of the dozen cupcakes I took home, I wanted the class for a learning expierence which to me a huge disapointment.view less
I've had one bad experience here, and one knock-you-out-of-your-chair good experience here.\r
BAD: I bought a cupcake here that was dry and a little bland. I mean, come on people, the cost of the ingredients for each cupcake is about 47 cents. Every hour, throw the stuff away, and start fresh. We're paying three dollars, so come on. There have to be volumes written about this in food service publications. \r
Also, I find it odd that there are never the same people work...view moreing here. That's just weird. I assume they have turnover issues, which makes for some serious expenditures in training and supervising.\r
GOOD: I had the greatest cupcake of my life here last week. The Frozen Banana Cupcake was a revelation-- A moist vanilla cupcake with banana flavored icing, or vice versa, dipped in a hard shell coating of firm rich fudge-like chocolate and sprinkled with almond bits. Just spectacular. Elegant beyond belief. A triumph.\rview less
I am a cupcake enthusiast. This is definitely one of the best next to Sprinkles. I don't know what everyone has against Sprinkles, but anyway this place is just as good.
I suggest you put the cupcakes in the refrigerator for half an hour, it makes the icing firm, which I think makes it easier to eat and it's delicious!
Oh but everyone is right about the service. Unless you're the ONLY one there, service is soooo slow! It's like they ignore other customers until it's your turn. The...view morey don't consider the line. It's not a big deal unless you're in a hurry.view less
I've never liked Sprinkles in Beverly Hills. Their frosting was always way too heavy and sweet. I have been to Yummy dozens of times now and had most of their flavors. I have never had anything but the perfect cupcake. So delicious! Their ""old school"" is my favorite flavor.
Okay, so overpriced cupcakes have there place and this place makes pretty good ones. However, I've had to walk out of this place twice in the last month because the place was visibly dirty, had a stinky sour smell, and the floor was really sticky and grungy. I'm not sure what happened here but, wow, they need some quality control on the cleanliness.
Nieghbors of ours recently visited the LA area and brought us back a box of Chocolate Truffles from the Yummy shop They were great. Come to find out that my cousins are the owners of the business. Their Dad and myself were long time firends starting in college. The coincidence plus the delicious Truffles was wonderful. Our best wishes to the Yummy crew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!\r
I love cupcakes and had searched for bakeries that specializes in cupcakes after having tried several excellent ones throughout Greater L.A. I came across a listing for Yummy's that touted great cupcakes and tried it over the weekend, but I was highly disappointed by their dryness. I had purchased 5 different types and all had the same dry texture so I won't be going back, especially when each of the cupcakes were about three bucks a piece.
I think they are very good. My friend thinks they are too sweet. I do agree with another poster that they are not sanitary. Last time I was there I saw a server take some extra mint frosting off the side of a displayed cupcake and lick it off her finger. I guess she thought nobody was looking.
Unless you live in or near Burbank, Yummy Cupcakes is a bit of a drive. I'm from the downtown L.A. area and normally stick to the Beverly Hills and West Hollywood areas for food outings. Even though the cupcakes here are good, the icing was very greasy. It may be worth a stop if I'm in the area already, but definitely not a whole trip. Prices are very reasonable though!
