Review of Gigi's Cupcakes in Greensboro, NC

A bakery that specializes in selling cupcakes? A well loved cupcake shop? Gigi’s Cupcakes is a cupcake bakery that is located in an often busy and high-traffic section of Westover Terrace in Greensboro, North Carolina. This article will contain a brief review of the Gigi's Cupcakes bakery that specializes in offering lovely cupcakes.

Gigi's Cupcakes is a franchise and has many other cupcake bakery locations in other states, as well. In Greensboro, the Gigi's Cupcakes shop is conveniently located immediately next door to Pot Belly’s sandwich shop, which I also love.

I could easily stop by both Gigi's Cupcakes shop and Pot Belly's sandwich shop in one trip!

During my first visit to Gigi's Cupcakes bakery, I spontaneously decided to walk in to the bakery with my son to see what the bakery had to offer. I was pleasantly surprised by how quaint and cute the cupcake shop was. There was fine attention to detail in the beautiful cupcake decorations displayed in glass cases, and there were complementary colors on everything from the cupcake shop décor to the cardboard boxes used to package the cupcakes and other goods.

  • Gigi's Cupcakes is a cupcake shop that really appears to care about its branding.
  • Using eye-catching pale green and pink cardboard boxes with a hint of brown is a lovely way to package the scrumptious baked goods such as the cupcakes.
  • Consistent throughout, the Gigi's Cupcakes shop uses these pale green and pink colors on its website, as well.

Cupcakes at Gigi's Cupcakes are generous in size

Cupcakes at Gigi’s Cupcakes are very large and can easily be cut to share between two people. The cupcakes cost around $3 each. A box of four cupcakes costs around $12.

A box of four cupcakes is very neatly divided and can be transported to another location without getting the cupcakes messed up. The packaging of the cupcakes is very good for preventing the cupcakes from getting squashed or crumbled, and it prevents the frosting on the cupcakes from getting messed up as well.

The cupcakes at this bakery are elaborately decorated with lots of frosting. When it comes to choosing what cupcakes you will buy, you will be thinking, “Decisions, decisions!” as there are a wealth of options to choose from. My son wanted the birthday cake option, which comes with pink frosting and confetti-style sprinkles. I was enthusiastic about ordering wedding cake cupcakes and cheesecake cupcakes for us and the rest of the family to share. We did indeed decide to cut our cupcakes so we could each try some, and every variety of cupcake that we purchased was delicious. The cheesecake cupcake was very creamy and good, and had frosting and fruit topping, while the wedding cake cupcake was especially soft, moist, and flavorful. The cupcakes from Gigi's Cupcakes did not disappoint!

Great customer service

The people who work at Gigi’s cupcake shop in Greensboro, North Carolina are very pleasant in their customer service delivery and will readily answer any questions you might have about the establishment or the product offerings. Visiting the cupcake shop is a memorable experience which might prompt you to want to learn more about the business as their website, gigiscupcakesusa.com. This website is very informative as well. The background of the business and the menu options are discussed on the website.

On our next visit to this shop, we might try other cupcake varieties such as the red velvet or some of the various types of chocolate cupcakes.

Update: This particular Gigi's Cupcakes shop location has closed down.:(

Recently, I've learned that the Greensboro location has unfortunately closed down. Now, it seems that closest Gigi's Cupcakes to the Greensboro area is in Winston Salem, North Carolina. So, at least the experience of visiting this shop can still be found elsewhere. It is worth a visit, if it is convenient for you.

Hi Nancy,

I hope that you have been doing well. I have started writing some more on HubPages again after not having written anything new on HubPages for a while. I so appreciate you posting your nice comment to this hub about Gigi's Cupcakes. Thanks.

Good review, thanks, and the cupcakes look great, but I 'm alwayss leary about buying them from a bakery; they tend to be a little dry. I really prefer to make mine at home.
