Have a sweet tooth? Head over to the Cupcakerie, the first and only cupcake bakery in Morgantown. Located on Willey St. it opened in 2011. Two friends, Anna McCarty Carrier and Janet Nelson Williams, met back at 2007 when they worked at a local law office together. They both grew up in Morgantown and graduated from WVU.
The ladies shared a passion for being creative, cooking and baking. When Anna decided she wanted to open up her own business, she opted for a cupcake shop.
Cupcake shops are quite trendy nowadays through the country. But back then there was no such place in Morgantown. Still to this day The Cupcakerie remains the only cupcake bakery in town. They have won the Best Sweet Indulgence in Morgantown award from Morgantown Magazine for the past five years.
What makes this business unique is that the cupcakes are made every single day from scratch. Anna and Janet strive to provide the best product with the finest ingredients. They also offer gluten free, sugar free and vegan options. They are also passionate about creating originally designed cupcakes for special days and occasions.
“We would love to add a personal touch to your event, whether it is your wedding, shower, birthday, retirement party, graduation, Christmas party, office party, tailgate… or anything else you may dream of! We believe cupcakes are perfect for every occasion!!!”
The Cupcakerie offers nine signature collections, one of which is The Mountaineer Collection. The names of cupcakes include ‘Take Me Home Rocky Roads’, ‘Gold & Blue-berry’, ‘Mountain Mama’ and ‘Almost Heaven Apple Pie’. As you can see the names are inspired by local traditions that are unique only to West Virginia.
