FAQ – Our Bakeries

Where are you located?

We have 2 locations:

  • Cathedral Square: 825 N Jefferson St, Milwaukee, WI 53202, which is downtown across from Cathedral Square Park on the west side of the street, between Elsa’s and Louise’s restaurants.
  • Brookfield Square: 95 N Moorland Rd, Suite FC4, Brookfield, WI 53005, which is in the food court in the southwest side of Brookfield Square Mall.

Are both bakery locations the same?

Yes! Both our Cathedral Square and Brookfield Square bakeries have their own kitchens and bake from scratch fresh on site every day in small batches, using the same recipes. All of our bakers are trained by our head baker to use the same tried and true methods. Both bakeries can make anything on our website by special order. There are some slight differences in daily offerings between locations based on the tastes of the local communities, but both bakeries offer the same core menu.

Can I just walk in and buy cupcakes, or do I have to place an order?

You can do either! We always have 25+ flavors in stock, including cake cupcakes and jumbo filled cupcakes. There are 9 flavors we make every day at both locations: Carrot Cake, Confetti, Cookies & Cream, Ghirardelli Chocolate, Lemon, Peanut Butter Delight, Red Velvet, Vanilla, and Vanilla Salted Caramel. Other in stock flavors depend on the season, ingredients we have in stock, and what other customers special order. We often have other fun treats in stock such as cheesecake cupcakes, Ghirardelli milk chocolate chip cookies, cupcake truffles, cupcake mousse parfaits, and cupcake push pops. Selection varies, available while supplies last.

Can I walk in and buy a cake, or do I have to place an order?

All cakes are custom baked and decorated from scratch to order, and we don’t keep any cakes for sale in our case. We prefer at least 2-3 business days notice for cake orders, but if you need your cake sooner, feel free to call one of our bakery locations and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Is this a chain?

Nope! Classy Girl Cupcakes is privately owned by Erica Elia and is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Read more about Erica’s story.

Were you on Cupcake Wars?

We got several calls from casting and had a professional audition video produced, and then the show stopped filming. Most people don’t realize the show ended in 2013, and they are watching reruns. We wish we could have made it in time!
