There's simply no sweeter treat than the cupcake. Since the pint-sized-dessert trend swept Chicagoland, shops peddling these personal pastries have popped out of the oven by the baker's dozen. Sample your way through the best frostings and flavors in the city on this guided tour.

Meander down historic State Street to West Town Bakery, in the trendy Acme hotel. An upbeat spot specializing in organic baked goods, this award-winning confection king was named “Best Cupcake in Chicago” and got first place at Donut Fest, 2 years in a row.

Continue past the elegant shops and boutiques of the Magnificent Mile to visit Sacred Grounds Bakery—a hidden gem only few know about—who are known for their enormous creations piled high with delicious frosting.

Stop off at the John Hancock building to enjoy gelato at L’appetito—Chicago’s oldest Italian deli—and peruse their selection of delicate pastries, hearty sandwiches, and imported fare. From there it's on to the world-famous Sprinkles Cupcakes and the cupcake ATM, a large pink machine that dispenses cupcakes 24 hours a day!

Wrap up your tour with a bit of history and a visit to More Cupcakes, Chicago’s first and oldest gourmet cupcake shop, featured in Time, Newsweek and on Oprah’s “Favorite Things”. Be sure to save room to sample their sweet salted caramel cupcake and the savory BLT cupcake, an enthusiast favorite not to be missed.
