Cupcakes on Kavanaugh
Chris and Christy Milligan had a dream. It was a very sweet dream and it came to fruition in April of 2008 in Little Rock at Cupcakes on Kavanaugh. Christy comes from a long line of great bakers and the talent has obviously been passed down through the four generations. The pair moved back to Christy’s home state with their baby boy and big dreams. Their first cupcake bakery was born on Kavanaugh Boulevard in the Heights District. Today if you stop by the bakery, you will find Christy trying out new recipes for delicious flavors and Chris running the business part and taste testing Christy’s delicious creations.
The finest products are used to create these cups cakes including Madagascar vanilla and organic milk. On any day the bakery is open you will find four classic flavor cupcakes and four or five gourmet options. If you have favorites, call ahead to see if they are on the menu for that day.
