Did you know cupcakes were originally called 1234 cakes? That’s because it was a simple way to remember the ingredient proportions.

If you would like to enjoy a cupcake, head to one of these bakeries near our apartments in Baltimore. You’ll find everything from classic favorites to out-of-the-box creations.

Woodlea Bakery: 14-minute drive

A local favorite since 1943, Woodlea offers old-fashioned service and hundreds of freshly baked treats. It’s run by the Hergenroeder family’s fourth generation and stays true to the bakeries of yesteryear. The bakers never use mixes or pre-made toppings, and they start their day early to make everything from scratch. Cupcakes include German chocolate, carrot cake, and red velvet.

Fenwick Bakery: 22-minute drive

After immigrating from Switzerland to Baltimore, Ernest Uebersax found a job at a small bakery. He fell in love with the baker’s sister-in-law, and eight years later, Ernest and his new wife opened a bakery of their own. Over a century later, Fenwick is still known for the freshest baked goods in town. Everything is made on-site, including the delectable vanilla cupcakes with chocolate icing. 

Enchanted Cakes & Treats: 26-minute drive

When Carrie was four years old, she stood on a stool in her grandmother’s kitchen to bake cakes. Today, she owns Enchanted Cakes & Treats and is proud to grow the business from a home bakery to a storefront. Carrie gained recognition on the Cooking Channel and enjoys watching customers’ expressions as they bite into their delicious treats. She offers specialty cupcake flavors daily with choices including banana pudding, cookie dough, and salted caramel. 

In addition to these bakeries, our Fells Points apartments are also near premier shopping destinations and world-renowned attractions. If you’re searching for a place to call home, please contact us. We’d love to show you firsthand all we have to offer.
