Nashville’s Best Kept Secret – The Cupcake Collection

Sharing is caring!

Nashville may be known for Princess hot chicken,  Loveless Cafe biscuits, and Belle Meade Bourbon but there is a new Queen in town.  In honor of National Cupcake Day, I am naming The Cupcake Collection as not only the Best Bakery in Nashville but I declare they have the Best Cupcakes in Nashville.  

They have been serving up cupcakes for the last ten years and The Cup Cake Collection is now a staple in Music City.

Before you know it this unconsuming house on 6th Street will be your own little sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

What Makes Them The Best Cupcakes In Nashville?

It takes just the right amount of love, tenderness, and understanding to get the perfect cupcake. The cake needs to be fluffy and so moist it just melts in your mouth, the frosting needs to be sweet but not too sweet and stacked high, but not so high that you’ll go into a diabetic coma after indulging in one cupcake.

The Flavors

The “Classic” flavors are available every day but their “Special” flavors change daily and don’t forget about the holiday flavors as well.CupCake Collection

The Cupcake Collection is a hidden gem well worth searching for located in downtown Nashville on 6th Avenue convenient to the Farmers Market off Rosa Parks.

The bakery is located in a house so you have to look for it otherwise you will ride right past it.

Park on the street and hurry in to get all of the deliciousness and while the house itself is small you are more than welcome to sit on the patio and savor the flavor of your cupcake along with a cup of coffee.

There is also the option of sitting in your car and eating them all right outside of the bakery.

The Cupcake Collection is closed on Saturdays so they are inviting their customers to #FollowtheJoy to the bakery on Sunday, December 16th!
