Cupcakes

    In the late 2000s Renate Gruber wanted to give her clients something original for Christmas, so she baked cookies and wrapped them up in containers she had designed. These were an instant success and made her seriously consider switching careers – from graphic designer to cake designer. With much support from family and friends, Gruber passed the baker’s certification exam and was on her way to pursuing her vision. In October 2010, the doors opened to what she proudly calls Vienna’s first cupcake bakery, located on Josefstädterstrasse, the 8th district’s main thoroughfare. Here you can choose from about 20 cupcake varieties, which are specially geared toward the Austrian palette and draw on Vienna’s rich baking tradition. This means that Gruber’s cupcakes are not as sweet, soft and buttery as one might be used to, but rather possess the subtle flavors and refinement of crumb that Austrian baked goods are famous for. Feel like trying something new? Cupcakes now sells savory treats with flavors like pea mousse, wasabi or smoked salmon.Show lessRead more
