Gigi’s Cupcakes of Knoxville

11665 Parkside Drive
Turkey Creek, 37934
Driving down Parkside I noticed Gigi's and we had to stop and try their cupcakes. I love cupcakes and enjoy trying out new and different flavors. The four we took home were Cherry Limeade, Scarlett's Red Velvet, Lemon Icebox, and White Midnight Magic. Pros -many different flavors and varieties -they change and rotate daily -the cherry cake and lemon cake were very subtle in flavor -VERY pretty cupcakes Cons -when you walk in and look at the cupcakes the first thought that popped in my head were "how long have those been sitting out?" because the icing looked a little dry and had a crackle-y appearance -WAY TOO MUCH frosting. Yuck. -the cakes were a little dry and dense (we like them to be light and fluffy) I've tried much better cupcakeries than Gigi's and would rather go to those instead of coming back.
Putting 3 stars for now to balance between both my visits to Gigi's. The first visit was a 1 or 2 star. Stale cupcakes, way too much frosting and just "meh" flavors. Second visit, probably still a bit too much frosting but the cakes were moist and delicious. I tried the chocolate chip cookie dough and peanut butter cupcakes on the second visit. Both were very good! We will revisit in the future :)
I love Gigi's. There is a lot of frosting and I'm not a frosting person - but I love theirs. Gigi's is a special treat for me whenever I'm in town.
