Baker's Dozen: A Batch of Mobile Bakeries and Sweet Food Carts!

Cuppie on Vespa
This week we're going mobile--by pointing out some of the coolest food carts offering sweet stuff across the nation. Some stay put, but some are constantly on the move, traced only by twitter updates. This baker's dozen has captured our attention--catch them if you can (and if you've got a cool one in your town, let us know!):

Cupcake Stop takes the cake in New York City, with mini and regular sized cupcakes. They can be tracked via twitter.

Cupcake Truck in New Haven, CT prides itself on serving cupcakes made from only the finest ingredients; see where they are today on their blog.


Crème Brûlée Cart is cracking down on sweetness in San Francisco! They can be tracked via twitter.

Dessert Truck in NYC serves up fancy desserts (a recent menu includes pavlova and bread pudding!) from their mobile bakery at reasonable prices. 


HeartsChallenger is a mobile ice cream truck that can be hired in LA, Miami and New York, and any ice cream truck that features unicorns and hearts is right up there on the Spy list!

Hey, Cupcake is taking Austin by storm with sweet cupcakes served out of airstream trailers (and one location sans wheels). The locations are fixed, but still have a mobile charm.

Icycle Tricycle in Los Angeles has not only delicious icy treats, but they come at you with a mission.

Parfait Ice Cream will be bringing gourmet ice cream to the masses--on wheels--later this summer in Seattle.


Perfect Cupcakes is making Baltimore (and the world!) a sweeter place with a mobile cupcake delivery unit.

Skillet Street Food in Seattle is a mobile operation which mainly focuses on serving meals, but they also always have a great dessert option or two--a recent menu included lavender shortbread with lemon curd and crème fraiche.  Keep up with their daily goings-on via twitter.

Fresher Than Fresh in Kansas City, MO is serving up some super sweet sno-cones; find where they are now via twitter!


Treats Truck in NYC is a CakeSpy favorite for their creative menu and sweet proprietress (read the CakeSpy interview here!). 

Wafels & Dinges in NYC serves up Belgian waffles with a tantalizing variety of sweet (and savory, if you're into that) toppings; they can be tracked online.


What's your favorite mobile bakery or street cart?

interesting! :)

Great list! This food truck phenomena seems to expand by the day! I jotted a post about it earlier this week and sadly, at this stage, it sounds like a largely American movement so far.


This is such a good list. The website you linked to says that the Sugar Cube in Portland is closed though.

Snooky: Thanks!

Dana: It's a trend I love. I hope it continues to catch on!

Lydia: thanks for noticing. I replaced it with another cool company in Kansas City, MO!

I need to plan another trip to NY so that I can check out all of the dessert trucks. Fabulous! I'm hungry just thinking about them.

What a terrific idea! I had never seen dessert trucks until last week when I visited Austin, TX. Why has it taken so long to catch on?!

I just had a plush food cart at the Maker Faire this weekend, if you want to see pix they're at octopiary.blogspot.com. :D Felt for dessert!
