Sweet Tooth Fairy has seven Utah locations, with two more coming soon. Their "cakebites" have been featured on Rachel Ray's TV show, and billionaire CBS owner Sumner Redstone is a fan of the company's products and came into town for the opening of the Salt Lake store. Sweet Tooth Fairy sells mostly cupcakes, cookies, brownies, bars and cakebites at its retail stores. They also make special order full-size cakes.
In general, I prefer a slice of regular cake to a cupcake, because cupcakes are usually drier. Cupcakes have their advantages, however, including cuteness, small serving size, and the ability to support huge piles of yummy icing. Sweet Tooth Fairy's cupcakes are just what a cupcake should be - adorable, individual and indulgent - a sweet throwback to childhood perfect for parties, gift giving, dessert or afternoon snacking.
Sweet Tooth Fairy's everyday cupcake flavors include red velvet, double fudge, toasted coconut, strawberry shortcake, and VaNIElla Squared, a vanilla cupcake with a blend of extracts and a maraschino cherry on top. There's also a selection of seasonal cupcakes that change every month, including flavors like raspberry lemonade for summer, pumpkin chocolate for fall and egg nog for winter.
I was intrigued with the cakebites, bite-sized pieces of dense cake enrobed in chocolate, and I tried the double fudge and chocolate peanut butter varieties. These were good, but I didn't like them as much as I thought I would. The cake part of cakebites resembles regular cake, but about twice as dense.
