One of the first cupcake-centric spots in St. Louis, Jilly’s Cupcake Bar has gained national attention thanks to its victory on the popular Food Network show Cupcake Wars. The cupcakes here aren’t decorated so much as crafted, a cityscape of spangled buttercream towers like something out of a child’s storybook. Whether you try one of the regular favorites (the “Chocolate Thunder,” anyone?) or a seasonal cupcake, you’re sure to fall in love. RFT photo.
