For the third straight year, The Cup is rolling out a limited edition April Fool’s Day cupcake that’s sure to delight sweets lovers and pranksters alike!

The Root Beer Float features a light and fluffy root beer cupcake submerged in root beer buttercream and topped with a heaping scoop of vanilla buttercream, a drizzle of root beer sauce and a white chocolate straw.

Previously The Cup has created cupcakes mimicking mashed potatoes and gravy (2015) and a mini taco salad (2016).

“This has become such a wonderful tradition for our team,” The Cup owner Ericka Frank says. “We always have fun in our kitchen, but this is a great way for us to get thinking outside the box and inspires us creatively all year long!”

About The Cup
When The Cup opened as St. Louis’ first gourmet cupcake bakery in July 2007, St. Louisans let out a collective sugary squeal of delight. Since then, owner Ericka Frank has expanded to include three locations, in St. Louis’ Central West End and Edwardsville, Illinois. The Cup serves a rotating menu featuring more than 50 different flavors, each as delicious as the last. Since 2015, The Cup has been the favorite cupcake of both Cardinals Care and the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cup is committed to supporting the local community through the sale of its award-winning cupcake flavor combinations and famous made-from-scratch buttercream.
