If you're trying to impress, you can't do much better than a box of cupcakes. They're tasty, they're great for sharing, and, let's face it, they're kind of adorable. You've got loads of options when it comes to buying cupcakes, with cupcake shops popping up all over the UK in recent years. However, if you're going to one of these independent places then you'll probably notice that the prices can be pretty steep.
Sainsbury's Red Velvet Cupcakes
Sainsbury's are known for having an excellent bakery section in almost every store (even the smaller 'Local' branches), and they're also known for their great range of cakes - including cupcakes. Their Red Velvet Cupcakes are probably our favourite from their entire range.
Tesco Wicked Kitchen Lemon cupcakes
The Tesco 'Wicked' range of vegan products has been a bit of a surprise hit, with many consumers who aren't even vegan enjoying the products. Of all the products in the Wicked range, the Lemon cupcakes seem to have really struck a chord with Tesco customers. Despite being dairy free, they're totally delicious and the lemon flavour is excellent.
Morrisons caterpillar cupcakes
As far as cupcakes for kids go, we think Morrisons come out on top as the best supermarket option. These caterpillar cupcakes from Morrisons are adorably decorated (looking vaguely like another well-known supermarket caterpillar), and they've got a gooey chocolate centre. They're also free from artificial flavours and colours so not filled with rubbish. At £2.35 per pack, they're also very well priced and you can order them on Amazon with next day delivery - amazon.co.uk
Sainsbury's mini chocolate cupcakes
We've already included Sainsbury's in this list, but we did mention that they've got a particularly good range of cakes so they're definitely worthy of a second spot. Their mini chocolate cupcakes are a great option if you're looking for a variety of flavours (5 milk chocolate and 4 white chocolate) and they do taste very good.
M&S Percy Pig party cupcakes
Here in the UK, we're lucky to have an excellent choice of supermarket cupcakes to choose from, and we've highlighted some of our favourites in this guide. Let us know your favourites in the comments below.
