There's a new place in town! A new cupcake shop that is! For Goodness Cakes opened up in Huntington Beach this week.

If you have been reading this blog for any length of time you know I'm a BIG cupcake lover and I love finding new shops to try out.

Being a baker myself, I'm pretty picky about my cupcakes. I've found more places that sell cupcakes that I don't like then I have found that I do like. Only a hand full of places that I would go back to again.

For Goodness Cakes falls in the last category. I will be going back here again... and again!

For Goodness Cakes is owned by three young men. All very nice!

The whole staff is great! Very welcoming and friendly.

I really like the lay out of For Goodness Cakes. The colors are red and a creamy gold color with touches of dark brown.

The feel of the place is homey and warm. A place you wouldn't mind hanging out at. The decor also isn't overly girly, so your guy won't mind being there either.

They have several different flavors of cupcakes. They have a Reese's Peanut Butter cupcake, Red Velvet, coconut, chocolate with both chocolate and white icing, white with both white and chocolate icing and a fun celebration cupcake that is a white cupcake with colored sprinkles and white icing with sprinkles. I'm sure the celebration is a BIG hit with the kids.

There is a counter area you can sit out to enjoy your cupcakes and coffee or soft drinks.

In case you wonder what time it is while you are For Goodness Cakes, just look at the wall with all the clocks and you will find It's Cupcake Time.

I think my favorite is the Red Velvet cupcake with Cream cheese icing and a cute red heart.

It's hard to pick which one you want. They all look good.

Not only do they look good, they taste GREAT!

I was thrilled to find a cupcake shop that is near to me with great cupcakes.

So, grab your cupcake and pull up a seat at the darling cupcake tables.

Or, you could sit back in these comfy chairs and relax while you enjoy every bite of your favorite cupcake.

No matter where you eat it, you will surely love it!

Another great thing about For Goodness Cakes is, it's right by Bella Terra Theatre. The Theatre is known for not letting you bring in outside food. However, For Goodness Cakes has reached an agreement with them to allow their cupcakes to be brought in.

Now doesn't that sound wonderful! A cupcake while you enjoy a great movie. Sounds like heaven to me!

So yes! I will be back to For Goodness Cakes for sure!

Hi Joanne!! What a cool place! The one thing I love about cupcakes is the portion control... it may not be low in calories but it's a portion. That's what it's all about to me. I LOVE red velvet too!!

How have you been sweetie??

Hugs, Sherry

This little shop is the very reason that I miss California. There are so many unique shops there that you just won't find in many other places. I can't imagine finding a cup cake shop in New Orleans or Chicago, etc.

Those cup cake tables are so sweet!

I have never bought cupcakes! I just can't justify the cost.
I love the table, so cute!
