Unique cupcake shop becomes well known in downtown St. Petersburg

Nicole Rogers Longo and Doug Longo, owners of The Cupcake Spot

St. Petersburg, Fla.

After reading this article in the NY Times about The Latest Entrepreneurial Fantasy I was thus inspired to give a review of The Cupcake Spot, a cupcake store near my residence in downtown St. Petersburg. The shop is enticing and sells a lovely homemade variety of all things cupcake.

Located at 405 Central Ave. in downtown St. Petersburg, The Cupcake Spot is nestled in the heart of downtown. The sign is bright pink and hard to miss.

When I entered the store, I was immediately drawn to the gleaming display case of homemade cupcakes, some topped with cream cheese frosting instead of the traditional pasty bettercream. I was there for quite a while to get a good idea of favorites:

Better Than
-Cream cheese frosting. The cake part is really moist, not dry at all like some cupcakes I’ve had.

The Chocolate Elvis.
-Banana cupcake with peanut buttercream and chocolate on top. Holy hell.


-mmmmmm the name says it all.

There is also another Cupcake Spot in Tampa owned by the same people.
