Scratch Cupcakes is my favorite place for a sweet treat in my hometown area. They have shops in Lititz and Ephrata (Lancaster County, PA) and as much as I am in love with them, I thank my lucky stars that both of these shops are about 20 minutes away or else I’d be there even more often. Like, daily. Because they’re just that good.
Laura is the owner of Scratch and she’s got a heart of gold. Just love this girl…nearly as much as her cupcakes! I teamed up with her this fall to introduce you to Scratch and you really need to check out that post to see some up close and personal pictures of the cupcakes we loved best. It’s a tough job, this cupcake reviewing, but my team of experts (that includes two kids with highly trained sweet teeth and my and my husband) are always up to the challenge.
Just in time for the holidays Scratch has introduced their Holiday Boxes, really adorably decorated boxes of cupcakes. These are their same fabulous cupcakes with some cute seasonal decorations added for no extra charge. Perfect for any kind of holiday party you’ve got planned at work or for the kids. It was snowing when I picked up this box of heaven today. Talk about a perfect winter storm: beautiful snow and Christmasy cupcakes. Yes, please! I might have slip slid into the house a bit and bumped these around but I think you get the idea…the delicious idea!
Holiday Boxes are available through December 24 at both Scratch locations. You can call either store ahead of time to place your order and have your box ready and waiting for pick up. They’re also going to be fully stocked for walk-ins on Christmas Eve. We’re having some company over so I think we’re going to need to grab a box, too!
Christmas Eve Hours:
- Ephrata: (717) 466-6464 10am-6pm
- Brickerville: (717) 568-8500 10am-5pm
If you’re local to the Lancaster area or within driving distance, you definitely have to make a Scratch stop this holiday season. Be sure to check their hours on their website and I like to stay up to speed with all the most current news on their Facebook page. Follow along on Twitter, too!
And now for the really *sweet* part! Scratch is generously offering one of my readers their very own Holiday Box of cupcakes! Yes, that’s one dozen cupcakes all jazzed up for the holidays. We’re going to end this giveaway on Saturday December 21 at 12pm ET so our winner will have the chance to pick up their cupcakes either that afternoon or on Tuesday, Christmas Eve! (Scratch is closed on Sunday and Monday, 12/22 and 12/23). In the event that the winner can’t get to the shop before Christmas, no worries. Holiday Boxes will be gone but the dozen delicious cupcakes are still part of the prize. Yum! Please, before you enter be sure that you live within driving distance of Scratch in Lancaster County, PA. Cupcakes are not shipped, only available in their bakeries.
Good luck, local readers! Happy Holidays!
