Welcome to Happy Bakeshop!

Denver’s original gourmet cupcake bakery. And with more than cupcakes, we’ll make you REALLY happy. Come visit and try our French macarons, cookies, bars, cakes, pies, and more. Decadence from scratch, and so many to choose from! Using the finest, freshest ingredients, we craft each treat from scratch, by hand into a scrumptious delicacy with whimsical elegance. It’s old fashioned TLC, and it’s so worth it. Perfect for all occasions, all ages. Weddings. Birthdays. Charity Events. Business Gifts. Book Club. Just give us a call … because everyone deserves a little sugar.

We are pleased to offer super delicious gluten-free and vegan dining options, but if you have a serious allergy please know that our small kitchen is not-gluten free or peanut free. Check out our menu to see the days that each specialty will be offered on the cupcake menu. We do usually have something to satisfy either need everyday. Call to check! AND we also offer an “allergen-free” – no gluten, no eggs, no dairy – cupcake available by special order. We can bake it up in chocolate, vanilla, carrot, pumpkin or banana flavors!


Don’t forget you can get your sweet fix as you take off on a fun adventure or your next business trip. Because everyone deserves a little sugar…even at the airport! Find the Happy Cakes Cafe in Concourse C in the new Southwest Airlines expansion.

Hello, happy friends!
Thank you, Longmont, for more than three wonderful years as your local scratch Bakeshop! We have loved feeding your sweet tooth, but have decided to get back to our roots at our original shop in Highlands Square in Denver. As of April 1, our Longmont store is closed. But fear not! You can still satisfy your sweet tooth with our treats at Whole Foods in Longmont and Boulder.

Thanks again for welcoming us into your lives, and for your support over the past few years. Come see us down in the Highlands!

And in case you hadn’t heard… You’ve probably started seeing Happy Cakes looking just a little different these days. We are HAPPY BAKESHOP! For years now we’ve been baking up all kinds of goodies that are not simply cake, in addition to our decadent cakes and cupcakes. And so we want that to be reflected in our name. All the things you love about us…our scratch baked goodness – cupcakes to cookies to French macarons, our friendly service, our general happiness…it all stays deliciously the same. Our logo has been given a fresh facelift with the new name, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Have you heard…?

It was a sweet surprise to us, and we couldn’t be more proud! READ ALL ABOUT IT!


Thank you all for your love and support over the years. It’s super sweet!
