If you have never been to Oh My Cupcakes!...oh my goodness your sweet tooth is missing out!

The local cupcake establishment has not one, but two locations in the Sioux Empire. You can find Oh My Cupcakes! on 57th and Western and on East 10th Street.

Since 2009, the cupcake hotspot has been providing a hometown taste for Sioux Falls.  Owner Melissa Johnson "was fueled with a beautiful, grand vision, but backed by a pitifully small bank account. And, 2009 was an era marked with fear, as our national economy was in a steady decline."

The cupcake eatery started off in a small, commercial kitchen.  Then Melissa and her "Cupcake Ninjas" opened her first storefront in Downtown Sioux Falls in 2010. Fast forward to August 2013 when Oh My Cupcakes!  moved to The Bridges at 57th and Western. The cupcake empire has been thriving ever since!

Melissa is truly a cupcake and overall dessert master in the Sioux Falls area. There are so many creative cupcake flavors to try at Oh My Cupcakes!.

Melissa even gave me ten sinfully yummy cupcakes to try for the week. Check out these irresistible cupcakes: Which one satisfies your sugary appetite?
