Of course it is always about the cupcakes – and you have to taste them to believe them. But Jilly’s didn’t stop there. We decided to start making four delicious flavors of Jilly’s Ice Cream. What started out as an idea to bring the freshest and best ingredients together with incredible bakers and pastry chefs, has grown into so much more. Add in a fun atmosphere and you’ve got Jilly’s Cupcakes Bar & Ice Cream Bar!!


We have also built partnerships with local grocery stores like Schnucks and Dierbergs to distribute Jilly’s Ice Cream to a wider audience.   Dierbergs also carries our cupcakes.


We have come a long way and we thank our customers for our success!

FAQs – You got Questions? We got answers!


How big are your cupcakes?

At Jilly’s our everyday cupcakes are gourmet size (jumbo). Once they are stuffed and decorated they weigh about a half pound each. Big enough to satisfy your sweetest desires, or enough to share, if you desire.


Are these your only size cupcakes?

Nope! Here at Jilly’s we also offer customers mini cupcake 12-packs. Minis are about a bite and a half and look exactly like their jumbo partners. Please contact us to make these cupcakes for large special orders, don’t forget to leave your phone number so we can get back to you.


Finally we have our standard stuffed cupcakes.  These are smaller than our gourmet sized cupcakes.


Should I put my cupcakes in the refrigerator?

Jilly’s cupcakes do not like to be refrigerated. They are best in a cool, room-temperature environment. We suggest you eat your cupcakes the day you purchase them.   And then come back for more!


If I call ahead am I able to pick my favorite flavor?

At Jilly’s we have both everyday favorites and a monthly rotation. Although our cupcakes change regularly, please give us a call to see if we can accommodate your flavor selection.


I have a nut allergy. Can I eat your cupcakes?

Although some of our cupcakes do not have nuts on top of them, all of Jilly’s cupcakes are made in a bakery where nuts and peanut dust are present.


Are any of your cupcakes gluten free/sugar-free/vegan?

At this time we are sorry to say that all of our cupcakes contain gluten and are not vegan or sugar-free. We do offer a Cheesecake that has a nut/honey/toffee crust which is gluten free.


What should I do if I’m interested in working at Jilly’s?

Please stop in and fill out an application during the week from 2-4. We will contact you if we are interested.


Does Jilly’s accept Bear Bucks?

Yes! Whether you’re coming in for cupcakes or a special order, Jilly’s is now an approved vendor. Bear Bucks and Jilly’s new event space are a great way to commemorate the school year, send graduates off in style or just celebrate with friends and family. Bear Bucks cards must be swiped at the time of purchase.


Do you ship your products?

Because Jilly’s cupcakes are best enjoyed fresh and the icing is so delicate, we do not ship at this time. We will let you know if that changes in the future.


Do you do catering and special cupcakes?

Yes we do that and so much more. Check out the Catering and Custom Cupcake sections. We can fit every need available specifically for your event.

ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) A cupcake is a cupcake is a cupcake…or so they say. But is it? After taking a look at some of the highest rated by Trip Advisor, and listening to several different friends opinions, I looked a little closer to see how each one differed from the rest. And cupcakes are definitely one of my favorite topics, so I decided to write about my five favorite St. Louis Cupcakes!
