There wasn't a dedicated bakery in Mt. Airy until fairly recently (although High Point Cafe might have something to say about that).
This week's winner—and future winners—will be determined by a relatively new set of rules. We've implemented a point system in which the actual votes here will now account for 50 percent of the decision. How highly each business or location is rated on its Patch Place listing will account for the other half.
So vote for the best cupcakes, but don't forget to click on the links above and rate each business. You can also leave a review. If there is a tie, we will help break it by counting the positive comments written below about the tied businesses, so let us know why you think your choice is best.
If we missed one you think warrants mention, let us know in the comments section below.
