Awesome variety and constantly changing flavors. A must stop in downtown Cedar Falls! Cupcakes, cupcake shakes, cookies and even dog treats!

I enjoyed the variety of flavors and overall taste of each cupcake. Don't expect to leave with one. One dozen is like 22 bucks so buy 11 cupcakes get 1 free.

A very wonderful cupcakery and GF choices too. The place was nice and clean and bright, Lots of standard cupcakes and treats, and they kept the GF choices separate. Prices were really good.

Enjoying cupcakes as much as I do, I have visited cupcake shops all over the country. Scratch has ruined me for life because they are so tasty! I have yet to find a cupcake I like better. The cupcakes are moist and full of flavor. The frosting is not overly sweet. It is light and fluffy. Family favorites: Dark chocolate... More

I keep trying cupcakes every time I travel, trying to find something that even comes close to Scratch. Epic fail. We have the best right here, and a better price than anywhere. Not only does Scratch have AH-MAZING cupcakes, they really care about the community they serve. Thanks, Scratch, for feeding my cake addiction.

If you can think of a flavor or a combo, they have it. On top of that they are scrumptious!!! If we have out of town guests our go to experience is Cedar Falls uptown with a wonderful fantastic stop at Scratch; the old Ben Franklin when I was growing up.

Scratch cupcakes are absolutely delicious. I'm kind of plain so I usually go for Oh, Happy Day or the Prince and Princess cupcakes, but I have tried others and they are all so good! I definitely recommend visiting here if you are in Cedar Falls.

These cupcakes are rich, from the word "go." They are almost too rich to eat at one setting. Definitely not low cal, low fat.

My family had a get together recently and to celebrate a couple of birthdays we decided to get twelve different cupcakes to please everyone. The plan was successful! The worker at the store was so helpful I asked if he was the owner, to which he responded he wished. Everyone loved the variety of flavor seven cutting them in half... More
