If you’ve known me for more than oh, a week, you know that I adore cupcakes. I always hunt them down on my travels and I’m always excited to try new flavors. My kid is five years old and he’s never had an actual birthday cake, because I insist on cupcakes. That being said, it’s been a sad and lonely few years in Claremore, with no place to pop in for a cupcake treat. I’ve been begging CIEDA (Claremore Industrial and Economic Development Authority) for a cupcakery for at least two years. And now, my wish is coming true!
The Will Rogers Hotel has been purchased and remodeled, and two new retail spaces have been created. One of those is now home to Frosted Artisan Cake Studio, owned by Beckie Osborn. An award-winning decorator, Beckie has over 30 years of experience in creative cake design with a passion for sugar art and sculpting. Among other accolades, she was the grand prize winner of the Tulsa Cake Boss competition and a Finalist on Cake Wars.

Long story short, Beckie knows what she’s doing. Travis and I popped in yesterday to see how the progress was coming with the shop and to quiz her on the opening date. We were rewarded with two things: a cupcake and information.
First, the cupcake. Maple bacon was the flavor Beckie gave us, and while I’m a chocolate girl through and through, I couldn’t turn down bacon. Or a cupcake. I’ve said it at least twice since eating it, and I’ll say it right now: it’s literally the best cupcake I’ve ever eaten. The flavors were perfect without being overpowering, the cake was soft (and also that other word I hate that starts with M), and the frosting was fantastic.
Second, the intel: Frosted is opening its doors on Saturday, June 10, at 10a. Stop by for a sweet treat (cupcakes, brownies, and Claremore Crunch cookies) and enjoy a cup of coffee or a soda. There are tables inside so you can rest your feet after shopping downtown Claremore. Or before, as nobody ever said you can’t eat a cupcake for breakfast!
A small selection of ready-made cakes will be available to go. Custom cake orders will also be taken; please allow at least a week for your order. Beckie will also be offering cake classes in the future.
