    Picky eaters, take note: gluten-free cupcakes are always available, and Swirlz will also make low-sugar cupcakes if you call 24 hours ahead and order at least a dozen.

    What makes Swirlz special is the buttercream that they top their cupcakes with. If you're not a frosting fan like me, you'll fall in love with their buttercream!
