Kara’s Cupcakes Opens In Napa

If you think Napa is all about wine, wine, and more wine, well, it still is. But now, you can get your fix of cupcakes there, too.

Kara’s Cupcakes has opened in the Oxbow Public Market in downtown Napa.

Now, if you need a pick-me-up after wine-tasting, head over to Kara’s for a Fleur de Sel (chocolate cupcake with caramel filling, and ganache frosting sprinkled with sea salt) or Kara’s Karrot (carrot cupcake with tangy, thick cream cheese frosting).

Most of the ingredients that go into the $3.25 cupcakes are sourced locally. They are baked fresh daily. At the end of the day, any unsold cupcakes are donated to charity. Last year, Kara’s provided more than 62,000 cupcakes to the needy, and donated another 10,000 to other causes, including the Make A Wish Foundation.

This is the fifth Kara’s in Northern California. Two others are in San Francisco, another is in San Jose at Santana Row, and another in Palo Alto’s Town & Country Village.
