Viva la Cupcake was founded in 2009 on a $1,000 loan and a folding table in an old empty storefront. Since then, Viva has grown up to become Roanoke's premier scratch-made, fresh baked cupcake shop.
In June 2018, Brunella Salazar-Gonti and her husband Levi purchased the business and started on their Viva la Cupcake journey. Brunella brings a flair for design, a passion for unique flavors, and fiery energy to the shop. Our goal is to combine the best of all the places we've been and lived in the world with the hometown feeling of our valley. We believe in our community and we want to bring our own flavor to the area. Viva la Cupcake is the very public side of our passion for quality, for design, and for serving our community with professionalism and honesty.
Our cupcakes and frostings are made from scratch with the freshest and best ingredients we can get our hands on. Since we do it the right way, the sky's the limit on flavors- if you have an idea, let us know what you'd like!
Our 'always' flavors include:
Viva la Chocolate (chocolate cake, white chocolate filling, almond/chocolate buttercream)
Strawberry (strawberry cake, strawberry jam, strawberry buttercream)
The Classic (vanilla cake, vanilla buttercream, sprinkles)
Some of our other recent flavors include (but are definitely not limited to):
Dulce de Leche
Caramel Apple Spice
Chocolate Peanut Butter
Salted Caramel Pecan
Viva la Cupcake provides scratch-made cupcakes, honest service, and a beautiful location for our Roanoke community.
