Not that there's anything wrong with the choice for "highest rated" it just surprised us.

When you're thinking about celebrating National Cupcake Day, which is today, by the way, you can celebrate in style in Rockford.

That's because we have some of the best cupcake shops in the state, but only one could be recognized as the "highest rated" on Yelp!

That distinction goes to Banana Cherry Bakery at 1310 South Alpine Road.

The reviews on Yelp! for this place are off the charts referring to Banana Cherry Bakery as "a hidden gem in Rockford" with "baked goods as good as you'll find in Paris, New York, etc.!"

What Rockford area bakery makes the best cupcakes? Let us know!
