We placed an order for 2 small boxes and 1 medium box of cookies to send out to some very special clients... actually 3 special clients. You simply cannot imagine our surprise when we were told that we could not custom order what cookies we wanted in the box. Apparently shortbread is popular at this time of year and they... More

Great cupcakes! My friends buy these for my birthday every year and it is the only time I get them. They are very expensive but oh so yummy! Red velvet is my favorite!

It doesn't get any better. Large and moist - totally melt in your mouth. The red velvet is unforgettable.

I am not an expert on cupcakes, but really for the price I did not see any extra value! The icing was even a bit to much for me...just my opinion !

Alright, it seems as if we're spoiled here in Calgary. I've done tons of travelling and everywhere I go (New York, Las Vegas, Paris, Rome) there seems to be a cupcake shop. I've tried them all and they're never as good as Crave. They set the standard for an amazing cupcake!

...I could get a cupcake as good as this here in the UK. Sadly, it would seem that British bakeries have no real idea what constitutes a great cupcake. Crave would put every other cupcake business here out of business!

I dream about these cupcakes since moving away from Calgary. Yet to find an equivalent anywhere in the world and believe me I've tried!! We get a dozen minis every time we come back to visit - which must include at least 4 red velvet :). Order ahead on Saturdays (or any day)

They have cupcakes and charge a lot for them. There is nothing special about their super sweet cakes. Tasting anything other than sugar requires supper taste buds!
