These cupcakes are about half cake and half frosting. The shop is delightful and the flavors are fun, but you must love icing to appreciate these. The actual cupcake is barely noticeable.

My kids and I are cupcake fanatics and after reading the reviews couldn't wait to try these cupcakes. We had already been to Alexandria Cupcakes and were very impressed. So we finally made it to Lavender Moon. We bought dark chocolate with peanut butter frosting, red velvet, orange dreamsicle (?), chocolate hazelnut, and a vanilla lemon. The place is very... More

My girlfriends and I staying at the Hotel Monaco for our birthday and when we arrived in our rooms we each had two cupcakes from Lavender Moon. I admit thinking this might be just for show and maybe these treats wouldn't be so great. Too much icing was my first reaction. I.Was.So.Wrong. I cannot tell you what flavors I had... More

I had a lemon cupcake with lemon filling, which was delicious. It was so light and rich that it wasn't really a finger food, and I wished I had used a fork! Just mentioning, this isn't really a restaurant. The shop next door will apparently provide coffee if you want to sit and eat your cupcake in the bakery front... More

Good variety of very tasty cupcakes. Can't go wrong stopping at Lavender Moon. All chocoholics need to try the triple chocolate cupcake - a chocolate cupcake topped with chocolate mousse, topped with chocolate ganache.

You know how sometimes cupcakes look good but don't taste good? Not the case here! We got 6 different cupcakes and they were all delicious! Cute little place....

I recently stopped by and tried one of their cupcakes. I was little surprised there were only 6 choices to pick from, however it was very good. I got the chocolate cupcake with milk chocolate icing and a splash of chocolate ganache.

We stopped in to get cupcakes for dessert. The flourless chocolate one with sea salted orange chocolate icing was delicious! My husband got the pumpkin cupcake and said the icing was very creamy.

Lucky day when I walked by Lavender Moon. Had heard about this place so decided to bring home dessert. Blood orange with orange vanilla icing; flourless chocolate with chocolate icing; and sweet potato with chocolate icing. Every cake was moist and flavorful. The icing was creamy, rich, and also full of flavor. Definitely, have to pace ourselves as they could... More

Saw the reviews on this place due to meeting I was having at another location down the street, thought I would give it a try. The interior was painted in a warm yellow with a few tables played out for those who wished to eat in. The cupcake counter had a picture frame around the display cabinet. About 1 dozen... More
