Creative cupcakes

My only gripe? I wish the cupcakes were bigger. But for $3 they're a perfect-sized snack. The gluten-free option doesn't taste gluten free. Awesome.

Love their cupcakes! Delicious, fresh, beautiful, and a cute place! (but could use more seating) Service is prompt and courteous, and who doesn't love a cupcake as a mid-afternoon snack?!

The cupcakes here are phenomenal. They include creative flavor combinations, and are made with top-quality ingredients. They're fairly expensive, but they are large and delicious, so well worth a splurge. Service has always been excellent.

The cupcakes here are amazing. My favorite cupcake is the S'mores cupcake and the Triple Belgian Chocolate cupcake. The cupcakes are well made and unique. Out of all the cupcakes I have eaten, the Lavender Moon cupcakes are #1!

Slightly off the King Street stretch in Olde Town Alexandria, but well worth the extra block walk. Against Alexandria Cupcake, these win- hands down. Our go to place for special occasion dessert. The are baked fresh and don't keep well, but in my house they do not last more than a day, so it is rarely a problem.

On my visit visit I had the peach/blueberry. It was light and airy and the buttercream frosting was to die for. So good I went back the next day and had the lemon/blackberry - just as good loved the lemon flavor. Don't pass this little gem up !!!!

We tried several cupcake shops and preferred this one hands down! Moist cake with creamy frosting... The lemon blackberry was yummy!

Love these cupcakes. Better than the other gourmet cupcakes in the area. These are adult cupcakes with a sophisticated flavor. They are too expensive to give to kids to gulp down and not enjoy the refined flavor.

Many varieties of cupcakes are available. All are wonderful, but nothing can top their lemon curd cupcake.
