I enjoyed my cupcake. I ordered the triple chocolate. The cake itself was very moist. The frosting is a little too sweet at times. It is a nice little snack. You can have them hold your favorite flavor so your guaranteed to get you one. I haven't done this because I just try another flavor... read more

The cupcakes at this place are most certainly delicious! They change their menu options quite often so that you almost always have a different selection to choose from. The best word to describe their cupcakes are scrumptious, as they are made from scratch and have a homemade frosting. The only critique I had is that I do not always care... More

Visited twice while we were there for 2 days, so you know it was delicious, and addictive. Decide for yourself what is the best, I enjoyed anything chocolate and was not disappointed, so scrumptious!!

Visited in September, we got two peanut butter cup cupcakes. My husband absolutely loved his, I'm partial to our home specialty bakery myself so it was good, but not what I'd crave. Small place so be prepared to get them to go. Whomever waited on us wasn't the friendliest but could've just been having an off day.

Waistlines be warned...this is NOT for the faint of heart. Red Velvet is my favorite but I recommend you find out for yourself!

Beautifully decorated and delicious tasting cupcakes are a treat here. Seating is limited. They have containers to keep the cupcakes steady as you take them home.

I have visited Traverse City twice and twice visited this shop Twice during each visit (yes 4 visits). THIS IS MY FAVORITE CUPCAKE SHOP EVER! My favorite is the champagne cupcake. I wish they could open a store closer to Detroit or @ least in Great Lakes mall or figure out how to ship successfully to Detroit, life would be... More

This amazing company made the cupcakes for my wedding! WHAT A HIT! Everyone raved about them! :) I was so happy we decided to go with them instead of a traditional wedding cake vendor. You will not be disappointed! My dad is now addicted to the cupcakes and requests me to bring him one every time I go to visit... More
