Kept walking by this place on my way to a conference 3 days in a row, stopped in before they closed (closed when last cupcake is sold) and was not disappointed-- moist, delicious fresh baked mint cupcake. Yum! Worth the $2.95!

Don't get me wrong, I tried a red velvet cupcake. I like to consider myself a cupcake connoisseur and it was just okay. I really wanted to love it but I love local businesses and their shop was very cute. Worth the stop.. cupcake was moist and good just not my favorite red velvet!

We were fortunate to find simply cupcakes and be able to use them for our wedding. The cupcakes are great, everyone enjoyed them. We served red velvet, peanut butter cup, triple chocolate and key lime. Every cupcake was beautiful. The only disappointing thing is that they advertise delivery within 10 miles, but refused to deliver our 200 cupcake order that... More

We tried this place the first year they opened, bought a dozen cupcakes then. Again, this year we bought another dozen, and were still disappointed. First, the girl "helping" us, couldn't have been more disinterested in explaining ANYTHING about the variety of cupcakes available that day...second, these are NOT CHEAP, and I could excuse the first time (MAYBE) but now...

We stopped in for cupcakes on the way out of TC. I had the chocolate peanut butter and hubby had the banana cake. These were both great choices! The frosting was exceptionally good - wish they had a location in metro Detroit! Would definitely go back again when in TC.

If you want a taste of France without the travel expense. Stop in for a Macaron treat at Simply Cupcakes. Len Mayhew has mastered the art. of making the Macsron as adapted for La Duree of Paris by Patissiere Desfontaines They are not easy to make but Len makes them easily. He is awesome and so are they

It was our anniversary so I stopped in to get a couple of cupcakes for after dinner. I asked about having a number put on them but that was not available. Since it was our 50th., the young woman looked around and found some golden hearts to sprinkle on the top of each cake! A very nice touch and the... More
