Had to stop in for at least one!

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!

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

We've hosted the dessert stop for a progressive dinner and a "Soup Night" amongst other meals for family and friends. we always stop by Simply Cupcakes and grab a few of the various flavors to serve for dessert. Spilt into four pieces, guests can try a Silly Rabbit, Red Velvet, etc. Such delicious cupcakes made with care and finesse. Don;t... More

Let me start this by saying hubby says that I'm a cupcake nazi. This is my favorite place for cupcakes. I've planned 2 trips to traverse city just to go here since discovering this gem. My ultimate fav is the blueberry blast. They are light, fluffy, moist, rich and tasty all at once

We visited this cupcake place at noon and there was nothing left to choose from. I would say to go earlier in the day.

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!
