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

Simply Cupcakes makes a wide variety of delicious treats. However they fairly expensive which puts them beyond consideration for me to use when I need something for larger groups.

This is definitely somewhere you should stop if you visit Traverse City! The lady who helped us was extremely nice and patient with us. We bought one of each kind of macaron. The macarons were so delicious and absolutely amazing! My personal favorite was the chocolate peanut butter one. The cupcakes were delightful too. We got blueberry-lemon, lemon, red velvet,... More

If you've always thought cupckaes were from a wrapper and a box, then you're in for a surprise if you try these. I've never been a huge sweets person, much less cupcakes, but I went on the insistence of a good friend who is a candy and cupcake lover and I was honestly quite impressed at how good a GOOD... More

They say there's no shortening in the frosting, and I guess I have to believe them, but given how it tastes I can't see what they're doing to get such an icky taste out of good ingredients. Quite disappointing. Have tried their cupcakes three times, and all six flavors we tried were, I'm sorry, substandard. Dry or bland cake and... More

Since I seem to have a cupcake addiction, I had to pull the family in for a taste! Not too shabby! It was fairly light and fluffy with a mild frosting flavor. I had the Raspberry Waltz. Daughters' had Red Velvet and Chocolate Candy Cane. Prices were average compared to normal cupcakes. Employee overcharged us but we caught mistake as... More
