Cupcakes galore! The flavors are imaginative and the cupcakes themselves are delicious. Friendly staff with great food. It's on my must list for Princeton!

The cupcakes are just OK, not real tasty and too sweet. Go to bent spoon if you want really good cupcakes.

I've tried to bring a flavor of the us back home, and choose this place that came highly recommended. The flavors are very rich and clear, the choice is very big, and the colors and smells delicious. I found the cupcakes a bit rich and heavy for my taste, but that's more personal. Very easy to transport, well packaged.

Bakery is located in downtown Princeton. Parking is somewhat difficult on the weekend. Bakery offers many types of cupcakes. Cupcakes are very good, but it has a lot of icing, which was very sweet. If you are a fan of cupcakes, this bakery is for you.

Visited bakery in the middle of Princeton downtown. They offer variety of cupcake frosting on top of basic cupcakes. I was hoping for something different, something unique and fresh based upon so many excellent reviews but looks like this place is offering mainly standard stuff. End up buying their pre-made assorted mini cupcake box but find it too pricey for... More

These butter cream iced moist chocolate cupcakes are delicious and much less sweet than those sold by some of their competitors. These are cupcakes that you wish to savor slowly enjoying each morsel. There were so many types to choose from that I selected four cupcakes which I took home and cut in half. This way, my husband and I... More

There are always so many cupcakes to choose from here! They also have normal sized, and mini-cupcakes, which are perfect for birthdays and parties. The only complaint is that every cupcake they make is very sweet. Most people I know like it, but it is not for me.
