This place has the best cupcakes you'll ever have, so you know they won that Food Network challenge for a reason. There are SO many varieties and every time you go in they will have changed slightly. The German Chocolate is by far a favorite in our house! You won't be disappointed... And take some home to enjoy for later!

Variety is the spice of life - and they have it. They were one of the winners of Cupcake wars.. Cute little storefront - and helpful staff.

Located on Witherspoon Street in Princeton. So many cupcakes to choose from. Service was fast and friendly. I ordered an M&M and a sprinkle cupcake which was delicious. I thought that they would've had a nice carry bag for my cupcakes instead of a regular plastic bag. Guess they were out of them.

The cupcake I had was dry but the frosting was yummy. I think the biggest turnoff was the person who waited on us. Very unfriendly and aloof. I won't go back because of that experience.

The lady who served me was not very customer friendly. I saw her roll her eyes and make faces of contempt when I couldn't decide yet what to order. No one was behind me waiting for their turn. Then as I was putting sugar in my tea I saw her give the same face to another customer who was deciding... More

The cupcakes they bake are out-of-this-world! I am not a big cake/cupcake fan but this place would change all that if I lived a bit closer! Last visit we bought an assorted dozen and every one of them was delicious. If I had to choose, it would probably be the caramel w/sea salt. Sooooo good! They also have mini-muffins for... More

The name of this establishment says it all (for a good time, go in and ask them if they sell cupcakes). Now I like a sinful confection as much as the next guy, but I'm not sure any cupcake, including these, is anything to swoon about. In my opinion, these are good, but not outstanding, and a bit pricey. On... More

I have been to quite a few but this place has terrific icing and cake. The proportions are great, the flavors are wonderful and the cake is just perfect. You will not leave disappointed. I've been here 10-15 times in the last 2 years.
