I'm a sucker for a "fancy" cupcake. The creations at House of Cupcakes do not disappoint. I've tried a few, but I think my favorite might be the cookie dough! It is just so delicious to have a glob of cookie dough baked in the middle of a cupcake! The prices are pretty decent too, very comparable to what other... More

Lots of flavors, often changing. A little pricey, but it is Princeton. Overall, good value. Worth a visit. Closed for renovations as of June, 2014. Should be open soon in a larger location next door to the original location on Witherspoon street.

House of cupcakes is so good that they had to move to a larger location. I especially like the mini cupcakes so you could try more than one. We actually got a 12 count assortment!

Great Cupcakes. Great Toppings, some very different toppings too. They won "CupCake Wars" . Not a cheap bakery, but it's nice to stop in and get a cupcake then walk around Princeton NJ Cakes are moist, many different toppings to choose from.

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
