Awesome cupcakes

Been to this location, and their East Brunswick location, and never a disappointment. Awesome selection, decent service. Tasty cupcakes. Would be nice if they served something labeled for those with allergies...like with peanut allergies.

We stumbled on this wonderful bakery shop on the way back to the parking garage. There was a huge selection and each one had a generous serving of frosting. It's a little pricey but you definitely get what you pay for in quality. For Food TV viewers, this bakery won "Cupcake Wars" recently and it's well deserved.

We stopped in House of Cupcakes while visiting Princeton over the weekend. We were immediately impressed by the huge selection on display. They offer buy 5 get one free and it was hard for two of us to limit ourselves to 3 cupcakes each as it was so hard to decide amongst all the fantastic flavors. We really liked that... More

Expanding to the old Ferry House location, and painted the color of a Tiffany box, I wondered how they would fill the vast space. Fill they did and every single choice is better than the next. The German Chocolate is out of this world. Fabulous in every way!

This is by far the best cupcake selection that I have ever seen. I finally decided on cookie dough. It was fabulous, but there were so many more I wanted to try. Kit Kat, S'more, cookies and creme....where does it end!!

Ordered a birthday cake from them in January 2015. I gave the order over the phone and they required that I also email the order too. I sent them the photo for the edible image as well. I asked that the cake be made up of 50 cupcakes. Total cost came to $150. When we got to the party I... More

Even small cafés in rural Pennsylvania offer gluten free baked goods but not The House of Cupcakes? A true test of a baker for certain is to master a GF cupcake

The House of Cupcakes is riding the cupcake craze seen all over the food channels. They won one of those TV contests and that has made them a local point of interest in Princeton. The cupcakes are really quite good, both presenting unique combinations and everyday favorites. They are pricey for each cupcake, but at least you won't eat too... More
