WOW GREAT SURPRISE

Tasty fresh cupcakes. Cute little shop parking is an issue but well worth the reward. Many to pick from not to sweet perfect little delights. I have tried numerous cupcakes in my time and these are on the top of the list.

Visit Cupcake magician in the fall, order a pumpkin cupcake and be prepared to be floored! They have a wide assortment of flavors and some seasonal surprises (like the pumpkin) that push this place over the top. They also offer mini versions that are great for a family party. They will even loan you a cupcake tier rack to put... More

I'm really having a hard time believing the bad reviews. I've been to this place a couple times and their cupcakes are extremely unique. NEVER have I had a cupcake that mimics breakfast. Their Pancake and Bacon cupcake is soooo good! I've had from there, their boston cream pie, the Elvis and cookies and cream. I'd definitely give this place... More

I went to the cupcake magician after it was recommended, and was also a prize for winning a contest, by a teacher. I didn't win but I still wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Plus the description I received was mouth watering. So I headed out to red bank to try theses god sent from heaven cupcakes.... More

We stumbled upon Cupcake Magician after having lunch in Red Bank, and decided to stop in for dessert. There was a large variety of cupcakes to choose from. I ended up getting a Peanut Butter Explosion Cupcake. It tasted good, but did not have the strong peanut butter taste I expected from a peanut butter "explosion". Overall we enjoyed our... More

With all the Greta cupcakes around, don't bother with this place. They look beautiful but they are tasteless.

We had these cupcakes for Christmas dinner dessert! I ordered in advance and they were ready and tasted marvelous! It is so nice to support a local business that makes such GREAT stuff!

Mr. Magician, I wanted to like you, I really did. I have given you chance after chance to amaze me, and quite honestly you were just..... ..another average cupcake. This place is a little overrated. Don't get me wrong, I've never had a "bad" cupcake, but it just wasn't what I hyped it out to be. I have tried everything... More

These are the best cupcakes in town. More creative flavors, fresher and moister cake, and tastier icing than Sugar Rush. And Carlo's -- with its oily, crisco-y "buttercream" -- is a distant third. The people that run Cupcake Magician are extremely friendly and accommodating. Oh yeah: the cupcakes are cheaper here, too. By the way, the magician way back at... More

An unplanned stop at Cupcake Magician in Red Bank turned out to be the highlight of my cupcake experiences! These cupcakes are delicious -- we bought the Peanut Butter Explosion, the Tiramisu, and the Chocolate Cannoli -- and it was so difficult narrowing the selection to these three. The cupcakes were wonderful! Being from Northern NJ and frequenting Manhattan, I've... More
