3rd or 4th time here and still no good. Cupcakes were hard as a rock and frosting tasted like they dumped a whole bag of sugar in it. For over $15 for 6, you would think they would taste better. That was our last attempt for sure. I even wonder if they give customers who eat there fresh cupcakes and... More

I so wanted this place to be a new favorite. The cafe is very nice and the hours are great! But I am always greeted by a young lady with a puss...I have tried these cupcakes 3 times hoping it was just a bad batch but find these cupcakes to be tasteless unless you like the overpowering taste of sugar....

I would say the cupcakes have drastically improved here. Tonight my family had two cupcakes, both were moist and fresh and the icing delicious. And we had a pot fresh pressed decaf coffee, fantastic! The cupcake flavor choices are creative and the staff very pleasant and helpful. A nice dessert stop in East Aurora!

Visited Firefly Cupcakes when we were in town in search of a professionally-made birthday cake. Having heard that the cupcakes were of generous size, and absolutely loving anything vanilla, I was very eager to try the vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting. At my first bite, I was saddened that it didn't have a strong vanilla taste, as I was anticipating.... More

My husband got the chocolate peanut butter cupcake and i got the red velvet--took them home to eat later at night and they were fantastic! Large, flavorful, moist, and the frosting was delish. Next time id love to sit and enjoy them in the cafe w/... More

As a treat I bought 2 cupcakes here on a Sunday morning. We were really looking forward to eating these for dessert. My Vanilla Bean cupcake was dry and very dense. I could barely swallow it. The frosting didn't have a vanilla flavor, it had a weird plastic taste. My husband's PBC (peanut butter) was just as dry , chocolate... More

I've been here before, the cupcakes are amazing. I was here the first time about a year ago and all of the cupcakes were horror movie themed (saw, jaws, the exorcist) and were a delicious! This time they were a bit more tame haha but still had some fun themed ones, the peanut butter one is heaven. They have really... More
