Sweet treats!

I have been to Firefly Cupcakes twice now and each time tried a different cupcake flavor. I love the selection and they even offer a large array of beverages and gelato for the perfect dessert combination.

I stopped to pick up an order for a friend. I was SO tempted to purchase one of each flavor of the decorated cupcakes for my family. Then, I noticed the flies in the showcase. Yes, more than one. Staff didn't even attempt to shoo them out of the cupcake display area! Just couldn't get rid of the visual in... More

Cupcakes are cute, and look delish, but don't let that fool you. I got the birthday cake flavor, and upon taking the wrapper off, the cake crumbled, it was so dry! The icing tastes like it was store bought, (the kind they use in a commercial bakery that comes in a 5 gallon bucket). lastly, they are way over priced!

Cupcakes, cupcakes and more! Delicious, creative and not too sweet. Really nice staff and great happy atmosphere. Would definitely recommend it. My dog loves the doggie cupcakes!

My husband and I decided to spend a leisurely Sunday in east aurora and Firefly cupcakes on trip advisor seemed to have some pretty positive reviews..and my mind was swayed especially after a reviewer said it was one of the stops of a food tour that he attended... We stepped in around 5pm; there was no customers in there and... More

A friend and I made an unplanned stop after visiting Vidler's next door. They certainly have a great location! We both chose the Chocolate Explosion and had them packed to go, so I can't really speak to the decor or service. That evening when I had a bite of the cupcake I was so disappointed. The cake was very heavy,... More

They have a great atmosphere and lovely staff, but as a baker myself I just don't find anything overly outstanding about the cupcakes. I've tried s few different flavors and average it how I'd describe them all.

Made a stop at Firefly as part of the East Aurora Buffalo Bites Tour. I had the red velvet cupcake...and it was delicious. My sister had a majorly good chocolate cupcake...she let me have a bite. The display case was full of several flavors that are worth a trip back many times to try...and I will.

WE decided to stroll down from "Theas", the Ethiopian restaurant down the street and get our dessert to go. We got three atomic cup cakes and made a perfect ending to the evening.

Great place to stop for a pick me up or a special occasion! I love the cupcakes and they wrap them up so nicely when they are a gift! Lots of options if you need GF.
