Good, but they sell out fast

If your wanting a cupcake, get there early. They sell out fast. I was walking around after lunch when I decided to stop in. They had very little left. Good cupcakes!

We took a variety of cupcakes. The red velvet was lovely, the wedding cake....someone was very heavy handed with the almond extract. Would not go out of my way to return. Gigi's is better.

I am a baker and these cupcakes are the absolute best. My favorit is the Sweet Carolina, but there are so many it was hard to decide. We loved the Red Velvet as well. Trying the Wedding Cake tonight. A must go and it is right in Coligny Plaza so not out of the way.

Please add another day of lemon cupcakes to the menu before August--which will be my next visit to HHI! This is always a favorite stop (at least once or twice) for every visit and the most recent trip did no disappoint. Cupcakes are from scratch, but as others have mentioned, they do sell out fast . Get a menu early... More

We cannot go by Sweet Carolina without stopping for a cup cake. My little one loves the red velvet cupcake. Great cupcakes means get there early for the best selection as most are sold out after dinner rush.

We like cupcakes. We are still searching for ones that compare to some we had in NYC last year. These are good. Each day a new menu of cupcakes are made up. We happened upon the lemon the day we visited. Fantastic. The standard vanilla and chocolate were very good also. There are many varieties to choose from. Right across... More

As luck would have it, I had to make a U-turn and swung into this parking lot to do so. I spotted Sweet Carolina Cupcakes and jumped at the chance to get a cupcake fix. Oh my word, I could not BELIEVE how fantastic a cupcake could be until I sunk my teeth into the Salted Caramel concoction. It wasn't... More

I love these cupcakes! I had to get my daily cupcake here while on vacation. Chocolate Peanut Butter is my favorite! My mother-in-law got the gluten free one and swore it was the best gluten free cupcake she's ever had (I didn't taste it).

It is difficult to resist visiting this little shop, but I think I have been cured. It is not that the cupcakes are bad; most are actually quite tasty. And there seems to be a bit less frosting (a good thing) than in the past. But they are small and pricey. We opted for the coffee cake muffins this trip.... More
