I first discovered Sweet Carolina's this past fall when I was in Hilton Head for an extended stay. We came back for a day trip and couldn't wait to have another red velvet cupcake. Sadly, although the icing was still quite good, the cake was very dry. I was very disappointed because red velvet is... read more

All enjoyed picking out a different cupcake BUT I loved the WONDERFUL gluten free cupcakes. I had been here before and know one day a week they have Gluten Free as well, so I dropped by early in week to check , I even ordered what kind I wanted. They are very good we all decided (gluten free or regular)

Seems strange to call it a restaurant, but if you like cupcakes, these will be hard to beat. The Darling Clementine is simply awesome. It is a challenge to eat just one (though the price helps); must have discipline! As with all such specialty cupcakes, you will pay for them than the garden variety; but it isn't really fair to...

Great variety of cupcakes and they change the daily specials so you get new ones you never knew. It's at Coligny Center next to Piggly Wiggly grocery store.

My friends and I LOVED Carolina's Cupcakes. We tried so many I know I can't remember them all - sweet carolina (pink with cream cheese frosting), snickerdoodle, carrot cake, red velvet, egg nog, to name a few. They were all delicious (altho the general consensus was that snickerdoodle was the best!). Very moist, lots of frosting. In fact, they were... More

Carolina Cupcakes at Coligny Circle, right by the piggly Wiggly is awesome. Best cupcake I ever had was the Italian Wedding Cake. The store is clean and well laid out and the choices are endless. It relly makes it hard to decide, so be like me and take the week to try them all.

We have walked past Sweet Carolina Cupcakes many times since its openng, and finally stopped for the first time to each have a cupcake in honor of a birthday we were missing back home. To our surprise, the lovely woman behind the counter was the same friendly and efficient server who also works at Stu's! She is fabulous, we have... More

Accidentally passed this cute little store by bike. As I had read about it before we took a stop. Had a coconut fudge cupcake which was quite delicious and big ;) Store is very clean in respect to decoration which I found to be a pretty fit for a genuine looking and friendly local store.
