Purchased 4 macaroons (the one not pictured was cofee). The macaroons were fresh & yummy. The gluten-free chocolate cupcake I purchased, which had chocolate chips in the cake, was so tasty...very very very good and I would definately purchase more of them and are well worth the extra cost... read more

Try finding a good Gluten Free dessert... This is the place. Low Car and Gluten Free options so good that you will question how it could be possible. I have had dessert in Paris that could'nt beat these... Don't know how she does it.

I first had these cupcakes when our local bank was doing a special promotion "Have your cake and eat it too". They provided "Cakes in a Cup" every Friday!! Vanilla was our favorite! But ALL of them were fabulous. Moist, flavorful, icing that you really wanted to eat! (Some cupcake icing is way too sweet, but this was perfect!). After... More

I have been there twice, because after the reviews i thought maybe i just got a bad cupcake the first time. Compared to other cupcake stores i have tried, their flavors were very ordinary, even boring. I tried the carrot cake and the orange creamsicle flavors. Both of these had WAY too much icing. The icing on both was very... More

Love Cakes in a Cup's cupcakes, they are so moist they just melt in your mouth especially the chocolate cupcakes. I recommend trying their cupcakes to anyone passing through or that lives in the area, I will be back when I am in town.

I went with my family, our kids loved their cupcakes and the store, they have cartoons playing for the kids, great atmosphere. I recommend Cakes in a Cup to all families (everyone), great place to...

The cupcakes were super moist and the icing was wonderful. We bought a half a dozen so we could try six different kinds and they all were very yummy. Our son normally doesn't like cakes and prefers cookies and ice cream but he actually loved all of them to which surprised us. All I can say that they were truly... More
