Take it or leave it...not a sweets guy

The wives had to stop and it was next door to our hotel. Tried two cupcakes one was light, airy and not to rich. The other dense and too rich for my taste but I am not a cake lover. Me personally, I would not make a special trip but they must be doing something right as most people rave... read more

Got a take out before leaving Nashville. Not bad very heavy on the tummy though. I still think the cupcakes you make at home are the best

We decided an after supper dessert would be in order. We were disappointed to find the selection was greatly limited at 8pm in the evening. Go early if you want any popular flavors.

I just discovered that there is a chain of these bakeries, and I couldn't be more excited! The cupcakes we had at Gigi's were hands down the best cupcakes we've ever had. We happened upon Gigi's accidentally when we navigated to Hattie B's Hot Chicken next door. We were so hungry and the line was so long at Hattie B's... More

I stopped in after Hattie B's for something sweet and the cupcakes looked amazing. Bought a salted caramel and was disappointed in the actual cupcake. It wasn't that flavorful and a little dry. The frosting was delicious but overall, I've had better from speciality cupcake locations and bakeries.
