Fun interesting flavors

My daughter wanted me to try the butter beer flavor from Harry Potter. It was surprisingly good. Not too sweet but a flavor I couldn't quite identify. Also tried the carrot cake. I like the fact that the cupcakes are small and not expensive so you can eat the whole thing. Also like the fact that... read more

I have been to Carytown Cupcakes many many times. The cupcakes are great, but I did not give it five stars due to the price. They change flavors daily so you have to watch for what you like, but all of the cupcakes I have had are moist and delicious. On top of that they will do special orders for... More

This is my second visit to this lovely store, I love the freshness and variety of their cupcakes. The chocolate on chocolate and carrot cupcakes are wonderful. The only thing I would say is that it would be great if they could have a little music in there as it feels quite oppressive when you are in a silent store... More

When I kindly, quietly, and respectfully asked the owner for a refund for an item I ordered but was never forthcoming by the time my party and I left, her response was [quote]: "I don't have time for this. Not happening. You're being unreasonable." She said that I should leave the store or I'd be escorted out. !!! The correct... More

I know you won't believe this .... but I would have never guessed that the cupcake I had for dessert at the Grace Manor Inn was vegan ! It was that good !!

Great spot in Cary Town portion of Richmond's west end. Surrounded by shops, restaurants, bars, and excellent people watching. The cupcakes are both tasty and small pieces of art. Plus they have a wine/beer license. Sugar and booze - its a meal.

My husband and I visited Carytown Cupcakes after eating lunch at Greek on Cary. We walked in and the place was very cute. I loved the tag line painted on the walls and the cupcake case. The lady at the register was nice enough, not very interested in customers it seemed lol. I chose the Red Velvet and Lemon cupcakes... More

Barefoot Contessa smartly stated that the body of the cupcake is the delivery system for the icing. This cupcake boutique failed in both the body of the cupcake and flavorless icing. The cake portion was dry and left a weird after taste. The icing lacked flavor. We tried eight different flavor and unimpressed by all of them. Save your time... More

They aren't bad cupcakes. They have good flavors. The cupcakes are average size. I feel they are overpriced. Not really worth the cost.
