What do you want in a cupcake? If you want freshness, unique and enjoyable flavor combos and friendly service - make a stop here. I'm a fan of the Lemon curd filled cupcake but also had an Oreo cookie one and that was pretty awesome too! (perfect birthday treat!)

My daughter and I stepped into Carytown Cupcakes expecting deliciousness. Looking at the cupcake varieties, I was put off by the amount of boozy cakes they serve. Whiskey sour, raspberry stout, and about 8 other alcoholic cakes. Moving over to the regular cake window, varieties like carrot, Oreo peanut butter, red velvet, lemon lover, and a few others. I would... More

Thank you so much for supporting our small business! I'm so glad that your daughter enjoyed our Red Velvet Cupcake! In response to your concern about alcohol in our cupcakes, I think you may have been confused by the drink pairing suggestions that we have below each flavor. We only have 3 cupcakes on the menu that contain alcohol, the... More

My daughter is a cupcake lover. We went to Richmond for the weekend and went to the bakery twice. The flavors are creative, the shop is super clean, and servers were delightful. Adorable!

I was so disappointed...I originally went to pearls on libbie and broad. THE BEST CUPCAKES EVER but went to this place Instead.The amount of money I paid for 4 cupcakes $13 and they were so dry and taste like they were kept in the refrigerator. Ukrops taste better than that. Never again..I recommend Pearls.

The cupcake craze is everywhere. Carytown cupcakes started out to be terrific. The last time I was there the cupcakes were dry. If you pay top dollar at least give the consumer something edible.

Cupcakes in Carytown. I can't rave about it. However it was a nice sweet treat to an afternoon of seeing Richmond. I'd recommend a stop in if you find yourself in Carytown with a craving.

The cupcakes were amazing. They had such fun flavors. I used a groupon for it and got 6 cupcakes for $9. The staff was nice and the flavors were on point. I really enjoyed the gluten free caramel apple. Although I'm not gluten intolerant it's nice that they have several flavors of gluten free cupcakes for people who are and... More
