Dawn and her team will delight you with a selection of flavors you may not have considered on your own but will dance across your mouth making the simple indulgence of a cupcake worth every bite. We have savored gourmet cupcakes from Florida to New York and for us these rate at the top of our list. If you are... More

Stopped in this place on a whim. I bought six cupcakes. My favorite was the ice cream sundae. The hummingbird cupcake was good too. Didn't really care for the Oreo peanut butter. Wish they had more non-vegan choices, though.

I've been to plenty cupcake stores, but this one takes the cake :) The blackberry peach basil cupcake was THE best cupcake I have ever had. All the flavors were delicious. They have a menu of classics as well as unique flavors that change often. That being said, I would revisit this store often! The owner and employees were all... More

The people at this shop are really nice, and the cupcakes are excellent! Every month has completely new flavors, so even if you have been there before, go again and expect a brand new experience! It's a perfect little treat after walking the streets of Carytown.

I recently went there for my birthday. The appearance is great, but it turns out thats all they have going for them. I was enjoying my coffee watching the girls make delicious cupcakes through the glass window when I saw a girl eating a bag of chips and what looked like to be her lunch OVER THE CUPCAKES. Then she... More

We stayed at Grace Manor Inn and were treated to cupcakes from here with our breakfasts. What a find, the tiramisu and salted caramel were way over the top. I had to stop in and buy a few more to enjoy so we bought eight for later. They had a Mother's Day cupcake with an orchid flower on top which... More

The shop is quaint and welcoming, with a large viewing window where you can sit and watch the team decorate cupcakes. The ladies were so proud of their flavors and took time to answer our ingredients questions and make recommendations on their most popular. We tried the Lemon cupcake with cream cheese icing and it was delicious. Then we tried... More
