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

Innovative flavors with alcohol pairings available. We were in Richmond for a quick visit and stopped here twice. Took four home! Cupcakes were so fresh you couldn't cut them with a knife..they fell apart. Will visit again when we are in the area!

Look for the pink storefront. They have a wide array of cupcakes. You can’t go wrong with the flavors. They aren’t the largest designer cupcakes on the market (for $2.75 each), but they are plenty big. They also serve wines and craft beers which broadens your snack options considerably. It’s worth a stop.

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.
