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.

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.
