While the cupcakes here are small and the taste is average, the brownies were heaven, especially for a super chocolate lover like myself.

The reviews are true - cupcakes are average size (think if you made them at home), dry and way too dense. We had the Smores, Toffee crunch, Vanilla vanilla and Turtle and they were all blah. If a good place/chain like Crumbs can't stay in business, I don't expect Cake Love to last long either. Better off going to Ben... More

I bought one strawberry cupcake for $3.35. It was just a standard size cupcake. I would have received a larger portion if I had gone to a Sprinkles or even the bakery at the Gaylord National. I wanted to see what the hype was all about. I would save my money.

Cake Love had all the traditional cupcake flavors, but I didn't think they were anything special. I think it's the only cupcake place in the Harbor. I would suggest they stay open late hours when the harbor is busy and people are looking for a snack; but they have banker’s hours.

I have gone there three times Twice for pre-ordered cakes and once as a walk-in for a cupcake. The walk-in experience was mediocre with the employees being bordeline rude. The other two times we had pre-ordered cakes. They were ill-prepared and poorly decorated. The last time, yesterday, we arrived and they did not have our cake order. I had to... More

The staff was wonderful and she was gracious and gave me a stamped card for when I come back this summer. I wanted to check out the place because of the owner's story. I thought they would have been a little more moist... but they were kind of dry. I will go back again maybe earlier in the day, but... More

Stopped in here this Sunday afternoon. It was gorgeous outside, the harbor was packed. We waited almost all day for our cupcake treat. The cupcake was ok. It was I believe 3:30, there was a line, a very small cupcake selection and the reason for both, was only one employee was working. Now can you specialize as a cupcake store... More

Loved the cupcakes and much shorter lines than trying to go to Georgetown to get about the same thing!

This was my second time here. The first time, I LOVED it. And I still loved a lot about my experience the second time! Cute atmosphere, not too busy, lots of options. I got a vanilla cupcake with strawberry frosting. The cake itself was so yummy- perfectly moist and flavorful. But the frosting was disgusting enough for it to lose... More

I'm a huge cupcake fan and naturally had to check this place out. I tried their fuzzy wuzzy and their red velvet and they were delicious! The cake was moist and flavorful and the cream was very soft. However the cream was slightly watery which lost them one star on here. Still worth checking out.
