Best cupcakes ever

Best cupcakes hands down. I try cupcakes everywhere I go and I have yet to find one that surpasses Cupcake Charlie's. Red velvet is my favorite, but I've tried a ton of their flavors and they're all out of this world.

Stopped by here while walking around downtown Newport. Had the chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting. Very moist and the right amount of sweet. The frosting was good too, just a bit too much. My husband had the carrot cupcake; he said it tasted good.

Awesome cupcakes and priced accordingly? I thought there was a little too much frosting but everyone else in our party enjoyed the extra.

The Boston cream cupcake was better than a slice of Boston cream pie. The chocolate coating on top was delicious and deeply flavorful. The cake was good yellow cake. The custard filling tasted fresh and made from scratch. Whipped cream rosette on top added just the right touch. Selection was a bit limited.

Cupcakes were very light and tasty. Not sugary sweet. We got vanilla vanilla, vanilla cake and chocolate icing, hostess, and lemon. We are thinking about going back for more!

We've been to a few of Cupcake Charlie's and this one was the best by far! Get the one that looks like a chocolate Hostess Cupcake, it is fantastic!! We liked the vanilla with vanilla icing and the chocolate with vanilla icing also. Our favorite by far though was the Hostess look alike!! But more than you think you want... More

I have tried cupcakes in several different cities, by several different companies, and have not been impressed. This cupcakes were amazing!! I had the lemon cupcake. Beautifully decorated, good filling, and delicious taste. Don't forget to stop by and pick one up! Maybe two!
