Most flavorful cupcakes ever!

We tried several varieties and they were all delicious!! From lemon to peanut butter to blueberry, they were all so flavorful. We can't wait to go back.

I visited this cupcake shop as a recommendation of a friend. I picked up two cupcakes, a lemon cupcake and a vanilla cupcake with a chocolate ganache frosting. I took them home and discovered that each cupcake has some sort of filling - a fun surprise! As an avid baker, I found these cupcakes to be very good - hope... More

This was our first visit to Cupcake Charlie's but our sweet tooth won after a full lunch. We bought the Oreo Chocolate and the Red Velvet to eat later in our timeshare room. Our favorite one of the two was the Red Velvet. It was moist and delicious! The Oreo one was good too but it didn't seem as moist... More

I enjoyed seeing that the cupcakes were made on premise! The hostess cupcake was over the top delicious. Stop by if you see it for a yummy treat!

We were underwhelmed with the cupcakes here. The young lady working in the store was very bubbly and friendly, but that didn't make up for the lackluster product. The selection was small, but we did visit in March. The Boston Cream Cupcake was not very good at all, the filling tasted like lemon and the frosting was crusty. The Peanut... More

These cupcakes are delicious!! The offer different flavors and each one wonderful! The staff was very friendly and patient as we decided which cupcake to get ! The chocolate chip cupcake was amazing. A little expensive... over 3$ per cupcake...but at least it was worth every bite!

All the cupcakes are not only delicious but very creative. They are a little pricey but MASSIVE. It is actually difficult to eat them due to their size. I am not the biggest cupcake fiend in the world, but I can say that I very much enjoyed the Carrot Cake flavor!

My favorite cupcake has always been Chocolate luvs Vanilla (chocolate cake with vanilla frosting) but today, MilkyWay stole first place. The cupcakes are always fresh and the staff is friendly.
