“Fabulous Cupcakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

I went into Lavender Moon to pick up a gift card they generously donated to a fundraiser I am helping with. While there, I bought two cupcakes...Roasted Peach and Raspberry and the Flourless Chocolate one. They were the perfect size and had unbelievable moisture and flavor. I am not a huge chocolate fan, but holy cow was the Flourless Chocolate Cupcake delicious! The frosting on the Peach Raspberry was so creamy and not too rich. Will definitely return again for more cupcakes!

“Adorable and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Lavender Moon baked the cupcakes for our wedding. They were accommodating to our flavor recommendations and provided THE BEST CUPCAKES EVER! But if I have to recommend one cupcake for your visit to Lavender Moon, have the chocolate peanut butter cupcake... you won't be disappointed!

“Yummy & Creative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Popped in for a bit of a sweet pick-me-up while walking through Old Town. Hubby and I shared three cupcakes (we couldn't settle on two): Key Lime, Vanilla with Blood Orange and Cocolate & Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Hubby gave the Key Lime two enthusiastic thumbs up. Liked both the Orange & PB, though would have loved some orange in the cupcake as well as the frosting. Cute little place with red striped walls. Plastic chairs inside for those who want to sit & eat.

“Cupcakes to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

I love this little shop. Go early before they run out of the best flavors. Ok, all of them are great. The blood orange dreamsicle is one of my favorites. This time the Mexican chocolate filled one was insane. And if you ever see the raspberry thyme, buy it up. Sounds crazy, tastes delicious.

It's a small place, but there are a few seats. The coffee is okay, but next door is Grape+Bean if you really want coffee.

Get one for now and at least one to take with you. You can't go wrong with anything here.

Peculiar decor! This place is kind of weird, but charming and cute. Staff is super friendly, super sweet- just like the cupcakes! A must for cupcake lovers!
