“Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Great cupcakes. Moist and creamy and sweet. Apparently there are several cupcakes places in the area but this one was a great choice. I got four different cupcakes and each was yummy.

“Bent over Backwards”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I ordered cupcakes to be delivered to my hotel for an impromptu birthday party. There was a mix-up (ok, my fault) and the delivery person couldn't find me. She got all the way back to the shop, turned around and came all the way back, and still didn't charge me a delivery fee. She did accept a tip, though. $3 per cupcake, no minimum number, free delivery. And they're good, too. It was a great party.

“Darn good cupcakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

It's just a tiny little store but bursting with flavor! Loved the blood orange cupcakes. The cupcakes aren't all frosting that overwhelm you with sweetness. Great flavors. Definitely will return to this cupcake store!.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I've tried cupcakes at several bakeries in the area and Lavender Moons are certainly among the best.

They have the standard flavors you'd expect - red velvet, chocolate, vanilla, etc, but you can often find unique options as well. The size of the cupcakes is also a plus. I've seen some lately at other places that should be served on a dinner plate. These are really just right all around - in size and taste.

I had chocolate peanut butter on my last visit and my niece had vanilla with a lemon curd filling and a raspberry on top. We both left happy!
