“Expensive but tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Bought a couple of these to share with family. Very sweet and moist. Packaged in a sturdy cardboard traveling box which kept them safe and whole!

“YUM!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Cupcakes are really good (and expensive) because they use quality ingredients. Like it better than Sprinkles.

Excellent tasting cupcakes. Have had others back home, but these were extra good. Enjoyed getting them and taking back to my room to enjoy.

“You Can Only Eat One”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The reason you can only eat one is they are rich and delicious. I love frosting, but this is one of the few cup cake places I have tried that either doesn't use enough frosting or ruins the cup cake with too much. One of our favorites is the Smores. The flavor of the month this time was pumpkin with cream cheese frosting-perfect. There are tables outside so you don't have to wait to go home to eat your treat!
