“Great Variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

There is a nice variety of cupcakes, something for everyone. We had 2 cupcakes- the Ebony & Ivory and the Blackbottom. Both yummy choices. Not the best cupcake I've ever had (Elé in West Carrolton OH) but worth a stop if you need a little sugar!

“YUMMY!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Have never been to a cupcakery until going to The Flying Cupcake what a great experience. Delicious cupcakes and wonderful staff. Have since been to other cupcakerys in other towns and all fail in comparison to The Flying Cupcake. My favorite is called the Irish car bomb which is a seasonal cupcake ( March for st pats day). But have NEVER had a bad cupcake or a bad experience.

“Cute store, awful cupcakes!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012 via mobile

My family got two cupcakes the German chocolate cupcake which we threw away because it was so dry and tasteless. We also had the coconut cream cupcake which was just ok... If u want a good cupcake place in Indy go to Holy Cow, it is much better!
