“Tasty cupcakes...some toooo sweet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Bought cupcakes for dessert....they looked delicious...everybody had a taste of the four selections we bought and all agreed that the cake was moist and there was lots of icing...My problem as a baker myself is that it is overkill with the frosting but I know folks love lots...the other problem was that some were way toooo sweet and would have tasted much better with less sugar. The sugar overwhelmed the flavor of some of them especially in Sweet Carolina...sugary plus....The Cheesecake one was perfect... Folks were sitting there with their cupcakes so not a restaurant...more of a buy your cupcakes and leave...

“I could drive for hours to get the salty caramel cupcake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

If you have a sweet tooth, this is THE PLACE! It's a small local bakery with a shop in Coligny Plaza (wright next to Piggly Wiggly and the Skillets) and a huge aptitude for gourmet cupcakes. They have very clever menu options that change daily to keep you on your toes. I recommend to try it all. Locally inspired Sweet Carolina and Georgian Peach, as well as extravagant Mojito and Eclair.

I love coming here because they are consistently good. The Pink Caroline cupcake is great! Just the perfect balance of sweet.

“Yummy Cupcakes with Gluten Free Options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

It's always a treat to find gluten-free options when eating out. This darling cupcake shop has many traditional and creative options. Thursdays are their gluten-free cupcake day and my daughter had the chocolate with chocolate icing. Yum-O. I had the Sweet Carolina and my husband had the Low Country Lemon. Eat these with a tall glass of milk- you'll need it!

“just ok!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Would not be my first place cupcake shop. The cupcake wasn't a true red velvet but the icing was good.
