Stopped by Crave Cupcakes while wandering around Kensington and was delighted to find they had gluten free cupcakes! The cupcakes are quite good, nice and fluffy, not dry at all. So surprised and happy!

Yumm, I pick these up everytime I visit Calgary Chocolate with buttercream icing is favorite because unlike other cupcakeries, their icing is not too sweet!

Just feel that these cupcakes are nothing special. Way over priced for cupcakes, far too much icing on each cupcake and not affordable for families. Also they use to donate cupcakes to the Blood Donor Clinic on 13th Aveue & 7th Street and no longer do that! Not even the mini's.

I have always thought that Crave cupcakes were something that I HAD to try, from what I see online everyone loves them ... I didn't love them, they were wayyyyy too sweet for me! I scraped off all of the icing, and even the cake was too much sugar for me. I am very picky when it comes to baked... More

Of course Crave is known for its rich, moist, marvellous cupcakes in great flavour combinations. I was a bit skeptical when they decided to branch out into other baked goods- especially pies, as I am a serious pie afficionado and am extremely picky about pie. However, Crave's mini pies have changed my mind. In a neighbourhood with lots of good... More

I've had the cupcakes and mini-cupcakes on numerous occasions. They are so delicious. I just had a baby and bought a dozen of my favorite mini cupcakes (red velvet and the chocolate buttercream with blue icing are the best). Only reason to avoid this place is if you're trying to lose weight!

This is our "go to choice" for family birthday treats. Excellent cupcakes & cakes - always superb. The packaging is fancy, the mini cupcakes are especially lovely because everyone can choose their favourite.

Let me just start by saying I'm a born-and-raised Calgarian who has supported Crave for many years, and has had a long-time love affair with their delicious products. This is why I found their lacklustre services during my wedding so disappointing. My fiancé and I decided to use Crave Cupcakes as our 'wedding cake.' We started by booking a 'tasting,'... More

We loooove these cupcakes! The homemade buttercream icing is the best ever. Can't have a birthday without them. Gluten free cupcakes great too.

If there could be death by icing....this would be it. Best. Death. Ever. Red Velvet. Chocolate, cream cheese, peppermint. There can be only one cupcake maker. It's Crave. If you think there's better...you can shut the hell up. I'll fight you
