The cupcakes may look pretty, but they are dryer than sand. If you are looking for a nice moist cupcake, there is no need to stop here. This bakery even started selling macaroons, but for some reason they change more than the French bakery on Mary Esther Cutoff. Trade marks of a moist cupcake: no crumbs on the table as... More

There were so many options at A Cupcakery By the Sea that I couldn't pick out the one cupcake I wanted for my birthday so I did the unthinkable and asked the proprietors to pick out six for me. They did not disappoint. We got Lemon Raspberry, Salted Caramel (my fave and the one I ended up eating for my... More

We were absolutely THRILLED with the quality of the cupcakes and macarons. The flavors were unique and they looked absolutely perfect for our wedding. The staff was amazingly courteous, helpful, and responsive. They surpassed all of our expectations and we would definitely recommend them for future events.

We arrived around 3:15pm and they were sold out of cupcakes already. So we got creative and tried other treats--all were fantastic! We will go back earlier next trip to try a cupcake!

My pregnant daughter had her ultrasound done to find out the gender of her baby. Her doctor put the gender in a sealed envelope and my daughter gave it to Vanessa Poch, the owner, to put inside a cake to be revealed at a "gender party"! What a wonderful day when we found out it's a girl! The Cupcakery did... More

I will start by saying that the cupcakes I had were very good. The reason for the four star rating is for the selection and lack of discriptions. My favorite one I tried was the movie madness; Sweet corn cake with salted caramel frosting with popcorn and a caramel drizzle. I was skeptical of the sweet corn cake but it... More

When I walked into the shop I felt at home. I loved how nice the staff were as well as the owner, Vanessa. I did a cupcake tasting and Vanessa helped me with my order. I ordered a small 4" cake that would be filled with either raspberry or blueberry icing, it depended on the babies gender. I also got... More
