In April 2014 when I was on Sanibel and this was closed. Such a shame. The cupcakes were yummy and the owner very friendly and personable.

From some of the reviews here one would think these were the best cupcakes on earth...I have had better cupcakes many times from supermarket bakeries. I found one to be disappointingly dry (death by chocolate), the other one (key lime) was good. My son said...More
