Great little shop for sweets and ice cream. The ice cream we had was good and overpriced but worth the cost for the atmosphere of a small little candy shop. Would gladly go back again.

We had the chocolate cheesecake cupcakes, they were very dry frosting was hard and there was no filling. I was very disappointed I feel like I could get these at hy-vee. The cashier was not pleasant either. I tried because candle ready cakes were closed, I will definitely stick to candle ready cakes they are always so moist, have great... More

Nice little place. Not a very big selection of sweets but it was nice to pop in for a treat. Located in a beautiful 1800s home with a ton of character, just not a lot of options to choose from.

I had two amazing cupcakes. I would never have thought that a small cupcake shop in the middle of Dubuque would have had such delicious cupcakes. One of my cupcakes was a French Toast cupcake and tasted just like French Toast. The cupcakes were $2 a piece, including tax, which is a steal, especially compared to the cupcake shops in... More

From the first point of contact, they were so wonderful and accommodating, and we were really looking forward to seeing and tasting their creations. Well, let us just say that they blew us away!!! They arrived early and set up a... More

Been there a number of times, plus have had these cupcakes for different large events, its a flip of a coin. Nice selections, though they are not fresh every day. I will continue to support them though sweets are sweets, and there are a number of "sweet" types of shops in Dubuque.
