My wife and I were visiting the shops of Rockport and wanted a little break. She was looking for maple walnut ice cream. Rockin' Cupcakes had a huge selection and really great maple walnut ice cream including walnuts in every bite, according to the 'taste expert' - my wife! Usually I'm waiting for her to decide but it was me... More

We visited a quite few ice cream shops in Rockport but this one was the worst. The guy serving was as miserable as sin and the ice cream portions were not too generous compared to the other shops. Recommendation: go elsewhere, there are plenty to choose from in Rockport.

Great cupcakes and ice cream, little bit on the expensive side...The business is seasonal in Rockport, so it's understandable. Parking is hard to find in downtown, I would recommend if you use the trolley service to get to Bearskin Neck. Saves you the headache of looking for parking during the busy summer season.

The cupcakes at Rockin' Cupcakes were fantastic. The cake was moist and the icing, which I am very picky about, was amazing. The owner also took the time to give us tips on other locations to visit. All around great experience.

I stopped in for a couple cupcakes and they all looked so good, it was difficult to choose.. I bought a yummy strawberry cupcake with fresh strawberries in the batter and a yummy strawberry butter cream frosting and a chocolate peanut butter cup, a chocolate cupcake with a delicious peanut butter frosting with chunks of Reese's peanut butter cup folded...

we've only stopped in for ice cream but it is excellent. There are quite a few flavor choices so I'm sure you will find several to your liking. The scoops are generous.

My wife and I stopped here for ice cream. The scoop sizes were large and generous. They serve Giffords ice cream which is not my favorite, yet quite good. Seating provided outside where we people watched while enjoying our cones.
