Cupcakes were good. There is a chance of cross contamination at the facility but they do their best. I'd go back. The rest of the party liked their regular cupcake.

On a recent trip to St. Louis, we stumbled on The Cup. Amazing cupcakes! Fresh and flavorful, lots of selection, and the staff will wrap them for travel. I will return for the peanut butter chocolate!

The Cup and the Cakery have the best buttercream icing I have ever tasted. Go for the cupcakes, but buy a cookie, too. They melt in your mouth and are addictive.

These are the best cupcakes ever! Moist and delicious and the buttercream is outrageously good! It's really a bit addictive. The classic vanilla is my go-to except when they have the "Buck-eye" seasonal cupcake. Oy! If you are a chocolate, peanut butter fan, you'll be...More
