We tried the salted caramel chocolate cupcake and it was divine. Very moist, delicious filling and tasty frosting. What more could you ask for? One of the best cupcakes that I have ever eaten.

I stopped by Cupcake looking for a small piece of cake for my husband's birthday. Normally it doesn't eat cake but I wanted something small to celebrate the occasion. I brought home 3 mostly chocolate cakes. They were really pretty in the box. He said he would just take a bite of one of them. It was so tasty that... More

I know everyone's favorite part of a cupcake is the frosting, but I snagged a bite of my daughter's chocolate cupcake and it was divine! Moist, great flavor and a great texture. The two employees that were there were really nice and personable, too. I tried the caramel cheesecake (cupcake size) and it was really good. The only thing I... More

I had to stop here, it was my birthday and I deserve a cupcake 😁. I decided on the Red Velvet cupcake. It was very good. I ate the frosting first before I got to the the actual cake part. I enjoyed immensely .

I try to go every time. Just always dependably moist, wonderful cupcakes. They have a few tables, so you can eat there-or take to go.

If you're watching your calories, this probably isn't your place! But for a brief indulgence, it's really yummy. Only four tables, so not a lot of room. Nice folks and a good selection of cupcakes. Yummy!

I simply couldn't resist the Bourbon Pecan Pie Cupcake. It was the perfect amount of sweetness- sweet enough for dessert, but not so sweet that I couldn't enjoy it. I didn't taste very much bourbon flavor (which was fine with me). Enjoyed the bits of pecan. Perfect little dessert at the end of our food tour!

This little shop in Charleston has the best cupcakes that I have ever tasted! On our trip, we stopped several times, and the last time we bought some of the mini cupcakes, so we would be able to try more of the different flavors. My favorite was Peanuts and Coke! These cupcakes are moist and delicious, with just the right... More
