This place has a great variety of good cupcakes and they are always beautifully decorated. They will even do gluten free cupcakes upon request!

They do a great job making creative combinations and mixing up their menu. Its a little expensive for what you get though. They cost a little less than a Crumbs cupcake but the cupcakes are also about half as big.

I enjoyed it because the cake of the cupcake was moist. The frosting was piled on high. If you take the bottom off and put it on top you can eat it with little mess. I thought the size of the cake would be larger....More

Expensive for one cupcake - but totally yummy. Frosting is rich - and cakes are delicious. There are drinks available in the cooler.
