We bought four cupcakes and a muffin this week and all were very good. The coffee cake muffin was a favorite as was the banana cream cupcake. You'll want to take a box home.

Oh my goodness, they are total goodness. Stop by for a cupcake but be prepared to pay $5. Pricey but sweet. Ask for their signature flavor.

These cupcakes are awesome! The best cupcake I ever had. We enjoyed the sweet carolina cupcake and the carrot cake whoopee pie. I will definitely be back before we leave for the week. Plus we love they are Marshall fans as we are from Huntington, WV as well and fans of Marshall!

These cupcakes are good. We enjoyed the Hot Fudge Sundae cupcake (escept for the nuts, just a personal preference). The Sweet Carolina was good. The icing is delicious. The Sea Turtle was good too. They are expensive, but fun for a special treat. They are also very filling so we split them.

We have tried many different flavors from Sweet Carolina Cupcakes and have enjoyed the mall. They are very large and have a lot of icing.. I wish they had one near my house!

The cupcakes were good. Yes they are a little pricey. My only issue was with the service. The lady who wrung us out was not very freindly. Places like this need to realize that they are selling the entire experience of the cupcake, not just a the cupcake. Unfortuneltly for us, the experience was tarnished by the rudeness of the...

We love to try cupcakes from many different states and we were very disappointed with this one. Cupcake itself was ok but nothing special and icing was from a can! All of this for the small fortune of $4.62 each! Holy cupcake! If you're ever in Florence, SC find "Sweets" and get an extraordinary cupcake for only $3! Don't waste... More

This was the second year to visit Sweet Carolina Cupcakes at HHI. Again, we enjoyed everyone we purchased. My personal favorite is their signature cupcake called the "Sweet Carolina" but the chocolate/chocolate one is very good too. One of my family members' favorite is the Red Velvet. They are more expensive than if you made them yourself, but they are... More

Stopped for a treat. Prices of cupcakes were $5 a piece. For us this was very expensive for a family of five. Got a couple and shared them. Cupcakes were ok.

Be sure to get there BEFORE dinner if you really have your heart set on something...they go until their sold out and I... More
