Sweet Carolina Cupcakes offers a rotating variety of fun treats. It's not cheap, but the cupcakes aren't small, either. They can easily be shared between two people. If you're in the area for vacation, stop by at the beginning of the week to get a flavor schedule so you know when they'll have what you're most interested in. I recommend... More

Yes, the cupcakes are expensive*, and they do vary in degree of deliciousness. The menu varies by day of the week. The beautiful, almond "wedding cake" cupcakes were absolutely outstanding. This is not a flavor you see in every cupcake shop, so go on a Thursday when they offer them. *We spent almost $50 after tax. (Taxes are high in... More

Prior to coming to Hilton Head, one of my wife's friends told her that we absolutely needed to get Whoopie Pies at Sweet Carolina Cupcakes. On our second day there we went to try them out, and were not disappointed. I gained 10 pounds eating just one! (Ok, maybe I exaggerated a bit...) They are fantastic! I highly recommend them....

We bought Sweet Carolina and Red Devil to try, and decided we would try other flavors next day as we got used to paying for good cupcakes at home and sometimes more than they cost here. Well...the SC frosting tasted good, RD's one - not so much, and both cupcakes were just not moist enough, they were fresh but bland... More

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...
