We love the fall selections of cupcakes. The best way to buy them is by the dozen on Saturday before closing for a deal. Yum!

My husband and I went in about 90 minutes before they closed on a Thursday and split a cupcake (it was just shy of $6 for one cupcake...first strike). The entire time I was in the store, the two ladies behind the counter seemed inconvenienced by my presence. There was no hello, greetings, how can I help you, showing me... More

OMG I have only ever had their cannoli. I can't make myself by anything else because that is what I have to buy. Best thing ever my very first visit I was not sure about them and they let me have a whole one free so I could take it home and my husband could try it also. That kind... More

The icing bakery did a baby shower cake for my sisters baby shower. The service was exceptional. The cake was a hit with everyone. The cake was adorable, tasty, and very reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

I've been coming to this bakery for years. The cupcakes are buttercream icing are delicious. Our favorites include red velvet, chocolate with the ganache on top, and maple bacon. Recently they also began offering biscuits and bacon gravy. You can choose from regular buttermilk or cheddar. When I stopped in to try the biscuits for the first time, the owner... More

This bakery, tucked away at 261 Garrisonville Road, is just outstanding! The product, quality they put into each job, and service are all 5-stars. Of course you get what you pay for! If you're only willing to spend 50 bucks on a cake just go next door to WalMart. But if you want true professional detail, design, consultation, and an... More

We picked up our cake and it was just as described and she even threw in cupcakes too ( at no extra charge) for our graduation party. Once we cit into this chocolate cake... More

Got some of the best cupcakes in Stafford at this little shop. I bought a variety of cupcakes and did not get a bad one. They were a little pricey, but well worth the price. They also do cakes, but did not try...but I bet they are really good.

We ordered our wedding cake from The Icing...and our wedding ended up being on January 23, the day of the blizzard. Because of this, I called ahead to ask if it could be delivered on Friday (to Alexandria no less), and was told they were already coordinating with the venue to get it there on Friday. Very Professional! The cake... More
