A little pricey but overall good cupcakes. Waited quite a while to be waited on until sales person got off the phone. But to be fair we have all had calls at work at inopportune times.

Love the ambiance as well as the cupcakes. It’s great to stop in and get something to satisfy your sweet tooth or pickup enough for an event or family. Nice selection of flavors – mini’s and full-size. The staff are very nice and helpful.

We had CC prepare a two tiered cake for our daughter's wedding. It was beautiful. On earlier visits we taste tested a number of their various cupcake cake and frosting flavors -- outstanding.

We have been to Colonial Cupcakes both before and after being gluten free. Both are great, but the gluten free cakes have to be the best. We get them for birthday parties...and everyone raves about how amazing they are. It's not "for a gluten free cupcake, those are good". It's simply "those cupcakes are amazing". Lemon, chocolate, red velvet...all amazing.... More

We visited Colonial Cupcakes this past weekend when we were looking for a little treat in Fredericksburg. We're all familiar with a cupcake shop or bakery, but this quaint place does things a little differently. You get to choose your cupcake flavor AND what kind of frosting you want on it. The day we visited, they also had mini "mystery"... More

We got several combinations of cupcakes and icing and we think that the icings are the best we're had. Light, sweet and flavorful on the cakes. The cakes are just so so, unless it is fresh from the kitchen. If you make a cupcake sandwich - it is the best....

Liked this shop for their different take on cupcakes. You choose your flavor cupcake from 2 or 3 different flavors, liked being able to choose the frosting I wanted, out of 4 kinds, and then the sprinkle bar to decorate them. Like the comfy seating area with couches. Also like the free cupcake we got when buying two, cause of... More

I like that they have all sorts of flavors to choose from. You can get some crazy frosting on your cupcakes. The price was too much for me. The cupcakes were not all that special. What makes them unique is the flavoring. Nice atmosphere and great location. I love that they offer a seating area inside and one outside in... More

Good, but the icing is too sweet. There are some interesting flavors, but it's hard to taste anything but sugar.

We stopped in so my 4 year old could get a cupcake. I like how you can choose a cupcake and choose the icing you want. They put the icing on fresh which is nice. We went in around 5 pm on a beautiful Saturday so I am sure they were coming off a busy day, but unfortunately they didn't... More
