The hummingbird cupcake had just the right amount of banana, pineapple, coconut, and cinnamon. This place is worth a visit.

I generally hate cupcakes because I am not a frosting person, I like flavorful cake. Cary town cupcakes not only have tasty frosting but the cake part is delicious too. I've been there like 3 times and every time I have been please with the freshness and deliciousness of the cupcakes! Try the sweet potato one, I was surprised at... More

Visiting Carytown cupcakes is always a highlight :) They have an incredible selection of cupcakes, and their GF/vegan choices are so yummy!! Highly recommend stopping in if you're around. They have beer/wine/coffee as well - what else can you ask for?!? 😍

After dinner with my niece, longing for a little after dinner treat, but needed gluten free and not wanting wintertime ice cream. SO HAPPY to find a great bakery that also had gluten-free treats for her! AND the cupcakes were awesome, no settling for second-best just to get gluten free. Just thrilled.

I have had cupcakes everywhere, most notably in San Francisco, with highly rated establishments. This one did not disappoint. Richmond has a winner, wonderful selection, reasonably priced with an accompanying filling, made for a delectable experience. Could have used more icing for the price, but....

I had the pecan pie cupcake and was it great! Husband said his was the best vanilla cupcake he had ever had and I make a pretty darn good cupcake at home.

I went to this shop on a Sunday, when they only had one gluten free flavour (vs two flavours on other days). Still, the cupcakes were fresh and delicious! I had the caramel apple ones, which were apple cupcakes with caramel icing and a caramel drizzle. While they aren't the best GF cupcakes I've had, they were certainly tasty.

Thank vigilantism
