We stopped in here and had cupcakes. I loved that you could get a glass of wine too. My kids loved watching them make the cupcakes. My favorite cupcake was the the strawberry which went great with my bubbly.

So was just there this past Sunday and had the vanilla and the red velvet cupcakes to die for. Yes you will need two one for there and one for that late night snack. They wine and beer list are just a added touch of pairing the two together.enjoy

We stopped in as we walked around the area. They had a few different varieties of cupcakes but of course we stuck to the classic kinds--chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet. Cupcakes were moist and tasty. We washed it down with bottled sodas. They encouraged you to recycle your bottles there. They had a window to the kitchen where you can... More

Creative, delicious, and freshly-made! You can see into their kitchen and watch the deliciousness happen. They have favorite flavors in one case and in the other case, they have their theme cupcakes that change every week. This week, their theme was Game of Thrones cupcakes! They also offer beer and wine pairings with their cupcakes. Truly a unique cupcake shop... More

We sampled cupcakes last Saturday as part of our River City Tours food tour of Carlton, and the cupcakes and the shop were the sweetest portions of our tour! An Oreo Cooke base, a dark chocolate cupcake, and luscious peanut butter cream cheese frosting-- yum! Gluten-free Strawberry Cupcakes, moist, tasted of fresh strawberries, capped with Strawberry Buttercream. These folks know... More

Carytown Cupcakes was on our list of places recommended by our friend who visited the area last year. Unfortunately, we were disappointed to find the doors locked and a sign in the window "Closed for Today." Workers were inside. Looked like they were painting. The streets were packed with tourists and customers. Business must be good for them to close... More
