This place is by far, one of the best cupcake bakeries in all of Richmond! I've come here several times, and have never been disappointed. They have such a range of flavors & creations, and something for everyone. Sure to be a favorite!

There is no way that I would visit Carytown and not stop at Carytown cupcakes. A bit pricy, the cakes themselves are very fresh and tasty.

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.

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
