“Nasty”
Reviewed February 3, 2009

Terrible service, inedible cupcakes at exhorbitant cost.
I don't know if I came on a bad day, but the cakes were dry and unflavorful, the icing thick , overly sweet and without a discernable flavor of vanilla. Ick!
For a great cupcake/cupcakes, I recommend The Cake Stand on Folly Rd., or Cafe Cafe for a slice.

“delish!”
Reviewed December 14, 2008

After a day of shopping on King Street, Cupcake was the perfect place to sit and have a snack. The atmosphere and fun, young staff was the perfect topper to a tourist's day in Charleston. You can tell the staff loves working there! Although the selection is small, the cupcakes are amazing! They make them fresh everyday and i watched them make the frosting right infront of me! Great spot for the kids.

“so-so”
Reviewed December 10, 2008

The cupcakes were so-so and the selection was narrow. I wasn't impressed with the staff's helpfulness. They weren't rude, but not overly friendly.

“Dry and Overrated”
Reviewed August 12, 2008

We were excited to try the well advertised cupcakes of Charleston. We ordered a half dozen in a variety of flavors. They were all dry and tasteless. Way too much icing! We had to remove about 3/4 of icing, and it didn't even enhance the taste of the cupcake. Pricing was crazy high for low quality goods. We recommend a trip to either the gelato store by the Visitor Center or Three Cookies (on East Bay). These two stores offered quality products at affordable prices. It's too bad Charleston critics aren't all over these two gems. --MN
