“Nice location, caupcakes were average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

This place is convenient but the cupcakes were dry and the service was a little off. I waited at the counter for about five minutes before a staff member finally came out of the bathroom and came to the counter. The cupcakes weren't bad, but there are better places in town. If you are in the area and want something sweet drop by, but I wouldn't make a trip just for this place.

I treated myself to a New Years Eve sweet at the Cupcakery and it was delightful. Look forward to future enjoyment of their goodies.

“In search of a sweet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

On a girlfriends weekend we were staying at the Worthington and made the short walk to The Cupcakery. There was a fair selection of cupcakes. I couldn't say the cupcake was bad but there was nothing distinctive about it. I am unaware of any other cupcake places within walking distance so this was the only option. Wasn't horrible, wasn't great - average. The cake part was not dry but didn't have a lot of flavor. There was a lot of frosting but again not a lot of flavor to it.

“Pre-Show Cupcakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

The Cupcakery is a frequent stop when I go to Sundance Square. It is located directly across from Bass Performance Hall, so it’s a perfect location for a pre- or post- performance sugar rush. They often have a special cupcake designed to match the theme of whatever the performance is at Bass. Cupcakes are a bit pricey, but I justify that to myself by thinking of them as part of the treat of going out, just as a nice dinner is. The business occupies a small space, and there are only a few booths that seat two people each; perfect for a date. They even have champagne available. Because of the price, it’s not somewhere I’d considering going to if I needed a number of cupcakes for a party.

Their cupcakes all look delicious and they use plenty of icing, which is something I like. If you don’t care for that much icing, you can always scrape some off. I have tried many of their cupcakes and found that some are better than others. Their vanilla and chocolate ones tend to be disappointing. What they do best are the ones with a fruit-flavored cake. Those tend to be moister and have a better flavor.

TIP: They sometimes have a discount for people attending performances across the street if you show them your ticket.
