“Best Cupcakes in Mechanicsville”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We are weekly customers as our daughter's dance studio is right next door. The cupcakes are absolutely delicious. They change the available flavors every day and while we like some better then others, all have been wonderful. The prices are higher then your local grocery store, but the ingredients are organic and the quality just can’t be beat. Since opening, they’ve decorated nicely and added tables and chairs. It’s a great place to meet up with the girls or have a special dessert night with the family. We highly recommend them.

“Friendly and inviting...great salted caramel cupcake.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

This place is really a gem in mechanicsville. Great cupcakes. A little pricey, but apparently every cupcake bakery in the US overprices cupcakes. Love that most of the flavors have some kind of filling.. this can at least justify the price. The gelato is to die for. Had to sit and sample all the flavors and landed on the banana caramel praline...heavenly. Family loved it. The atmosphere is great but they should really consider putting up some art on the boring walls. Would liven up the place and enhance the retro feel.

“Not worth the money!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I love cupcakes and I was very excited to see that a store opened in Mechanicsville! I visited their store and bought an assortment of cupcakes, but I was left very disappointed. These were bad. The salted caramel tasted like they dropped a whole salt shaker into the sauce, you couldn't even eat it. The buttercream was not the very good; it was a bit separated and had an odd texture and greasy taste. At about $3 a cupcake, it is not something I would recommend spending your money on!

We were at the opening of Sweetly Smitten yesterday,and I must say finally there is a bakery that knows how to bake cupcakes! Not only do they have cupcakes, they have wonderful Greek desserts, and Gelato. We have purchased cupcakes from them for our childrens birthdays and they are always delicious!!! Thank you Demi and Litsa for opening your store! Anyone looking for a fantastic bakery,look no more. Sweetly Smitten is here!!!!!!!!!
