Some of the best cupcakes I've had in a while. Delicious frosting and moist cake. I had the black and white cupcake and the praline and cream cupcake. A must stop if you are on King Street!

Chocolate cupcake was dry. Would have liked it if it was more moist. I would probably try a different bakery. Not worth the special trip (park and walk) to the place.
