Loved this find. We were walking on King street and saw the cupcakes. These were the most, moist, flavorful little gems. The buttercream icing is delicious and the cake so moist. They don't scrimp on the icing. The best cupcakes I've ever had. We made two trips in two days. Couldn't get enough of them! Chocolate on chocolate was my... More

My teenagers wanted to visit cupcake since we kept seeing their vans everywhere. Went to cupcake on King Street on Saturday night. I asked about mini cupcakes, since all I saw were regular sized ones. She looked at me like I was an idiot, and said, "We put those out at 10 am." That's it. So I guess I was... More

I have had 2 dozen of these bad boys. They are fantastic. It is higher end bakery, a dozen costs $32 but the cupcakes are worth it. Our family gets every flavor, then cuts them in half. You can share, they are sweet enough and big enough to share one! So a dozen should last you a while. Do no... More

After a great lunch we headed for a small mini cupcake here. Don't get me wrong I could have eaten the big one, but the mini cupcakes are a perfect little treat in the afternoon. Moist cake, lots to choose from and great frosting.

Definitely worth the stop in! We got 4 cupcakes for around $12 and they were worth every penny. The only disappointment is that they weren't selling the Salted Caramel Chocolate the day we were there .

Cupcake is another kid rip off in Long Point shopping center. I took my grandchildren here for a special "cupcake". First of all it is very expensive, average $5, but the cupcake was nothing so special to justify the price.

We enjoyed a lunch dessert here at Cupcake - it is a little place with a few tables - definitely adequate to sit and enjoy a cupcake and be on your way...to walk off that delicious goodie! There are standard flavor choices and special flavors baked for each day of the week. I had the salted caramel chocolate and my... More

I love baked goods of all sorts so I usually choose to try cupcakes when I travel. These cupcakes were great! One of the best icings I ever tasted and the cake had a good flavor. These do not take the spot of my favorite cupcakes because of their size. I prefer a larger one for that price. But if... More

We went to Cupcake at least 3 times while on our 5 day vacation. They have a big variety, and about half of their menu they make every day and half of the menu varies daily. The cupcakes are on the smaller side, but they are reasonably priced and I didn't feel sick after eating them like I do with... More
