First time to a Cupcake shop! They had a great selection. We all got something different, The shop itself was colorful and interesting. My grandson enjoyed the glass lamp filled with sprinkles.

We live near enough to the famous Georgetown Cupcake (which we love) that we wanted to see how these compared. They were also quite tasty. The frosting is VERY sweet and the cake portion is a bit firmer then we are used to at GC,...More

Stopped in here for some cupcakes after a visit to the zoo. Such a great experience watching them make the cupcakes and even tho they are expensive it is so worth it ! A must go!

My husband and I both agreed that the cupcakes that we had were among the best ever. I loved the sea salt, caramel chocolate and the pecan pie. Definitely a treat worth savoring!

I got the buy 7, get 2 free deal and I tried almost all of the cupcakes they had left on display. From the basic vanilla (which was anything but basic) to the daily special of Blueberry Mojito, all were amazing!

The cupcakes are tasty but I don't think worth $3.15-$3.85 each. This are regular size. Perhaps buying more than 5 is the deal as you can get a sixth one for free. However, don't walk-in expecting to get a quick cheap treat.

They make their cupcakes fresh and have a great assortment for everyone's taste. I was impressed by the vegan options they carry.

We stopped in today before the UT/SCar game. It was wonderful! Everyone in our group got something different and we were all very impressed. Next time we come to Columbia we'll definitely stop by!

Simple shop, friendly staff, beautiful and delicious cupcakes! My daughter loved her red velvet. I had the gluten free chocolate/sea-salt caramel. It was soooo great!
