Was not impressed at all with the chocolate chip cupcake. Both the cookie on top and the cupcake just crumbled apart. It was almost impossible to eat it with a fork. The taste was OK- but nothing I'd want again- especially for the price.

Each city we try to check out a local bakery. I saw this one in the Indy magazine at our hotel. I tried the What’s up Doc carrot cupcake. The cake was moist but lacking in flavor. There was too much frosting and it was...More

Not super impressed with the cupcakes. Very dry; my Guinness and Bailey’s cupcake was barely chocolate flavored, let alone Guinness. I would probably go back during the morning hours to sample something fresh baked, and since we went at 7:30 pm it’s possible they were...More

Stopped by on our way to visit colleges in the area and purchased a few cupcakes. GF Buckeye, Chocolate. Wheat: Coconut, Raspberry, and black bottom. The gluten-free were moist and tasty. Coconut was amazing.

Adorable shop with delicious cupcakes! Stopped in on a whim during a lunch break for a teachers' conference. Clerk suggested the "Here Comes the Bride". Quite possibly THE BEST cupcake I've ever eaten.

And they're under $5. Nice balance between cake and frosting, some craft cupcake places go overboard on frosting

These cupcakes are my favorite! I love that they don't look absolutely perfect, you can tell they are homemade and a human decorates them, they don't look too perfect. They taste delicious and I love their selection of fun flavors! I am a traditionalist and...More

We grabbed a cupcake from their food truck parked outside the Convention Center in Indianapolis. They were $5 and very yummy. Larger than average. We purchased chocolate with chocolate frosting. Cupcake was better to me than the frosting ... I would like to have tried...More
