Love these cupcakes. Everyone in our family can eat them, despite our food allergies and intolerances. Great for special occasions or just because.

They didn't have the coconut or lemon cupcakes, which was a disappointment. The red velvet cupcakes were average.

I called ahead to order cupcakes to be picked up on Sunday for an office event on Monday and because I would need to hold them over a day, they had double wrapped my cupcakes double in plastic wrap to keep them moist. The service was great and very thoughtful of them to go to the effort of encasing the package in plastic to preserve them. Plus, the special flavors are all awesome and amazing so far.

Not so many choices like I have seen in other places. But the once there looked good. Bought it for a friend who is fanatic about cupcakes.

The cupcakes and service are excellent. Some days they have more of my favorite flavors than other days. Always good.

Most of the flavors are standard fare--chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, with a few interesting ones like chocolate peanut butter, strawberry, and flourless chocolate. I would have liked to see more creative flavors, but those are apparently seasonal or holiday-related.

Call ahead before you go to make sure they have the cupcake flavors you love! They rotate flavors every 2 weeks.

From Our Editors

Each of the 100 cupcake flavors served at Cupcakes Actually was conceived by resident pastry chef and self-described cupcake snob Sue. Sue's mastery of mini cakes actually began in her home kitchen, where she often whipped up treats for family and friends. Word-of-mouth made her cupcakes so popular, though, that she and her sister, Jen, decided to open a dedicated cupcake bakery so they could keep up with the orders without outsourcing work to elves. Today, they run not one, but two cupcakeries where the sweet repertoire includes four original basic flavors—chocolate fudge, flourless chocolate, red velvet, and vanilla bean—and a slew of specialty filled and seasonal varieties ranging from banana split to chocolate Guinness. But while cupcakes are the specialty, they aren't the only sweet treats being churned out: Sue and Jen also oversee a gourmet coffee bar, and make breakfast pastries and creamy gelato in-house.
