“Good looking cupcakes but on the dry side”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We ordered the caramella, red velvet and buttercup flavors to take back to our condo. The cupcakes have good flavors but the cakes are dry. I wish I had a chance to try other cupcake stores in Vancouver.

“Good cupcakes”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Cupcakes are fresh and delicious. There are many flavors to choose from.

Regular sized Cupcakes are 3.50 each.
Large (huge) cupcakes are 10.00 each.
They do sell mini cupcakes as well.
Prices are a bit pricey but it's good to treat yourself or someone once in awhile.

“Good product but pricy”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Admit it you'd only go because you need a sugar fix. Cupcakes is a novelty idea for the soon-to-be-married crowd that has extended into the drive-by sweets business. Their frostings are always interesting as a way to get over your sugar fix.
