Cupcake Magician
Ranked #3 of 7 Bakeries in Red Bank
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

We stumbled upon Cupcake Magician after having lunch in Red Bank, and decided to stop in for dessert. There was a large variety of cupcakes to choose from. I ended up getting a Peanut Butter Explosion Cupcake. It tasted good, but did not have the strong peanut butter taste I expected from a peanut butter "explosion". Overall we enjoyed our cupcakes, but I would describe them as average.

With all the Greta cupcakes around, don't bother with this place.
They look beautiful but they are tasteless.

We had these cupcakes for Christmas dinner dessert! I ordered in advance and they were ready and tasted marvelous! It is so nice to support a local business that makes such GREAT stuff!

Mr. Magician, I wanted to like you, I really did. I have given you chance after chance to amaze me, and quite honestly you were just..... ..another average cupcake. This place is a little overrated. Don't get me wrong, I've never had a "bad" cupcake, but it just wasn't what I hyped it out to be. I have tried everything from their Elvis cupcake to their cookies and cream, bacon and oreo. They were all good, but nothing was GREAT. Seems to me likw their frosting is a little too.....sweet/fake.

These are the best cupcakes in town. More creative flavors, fresher and moister cake, and tastier icing than Sugar Rush. And Carlo's -- with its oily, crisco-y "buttercream" -- is a distant third. The people that run Cupcake Magician are extremely friendly and accommodating. Oh yeah: the cupcakes are cheaper here, too. By the way, the magician way back at the grand opening was a hoot -- a cross between Joe Pesci and Crusty the Clown.
