Look for the pink storefront. They have a wide array of cupcakes. You can’t go wrong with the flavors. They aren’t the largest designer cupcakes on the market (for $2.75 each), but they are plenty big. They also serve wines and craft beers which broadens your snack options considerably. It’s worth a stop.

I was coming from Maryland going to SC and exited off just to go to Carytown Cupcakes....Needless to say we should have kept going...we bought a dz cupcakes for $30.00...strawberry shortcake, oreo with peanut butter, red velvet, lemon, and carrot cake...the strawberry shortcake cupcake was very dry...the lemon was nasty with no lemon taste the only good cupcake was the peanut butter...Needless to say I won't be visiting again

Dawn and her team will delight you with a selection of flavors you may not have considered on your own but will dance across your mouth making the simple indulgence of a cupcake worth every bite. We have savored gourmet cupcakes from Florida to New York and for us these rate at the top of our list. If you are fortunate enough to find some savory flavors do try one - I found lemon with any type of spice to be lovely. As an added bonus you can find doggie treats for your furry friends!

Stopped in this place on a whim. I bought six cupcakes. My favorite was the ice cream sundae. The hummingbird cupcake was good too. Didn't really care for the Oreo peanut butter. Wish they had more non-vegan choices, though.

I've been to plenty cupcake stores, but this one takes the cake :) The blackberry peach basil cupcake was THE best cupcake I have ever had. All the flavors were delicious. They have a menu of classics as well as unique flavors that change often. That being said, I would revisit this store often! The owner and employees were all kind and were happy to answer any questions!
