We have purchased cupcakes here twice now, both times for family birthdays and this last time, we got a really great sample set. Talk about scrumptious, these people use genuine buttercream icing !!! Ok, you are probably asking yourself if these cupcakes are fattening - and of course they are, but they are so good, that you will find an... More

This cupcake shop is a little gem. My husband and I visited the place twice while we were visiting Sarasota for the beaches. We weren't disappointed. The staff was friendly and they had a nice variety of cupcakes - mini size and regular sized cupcakes. We tried a few; red velvet, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. They were all moist, fresh...

I had heard these cupcakes were good, but even so, I was surprised by HOW good they really are. Probably the best cupcakes I have ever had in my life. Seriously. I was visiting from out of town, and these cupcakes are so good that I now have them shipped as thank you gifts to my customers and vendors! Simply... More

Heavenly Cupcakes Bakery is like a little bit of heaven for customers with a gluten allergy. Many bakeries GF cupcakes are dry, and only available in chocolate or vanilla, but this wonderful bakery makes a variety of delicious, moist flavors. As a snowbird, I look forward to our annual trip to Sarasota and to Heavenly Cupcakes.

Local and delicious, and they offer gluten free cupcakes which you would never know are gluten free! I am gluten intolerant, so to be able to enjoy a great, moist cupcake is such a treat!

We wanted to pick up some "thank you" cupcakes to give to a few people. We were happy to go when they had a special on their small size cupcakes. They were reasonably priced. Staff was friendly and helpful.

After a bike ride into Gulf Gate, I treated myself to a Wedding Cake Cupcake. Very Good! My friend had a chocolate cupcake that she said tasted like a Buckeye, those of you from Ohio know what I'm talking about. I am unsure of its actual name.
