Each Gen Con, we make sure to check out the food truck from the Flying Cupcake! The only reason for four stars is that the cupcakes are often way too sweet, but if you have a serious sweet tooth, this cannot be missed!

Bought my friend a cupcake for her bday. She loved it. I love how they're big and beautifully decorated and just enough, well more than enough. But the flavor is good and always moist to perfection.

We have had many different flavors at The Flying Cupcake. Out of five of us, four of us love the Burt Reynolds cupcake the most. We did have an experience with dry cupcakes on one trip, but I don't produce perfection 100% of the time either. I wish the Burt Reynolds cupcake was on the truck too.

We came to indianapolis for a volleyball tournament and was looking for some good cupcakes. Came to flying Cupcakes and maybe because it was a Sunday, the selection very limited. I chose a wedding cake cupcake (plain vanilla with white icing). It was very dry. We bought several and at $3.95 each, I feel I wasted my money.

My fav spot for a sweet treat, the selection is unique. The cupcakes are always crafted with natural ingredients and u can taste the quality. The chocolate salted caramel, pink champagne, strawberry lemonade, chocolate ganache, and here comes the bride are all worth the try- decadent and indulgent. Prices range from $3 to $4 each well worth it and they... More

I love cake. I probably love cake too much, but I don't love pie or ice cream so I like to think my cake love is normal. Anyway, I tend to visit small bakeries and cupcake shops as we travel. A girl's gotta have her cake, right? Exactly. After traveling for several months and trying many lesser cupcakes I couldn't... More

I had the cinnamon cupcake and it was SO good. Lots of icing which I love. Perfect after dinner dessert. There a few cute little tables inside if you want to stay and eat your cupcake there.

I had the maple pecan cupcake. It was incredibly tasty, and gluten free. Everything from the looks, to taste and texture were top notch. Thank you!!

My sister and I like to try to things, and we are certainly glad we tried this place. The cupcakes were not only creative looking, but tasted very decadent. The staff were very friendly! My favorite thing is that they have gluten free and vegan cupcakes that are delicious! (:

Thank Sarah G
