I ordered a chocolate sea salt cupcake. It was very moist, flavors were balanced, and all in all it was just a really well-done cupcake. It's a bit more expensive than in other shops ($4-5) but if you're going to eat one cupcake every so...More

Adorable shop with delicious cupcakes! Stopped in on a whim during a lunch break for a teachers' conference. Clerk suggested the "Here Comes the Bride". Quite possibly THE BEST cupcake I've ever eaten.

Visited the Flying Cupcake food truck at GenCon last year and am still obsessing over their cupcakes! The chocolate/peanut butter was amazing!

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...More
