Cupcakes are a little dry but still pretty good. I love all of the deserts here. I picked up some cupcakes and other deserts for a late night snack. The icing on the red velvet was great.

The kids loved it here. It was very crowded on a Saturday. We got 6 different cupcakes and all were very good. We also ordered the Macaron Bites Mixed and the kids loved them as well. Amazing place for unique cupcakes.

We have been loyal customers at House of Cupcakes for years and have noticed that some of the popular cupcakes are changing - for the worse. One of the most popular (the chocolate cream filled - similar to Hostess) has a new chocolate coating a...More
