The menu of cupcakes changes daily. My sister and I visited on a wednesday. We each picked a different flavor to try. She had the red velvet which was moist and delicious. I had the chocolate one. The top half of the cupcake was hard. Price of each cupcake was slightly under $3.

We spent the afternoon walking through Charleston and were very tired but kept going so we could treat ourselves!! Cupcake serves several flavors every day with special flavors that change daily. We loved the peaches and cream cupcakes the day we were there. Thank you Cupcake!!

This was on my list of stops to make during our our visit to Charleston and I was not disappointed! I opted for the Cookies and Cream and it was pure deliciousness! The frosting was outstanding and the cake was very moist.

Loved this find. We were walking on King street and saw the cupcakes. These were the most, moist, flavorful little gems. The buttercream icing is delicious and the cake so moist. They don't scrimp on the icing. The best cupcakes I've ever had. We made two trips in two days. Couldn't get enough of them! Chocolate on chocolate was my... More

I asked about mini cupcakes, since all I saw were regular sized ones. She looked at me like I was an idiot, and said, "We put those out at 10 am." That's it. So I guess I was... More
