My granddaughter wanted a Moana themed cake for her 5th birthday. I emailed some pictures to Pearls and they were able to create an amazing cake in only 3 days that was within my budget and exceeded my expectations. The staffs customer service was outstanding. I highly recommend them if you are in need of a top quality cake.

IF You want to "experience" a perfectly made cupcake then get over to the Avenues near libbie and grove and go into PEARLS, I'm convinced that because they use plugra the awesome european butter their cupcakes are simply a cut above. I LOVE the choco peanut butter, also had the raspberry lemon.......I'm confident whatever you try will be awesome, MUST... More

Always looking for gluten free goodies. They are always dry and crumbly. Had the chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting. The cupcake was very moist and the frosting was great as it wasn't too sweet! Will definitely go back when in Richmond.

My friend had been raving over Pearl's for some time before we finally planned a time to go and it did not disappoint. I rarely eat baked goods since discovering my gluten intolerance several years ago, but Pearl's is changing that. I was impressed with the number of gluten free cupcake options in addition to the many options for regular... More

Ordered the Beerylicious Wilma Ray flavored cake for my BFFs birthday and it was so delicious! A nice hint of pink champagne next to the richness of the buttercream frosting was delightful! It was perfection! The staff were so accommodating and worked with me being both indecisive yet a tad specific simultaneously. I highly recommend going. Only reason I didn't... More

These cupcakes are, hands down, the best cupcakes I've ever eaten. They are rich and creamy and fluffy, all at the same time (is that possible?). They have a wide selection of flavors and at one point, they offered gluten-free cupcakes. Definitely a place to stop if you are in Richmond!
