I go here more than I should I'll admit. The Boston Cream Cupcake is like seriously life changing. I love the attention to detail this place gives. Some of the cupcakes can be very dry though so watch getting an odd "flavor". I have noticed the ones that maybe don't sell as quick sit and dry up....So stick to popular... More

The shop is super cute! The decor is funky and fun. I love the look so much. Totally awesome birthday stop! The cupcakes are huge and tasty. There are tons of flavors to pick from. Be prepared to pay $5 for a cupcake, but it is big enough for 2.

This is our go-to place for that special cupcake treat! Love any flavor I try, and there are plenty! Staff is so pleasant, too.

Wow! I'm not a cupcake person - they're normally my least favorite dessert (except for pie, haha) - these are delicious. Took me forever deciding which one to get and I honestly don't think I could have gone wrong with any of them. If I'm in the area, you'll see me again!!

They have an impressive selection of cupcakes, cookies, and other desserts. I have found on more than one occasion that the cupcakes were slightly stale. With as much time as goes into every item, I'm sure they try to push the envelope, but at this price point, it needs to taste as good as it looks.

We ordered 4 different cupcakes to do sampling. There were probably 30 different types to choose from so hard to narrow it down. All of them look amazing. We tried the peanut butter, cookie dough, red velvet, and strawberries and cream. The strawberries and cream won the taste contest, followed by cookie dough, peanut butter, and then the red velvet.... More

We stopped by Designer Desserts yesterday to let my daughter take a look at the cupcakes. We told the clerk behind the counter we were just looking, as I was thinking to purchase some for next week. I definitely won't be buying from here after their rude service, though. One girl cleaning the front door greeted us nicely, as did... More
