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 bit like Magic Shell that is quite off putting. We inquired about the change this... More

These are the best cupcakes. They are so moist and they have so many to choose from. My favorite is the German chocolate. I picked some up for my dad's birthday.

They had vegan cupcakes, which was pretty awesome. I am not sure what kind of sugar and stuff they put in them, but it was still nice to have the vegan choice. They were very sweet and delicious.

Every time we come to Princeton we always swing off Nassau street turning down Witherspoon Street (the turn is almost directly across from the Princeton front gate) to grab a box of THE best cupcakes in NJ. There are flavors for every taste and the buttercream icing is "to-die-for!" I've never had a bite I didn't absolutely love!! My favorites... More

If you love cupcakes as much as I do, visiting this shop is a must! Visiting a winner of Cupcake Wars adds to the excitement. There are too many choices - not! - all beautifully decorated and delicious. If you can't find a type of cupcake that appeals to you, something is wrong. They also have cookies, ice cream, and...

My wife's birthday. She didn't want a big cake. The kids and I thought, "hey, cupcake wars winner, we can all get something we want... what's not to like?" So we went there, drove to the beach, and had cakes by the ocean. The family friendly kind ;)

Was here a few years ago. Back today and was happy to see that they have expanded to two storefronts, expanded to more than just cupcakes(the donuts and ice cream sandwiches look wonderful) and there are some tables to sit and hang out at. We had 6 cupcakes for the four of us. I think the chocolate truffle was a... More
