Fantastic – Fresh bread and fresh baked goods who could ask for more!! It always smells like my house growing up when my grandmother would bake fresh every weekend and that
I dont agree with the people writing bad reviews!! – I never had bought a cupcake outside a grocery store until I moved to Vegas. I heard a lot of GREAT reviews about the Cupcakery. A friend of mine brought in a dozen to work one day and I must say Fell IN LOVE. The icing is stacked on but not overpowering in sweetness. Since then I have been to the Cupcakery as much as possible buying a 1/2 dozen just for myself. The people who wrote those bad reviews must be the pocket pinchers who end up buying the day old cupcakes they sell for half price because of the "Day old." They have a sign that clearly states "Discount cupcakes are a day old." So I believe that is your fault for not forking up the extra buck to eat a fresh made cupcake. You shouldnt write bad review over it.
Loved the Cupcakery – Google Something Swanky Cupcakes for my full review.
Not THAT bad.... – I just had one this past Memorial Day weekend, and it didn't taste dry like everyone says. Course I wouldn't necessarily RAVE about it as being the best I've eaten either. It was good and tasty, but a bit sweet in the frosting. I usually love cupcake frosting, but there's so much of it, and it was so sweet, that I ended up with some frosting left at the end that I didn't eat all of.
Quite frankly, at that price, I got a better deal for a comparable (or maybe even better) cupcake at Walmart on Eastern/Russell. They made me a beautiful customized cupcake birthday cake.... with all the decorations I wanted, in the colors I wanted, for about $15 for I think it was 18 cupcakes. And the counter person was the decorator, and she did a great job! And she was nice. First time I've experienced such great serv ice at Walmart!! But if you want an alternate inexpensive option, check it out.
Yuck – I recently bought some cupcakes here and was highly disappointed. The decoration was gaudy and overdone, something a second grader would make. $2.75 a cupcake!! For what? The cakes were stale and obviously previously frozen. There is more moisture out in the desert than in these cakes. They crumbled like sawdust when I peeled off the paper. I don't think that the staff has any supervision, they seem to do what they please and are the rudest retail people I've ever come across. I've heard the Cupcakery started off well, but I just don't see what the hype is about. The other reviewer was right, I peeked in the dumpster next to the store and saw carrot cake mix and white cake mix bags.
Culinary Student Says... – Not worth it. I enjoy baking and I loved all my culinary classes that had to do with baking. I know what a good cake should taste like and these are less than good. If I turned in something with the texture and taste of The Cupcakery cupcakes I would receive a "C", no doubt. The cakes just aren't moist. Don't know how else to say it. They obviously have some talented people decorating these. They are above average on looks! (hence the 2 stars instead of 1) but just going on taste, which is the important thing, I would have to pass.
Sad but true dry dry dry – I wasn't going to write this review but after reading some of the others, I feel I must. I was one of the first to try the Cupcakery when they opened and I raved about them. Not I only rant. After about 6 months of being opened the quality dropped drastically. It has never recovered. I don?t know if it is freezing or if it is the mix. Alot of the top bakeries freeze their cakes for a short period; they stay fresher and are easer to decorate. Something has changed; sadly it shows in what they sell and how they sell. Some of the worse customer service I have ever experienced, in both locations! I miss the days of three partners. Maybe that is it, the quality left with them. ( it's ok, I found another place to satisfy my needs). This is also a very honest review, not a friend or an enemy.
IT IS TRUE ABOUT THE FREEZING!!!!! – I already wrote a review for the other one but I will share my opinion here too! My friend said that he found out from one of the girls there that they freeze the cupcakes. Then somebody who works there ot owns the store (are they a franchise?) said that they don't. Well it is TRUE!!! they FREEZE THE CUPCAKES and then sell the days later. Also, that person said they are made from scratch... WRONG! They are made from a mix. You can check the dumpster anytime and see the big bags of cake mix they use. NOT FLOUR AND SUGAR... CAKE MIX!!!!!! So they lied about that too. I am mostly ticked off because they charge $3 for a frozen, box mix cupcake and somehow keep a straight face. I think that is horrible. I will not go back there and my friend was not lying. Just wanted to clear that up. FROZEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and from a MIX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If they tell you different they are lying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I read the reviews... – ...and decided to try it for myself. There are planty of 5 star and 1 star ratings, so I was curious why such a big gap in opinion. Well, I have to say I agree with the 1 star votes. The store was cute. The cupcakes themselves were cute. However, the staff was not helpful and the taste of the cakes were DRY! Just as other reviewers had said. The cakes crumbled once out of the wrapper. Not sure why they were dry because if you look at the bottom of the wrappers they are soaked in oil. I couldn't figure it out but then again I am not an expert. Just know how I like to be treated when I go into a new place, which is warm and welcome. DID NOT GET THAT HERE! As for the product, yes the frosting was sweet and smooth but the cakes were really bad. I will NOT be returning.
These Cupcakes speak for themselves!! – FOR REAL!!! Do not pay attention to the "FREEZE THE CAKES" comment. Its obviously someone who is in competition with this place. Its probably the same person who posted the same comments on the same day about both stores in Vegas....get a LIFE!! SERIOUSLY!!! That's pretty bad when you have to post nasty comments about a CUPCAKE shop...its a CUPCAKE shop...not a restaurant. Everyone loves desserts, how can you speak ugly about it unless you have a competitive interest? And they DO have the best cupcakes in Vegas. Try it for yourself...the products ALWAYS speak for themselves. They're moist, flavorful, reasonably priced (check out New York's prices) and DAMNNN GOOOOD!!!! Stop in and try them. They have 18 different flavors. Might I suggest the MOJ. Its the Mounds of Joy...ummm ummm goooood!!!!
