My daughter & I came to down town Charleston and had a wonderful time. We are fans of the food network in seen that you were on cupcake war one of our favorite shows. We decided to get 4 of your cupcakes to bring home to Conway. I hate to say it but we will not be back paying $13 & change they didn’t come close to what we expecting they tried to get us to get 5 with the 6th one being free. I am so glad we didn’t waste anymore money then what we did. They tasted like an ordinary cupcake that we could’ve made at home. The icing was way too sweet. Way too much icing for the size of the cupcake. My son who’s in the Army who has celiac disease & I seen you had gluten-free cupcakes at certain times of the week I was so happy to see & was going to bring him there for one but after having the ones we had that will never happen.
