My family and I visited Nora's cupcakes on a recent Sunday afternoon. There were 6-8 mini cupcakes or normal size cupcakes to choose from. My daughters wanted the Turkey cupcake, which was made of chocolate cake and chocolate frosting and looked like a turkey. This cupcake was merely okay. I think I could have made the same cupcake at home,... More

NoRa cupcake bakery smells good from across the street. And it just gets better as you walk into the door of the bakery and get a glimpse of the bakers' case filled with choices. The day I went there were numerous Halloween ones [ghost, brains, etc, etc.] but I had my list. I had seen the truck at a museum... More

I visited Nora Cupcake when in Middletown recently. What a waste of money! I was extremely excited to try their inventive flavors. Upon the first bite, I was immediately disappointed. Three out of the four cupcakes I purchased were stale - one so much so that it was inedible. It is also pretty evident that they are not homemade. We... More

We've been to this trendy cupcakery 4 times and have had both good and bad experiences. The good experiences getting a 5 and the bad getting a 2. The first time the cupcakes were moist and the frosting was unlike anything we've had. They have the most interesting cupcake ideas like the Arnold Palmer, The Irish Car Bomb, The Elvis... More

I love NoRA's Their cupcakes are always amazing and the choices are endless. The frosting is what really makes these as delicious as they are! They even have small versions of various flavors - just in case you can't make up your mind and want them all!

First tried these at a friend's wedding and my husband was instantly hooked. They are generous with their fillings and frostings and offer fun and tasty combinations.

Nora cupcakes are by far the best around. We really like the Irish Car Bomb best, but we have never had one we didn't like. They are all fantastic. The choices are many, the flavors are plenty, and the taste is the best!

These cupcakes are really all about the frosting. The cake itself tastes exactly the same no matter what flavor you get. I was told it's a secret. I suspect that the secret is apple juice??? Anyways, the cake is not good. I've tried many flavors. And there are a couple that I'm fond of. But a nice vanilla, buttery cake... More
