The reviewers who cited the friendly service had a much different experience than us. The girl who helped us indifferent. The cupcake had a mound of icing, an ice cream scoop shaped dome. The chocolate cupcake was lacking flavor and the icing was fair. I can't recommend this place.

I have been to this bakery many times! They are always very friendly. They have many options to choose from, which is nice. You can also see what the options are online through their calendar. They categorize by their daily offerings and their special cupcake(s) of the day. I used this bakery for my "reveal" party - they were able... More

This is my favorite cupcake place. The cupcakes are expensive but well worth the treat! I'd rather have one of these than a drink at Starbucks for less money!

They provided cupcakes for my sister's sweet sixteen! Perfect flavor and frosting! Love the Red Velvet. Also used them for my Grandma's 85th Birthday!

Cupcakes were dry and lacked any good flavor. Frosting was mediocre at best. Tried 4 different kinds and still didn't find one that was worth what we paid for them. We won't be going back

I'm really torn here.... The cupcake was pretty good however I feel like the options I saw online verses what they had in the store was pretty disappointing. I had the black bottom which was a good chocolate cupcake but I was really looking for something wow that I truly didn't find here and for almost 15.00 for four cupcakes... More

A local, I've bought from here several times for different visitors and family. The cupcakes are always left over or only partially eaten, even by the icing freaks. Very pretty on a table, but I prefer Cocoa Bean, AKC, or even Moveable Feast for desserts that are a hit with guests.

Had a meeting at Geneva Lutheran Church across the street and notice The Latest Crave. Timing was excellent because the next day was my twins' birthday, so I bought two cupcakes. The review is: OUTSTANDING, say my kids. The owner (?) was very friendly and helpful. Definite recommend.

They have great cupcake flavors here and the product quality is outstanding. My only wish is that they offered the cupcakes in a smaller version as well. That way, you could sample each flavor instead of eating the whole thing. We cut ours in half so we can all share.
