Cupcakes Down South

433 King Street, Charleston, SC - (843) 853-8181
Posted By Jenn Baker on 7/21/2008 2:40:00 PM
Tucked into Downtown Charleston is a fairly new specialty bakery called Cupcake. There you will find a dazzling array of flavor choices of everyone's favorite childhood treat, with a grown-up appeal. Cupcake offers nine flavors daily with a rotating menu, from classic Southern red velvet to more adventurous pina colada.

Their Rocky Road, served on Mondays during the summer, is an absolute dream. It combines dark chocolate cake, chocolate marshmallow icing, and toasted almonds, and is garnished with miniature marshmallows. It is the most delicious cupcake I've ever eaten, and prompted our daily visits to Cupcake each day we were in Charleston.

Children can't help but get excited about the flavor choices, and adults can definitely appreciate the updated nostalgic feel of this bakery as well as the creative flavor combinations. When in Charleston, singles, couples, and families can all enjoy Cupcake!

Cupcake's blueberry lemon offering consists of a blueberry cake topped with lemon cream cheese frosting, and finished with sprinkles.

For their S'Mores cupcake, graham cracker frosting dipped in chocolate ganache tops a vanilla chocolate chip cake.  A graham cracker and two mini-marshmallows garnish the top.

Once you walk in, you are greeted by the flavors offered that day.  Since the menu changes daily, every visit can be a delightful surprise!
