    Highly recommend!

    Our entire experience with Cupcake Downsouth was wonderful! We worked with Riann who was so friendly and accomadating right from the start. We were planning our Charleston wedding from Chicago and we decided to add cupcakes to our menu kind of at the last minute. Riann was able to fit us in for a cupcake tasting on Thursday (11/1) and had our wedding cupcakes ready for us on Saturday (11/3). We ended up ordering 15 dozen mini cupcakes for our 60 person wedding (which breaks down to 3 mini cupcakes per person). My husband thought this was too many because we had two other desserts being provided by our caterer. He predicted people would have 1 or 2 cupcakes max, but he was wrong haha. The cupcakes stole the show. I saw several people with 5-6 mini cupcakes on their tiny dessert plates. We ordered the following flavors: death by chocolate, southern red velvet, rise and grind (which our coffee addicts loved), limon blu, spiked apple pie, and vegan salted caramel. All of the flavors were delicious and absolutely adorable. They looked so good on our dessert table. My only regrets were not ordering more of the death by chocolate and vegan salted caramel (which were loved by vegans and non-vegans alike). Also, Riann was kind enough to make cute little "vegan" flags which she placed in each vegan cupcake. So happy with our experience!

    Fahlyn, thank you so much for your kind words! We're thrilled that the mini cupcakes were so popular with your wedding guests even in the presence of other desserts. (You have great taste - you ordered a lovely selection of flavors for every taste!) Your review has filled our day with sunshine here in Charleston. Thank you for honoring us by letting us be a part of your wedding day!

    To-die-for cake pops

    We used this vendor to make cake pops to use for our wedding favors. Riann was friendly & super easy to work with. The cake pops were yum!! We stuck with basic white cake but they were so moist, the best I’ve ever had!!
