Yummy and Original

We are so glad that we decided to go with Cupcake Downsouth for our dessert option at our wedding! Not only were the cupcakes absolutely delicious, but they look amazing as well. Our guests loved them and were still talking about them days later! We ordered 10 dozen mini cupcakes and a single layer cake. All came out beautifully and were displayed perfectly. Kaley was a pleasure to work with and we'll definitely be recommending Cupcake Downsouth to anyone looking for an alternative dessert for their wedding day!
