Cupcake DownSouth did a wonderful job with our wedding cupcakes. Everything came out looking and tasting delicious. Although they have a few locations around town, the Mount Pleasant location is where all deliveries are handled. We chose them in part because they deliver on Sundays, which many other bakeries around town do not do or aren't even open to deliver. The cupcakes were delivered on time and everything went very smoothly on the wedding day. On occasion we had to wait a couple of business days for a reply to emails, which was our primary source of communication as out-of-towners. This did not impact their willingness to work with us, however, which was greatly appreciated. We would recommend Cupcake DownSouth to anyone planning a wedding in Charleston.Sent on 08/07/2015

Instead of a large wedding cake, my husband and I opted to serve mini cupcakes at each table after the meals were cleared.Sent on 06/21/2011
Cupcake is one of our favorite stores in Charleston. My family lives there, and upon my husband's first visit to meet them and the city, we went to Cupcake after lunch. It was in the car afterwards, gorging on cupcakes in a decadent silence, that my then boyfriend turned to me, mouth full of Turtle frosting, and said, "I love you, I never want to leave this place!". So when it came time to talk about cake, we knew Cupcake was IT.
We ordered a few hundred mini-cupcakes so each guest had a few. The choices were limited (in the mini-variety) I imagine for logistical reasons. It was slightly disappointing because their best flavors were not a part of the mini options. We were allowed to choose how we wanted them decorated (small choice, but still grateful for it). They were delicious and I would do it over again tomorrow if I could.
The only other downside is that Cupcake doesn't deliver to your venue, and most caterers will not extend you the luxury of arranging their pickup. Something to consider if you don't have many friends or relatives Downtown the day of your wedding willing to help.
