This cupcake shop is very cute, I love the decor. The employee was extremely friendly and patient. The cupcake itself was delicious and moist. I wasn’t crazy about their frostings. They were a little too sweet and had a chemical/plastic after taste. I think if they tweaked their frosting recipe a bit and used more natural flavors then It would taste a lot better.

Smallcakes produces the absolute best cupcakes in the world! It sounds like hyperbole but it’s a fact. They have a rotating variety of creative flavors, each more delicious than the next. This is a must stop for anyone with a sweet tooth!

Nice small quaint place with added flavor. The suite is very aromatic when you walked in and was greeted with a pleasant smile . Nice atmosphere to take the little ones to. Not a lot of seating but it's just perfect for a quick sit down bite

My family and I have never been disappointed by any of their cupcakes. My daughter always wants to stop here lol. They are always fresh, moist, flavorful... never stale. Today we had the pink champagne with a whipped raspberry frosting which was a featured flavor and it was amazing! Can’t wait to try the mimosa! The customer service was awesome too. Highly recommend!

Took the kids here to grab cupcakes. Although, very tempting I did not get one due to personal diet restrictions now. Well, let just say after my little ones took bites, and expressed how good they were (odd sounds effects and such) I had to convince them to give me a bite. Oh My Gooodnessss.... Best Cupcake/Cake base I’ve ever tried. Very moist and flavorful, yet not overly sweet ! We are impressed! No embellishing associated with his review lol, seriously.

I wanted to surprise my son living in Durham NC with a cake for his birthday yesterday. Smallcakes Durham were just amazing! I live in Australia and communicated via email with the business. They were incredibly helpful and arranged delivery of 1 dozen gorgeous cupcakes which my son said were really delicious. Thank you so much Smallcakes, I really appreciated your help with this and can highly recommend Smallcakes. I'm looking forward to being able to visit the store when next in Durham!

Porcelain SAVED the day for our office today!!!! We ordered through postmates with what we thought was the Durham store but it went to the Cary store. Porcelain spoke to me once I placed the order and she made sure she had everything correct at the Durham store. When the order arrived from the Cary store we were missing 2 of the dozen we ordered and 2 cupcakes were damaged. She took it upon herself to correct the situation and personally delivered 4 more cupcakes, the 2 damaged ones and the 2 missing ones. ( FREE OF CHARGE!!!) I highly recommend Smallcakes Durham and will use them and spread the word about how AMAZING this store is!!!! Thank you Porcelain and Smallcakes Durham for saving my bosses birthday!!!! We will be frequenting your store!!!!

Everything we tried was absolutely delicious— the Salted Carmel, Chocolate, and Birthday Cake were my personal favorites. Great people and great cupcakes, highly recommend.
