My husband and I celebrated our wedding in downtown Durham this past August. While dessert was included in our catering package from The Pit, we decided to supplement it with mini cupcakes and a small cutting cake from Smallcakes. The Smallcakes Durham team was lovely to work with. They were responsive and communicative and designed a beautiful custom cutting cake based off of our inspiration photos. Our guests loved the cupcakes and the gluten-free folks were thrilled to have a dessert option that they could enjoy. Not only were the cupcakes delicious, but they were affordable as well. We are certainly loyal Smallcakes customers now!

I love Smallcakes. I have been going here for years and I always enjoy what I get. They have different flavors but my favorite is red velvet! They have also begun selling other treats like whoopie pies and slices of cake. Yummy. the cake is moist, flavorful, icing is delicious and staff are kind and helpful in providing some guidance.

I special ordered a cake from this location for my birthday. I had seen a picture of a black rainbow cake on the internet. I sent them pictures and explained what I wanted along with some additions to the original picture. I must say I am beyond satisfied. They were honest with limitations but still work with me to get what I wanted. The end result was amazing and beyond my expectations. The pricing was reasonable and it was a pleasure working with Small Cakes Durham. Thank yall so much for helping make my birthday special. The cake was everything I wanted and more. It was beautiful and delicious.

I happened upon this shop one day and saw they had gluten free cupcakes so I decided to try one because I'm always looking for a good gf bakery. The cupcake was so good, fluffy and moist! This feels like my new go to for any gf cakes I will need

I ordered a six pack of the vegan version of the hot fudge sundae cupcake. They were so good! The cake was moist and the frosting was just the right amount of sweetness.
I'm personally not vegan so I can't compare them to vegan cupcakes elsewhere, but if I hadn't been the one who bought them I would have just assumed they were one of their non vegan offerings.
The cupcakes were large and could definitely be split between two adults. If ordering for young kids I'd recommend ordering mini cupcakes.
The online/phone ordering process was easy. I will definitely order more in the future.

Cupcakes are delicious!!! Definitely got to this location. Cary's Smallcakes is good. Durham is better! You will not regret it.

I've purchased from here 3 times and I've yet to be disappointed! Two times were on DoorDash, and this most recent time was in person. They offer fresh/ready to serve cupcakes in many flavors, but not so many that it's overwhelming to choose. I also purchased some cake pops. The decor is really speaking appealing too!
