Picked up some cupcakes for my boss's birthday. His honest review is that they tasted " heavenly" .

My family tells me the cupcakes are delicious. Sadly, I can’t give you my personal opinion on their vegan cupcakes because they require a 24-hour notice.

They gave me the absolute perfect cake. I gave them a picture and they did exactly what was asked and honestly wasn’t a bad price! Staff was friendly and cake was on time. Really nice place for a first time experience

We ordered an 8-inch wedding cake! The size was okay for 11 people. We cut the slices big enough. I sent a design online and it was very impressive that they made a similar one! It was a chocolate-flavored icing cake with real white flowers! The design and chocolate parts were amazing, but we found the icing part too sweet! The price was affordable for a medium wedding cake! (I'm not a super fan of icing though.) (Between $100 and $150 USD) The communication was nice! They responded to me fast! The cake was very on time as they promised. Thank you for their efforts :)

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

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!!!!

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.

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!

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

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!

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.

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!

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

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.

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

This year I decided to celebrate my cat’s, Luna, 12th birthday and pet stores don’t carry baked goods for cats so I did what a normal person would do and I got a gourmet cupcake. Sign said baked that day, so I was happy about that. The price was lower than I imagined and they had one named birthday, so win right there but they had maybe 6 choices. My cat especially liked the frosting and the cake part was moist. I got a punch card because I plan on coming back and not just on Luna’s birthday. BTW the cupcake made the party a big hit!
