    while it’s nice to get a cupcake store in downtown disney, these cupcakes cost $1.50 more than a sprinkles cupcake, $1 more than a crumbs cupcake, and aren’t as good. i’d put it on the same level as a cupcake from ralphs.

    I am so amazed at this cupcake phenomenon. I would like to see one at WDW, though, even if its an Orlando-based business.

    While their cupcakes are a little pricey, they are GOOD! I personally love love love the vanilla bean. I would post a picture, but alas I never remember until I’ve eaten all of it!

    i believe the cupcakes were like $4.75–i think the cupcakes at marceline’s confectionery are just as good, and cheaper.
    although, sprinkles newport beach isn’t that far away–20 min drive but it’s right by the beach!

    Well, I guess I just learned that there is a Disneyland Downtown Disney. I only ever thought that there was a Walt Disney World Downtown Disney and that was THE Downtown Disney.

    It seems as though recently cupcake business have been having a really great amount of customers to keep them open. These don’t look like anything spectacular though.

    The only thing worth my while would be if a Starring Rolls Cafe opened outside of Disney World Hollywood Studios. Other than that– don’t bother me with the cupcake nonsense. ;)
