We decided to buck tradition and go with cupcakes instead of wedding cake (we were a small wedding of just under 40 people). Cupcakes actually made this a fun, easy and painless experience after one simple consultation. We were able to sit down with Sue, discuss what our vision was, sample some different flavors, get her advise and pick out some final sizes and designs. She easily met our expectations and our budget!

We worked with Jennie and the team at the Cupcakes Actually location in Leesburg and they were great. Tasting cupcakes was a breeze and we were even encouraged to continue to come by and continue to taste any seasonal/new cupcakes throughout the planning process in case we decided we liked another type better. We chose 4 different types for our wedding of 105 guests and the flourless chocolate was definitely the star of the night! When our personal cupcake stand broke in transit to the venue the night before, all it took was a quick call and the team was able to easily add a stand rental to our order. Everything was set up beautifully and the guests loved all the flavors! Thanks Cupcakes Actually!

Cupcakes Actually was fantastic to work with. We chose 4 different flavors of cupcake (flourless chocolate is to die for) for our 200 guest wedding. The presentation was lovely and the cupcakes tasted amazing. Sue and her team did a great job incorporating our wedding colors into the design and captured the fall spirit we love so much. Easy to work with and great product! We are customers for life now.

Sue was great! She was there when we had our tasting and walked us through picking our flavors, since we were having 4 different cupcake flavors she even recommended Pumpkin (since we were having a fall themed wedding) and it was a hit! When it came to the decorations she didn't try and upsell us on decorations, she told us to keep them simple and how they would normally come so we actually ended up saving money on not added any extra decorations and I loved how each cupcake was different. The cupcakes were amazing. The flavors we picked were gluten free chocolate, vanilla, red velvet and pumpkin. We got so many compliments on how moist they were and considering they had been sitting there for 6+ hours, to me, is a great thing to hear! This is now my new "go to" place for cupcakes now.

We had cupcakes and a grooms cake for our wedding, both made by Cupcakes Actually. Both exceeded our expectations and we were extremely satisfied. We had a multitude of complements on cupcakes and the grooms cake, that not only were they beautiful, but delicious. We started out with a tasting, where we decided on cupcakes, and then discussed the design and colors. We had a follow up meeting to discuss the grooms cake. In both instances everyone was extremely friendly at the shop and all the options were clearly explained to us. Cupcakes Actually ensured that all cupcakes and the cake were delivered seamlessly. We would highly recommend cupcakes actually!

They were wonderful to work with, they listened to my ideas, and made sure to suite my desires for the cake within my desires for the budget. The cupcake cake turned out better then I could have imagined and I had rave reviews on the cupcakes from my guests.

Sue was great to work with, she was very flexible and accomodating. I like the idea of cupcakes because you can have more then one flavor (we had 3 different choices). Their cakes and especially the cupcakes taste soo good and everyone at our wedding loved them, we had none left over! (we bought extra so people can have more then one). Their prices are pretty good, when you compare them to a standard wedding cake where a slice of cake is equivalent to around $7 or so, definitely more afforadable the cupcake route, and she gives a discount when you order in bulk which helped even more! You can even go to their shop and taste all the different flavors when they come out (they change weekly) until you find the flavors you love! I highly recommend them!

The cupcakes were delicious and Sue was fantastic to work with! A lot of family members at the wedding had celiac and were unable to eat gluten, and she provided us with a flour-less chocolate cupcake option that was amazing and a huge hit with everyone! We actually had a wide variety of cupcake flavors so all the guests were able to find something they loved, and it was much more affordable (and cute!) than a traditional wedding cake. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

We got cupcake cake catered for our wedding and it was awesome. The cupcakes tasted really good and the decoration was perfect. The cake also was exactly like we wanted. The only thing I would say to people who want to do this is make sure you have labels for the cupcakes. I didnt ask for it (didn't think about it). There were 5 different types of cupcakes at the wedding. They were all absolutely delicious. Thanks!

I had Cupcakes Actually do my wedding cake/cupcakes and it was amazing. At the end of the night I went back for another cupcake and they were all gone. Not a single crumb was left since they were so delicious. My favorite was the red velvet and the coconut cupcakes. Amazing treats!

The cupcakes and wedding cake top were absolutely gorgeous! We made a change to our order about a week before the wedding and Cupcakes Actually was extremely flexible and responsive to our request.

We had our ceremony and reception at the same venue. Because of this, we were on a very tight time schedule. Cupcakes Actually arrived on time and set up very quickly, so that things could continue to run like clock work.

Their flourless chocolate cupcake is to die for, and it's gluten free for guests with special dietary needs.

We were extremely pleased with the quality of the cupcakes, the value and the taste.

Our cupcakes were delicious and beautiful! The tasting was so much fun and it was hard to choose just a few. We had 4 flavors, and I also decided to do a dozen cupcakes for my groom, decorated with a Steelers theme. They turned out perfect! We had a cutting cake on top with lovebirds on the top, which were beautiful. Everyone was talking about how delicious the cupcakes were. Sue was a dream to work with...so friendly and flexible!

Our cupcakes were delicious and beautiful! We went to tastings at a bunch of local cupcakeries, and chose Cupcakes Actually because 1) they would let us choose from any of their flavors, not just the ones available on that day 2) their prices were reasonable, such that we could afford to do custom fondant decorations, which we couldn't afford at other places we looked at; 3) they offer so many awesome flavor choices; and 4) the cupcakes are deeeee-licious!

We asked for fondant flowers colored four different custom colors, to match a patterned fabric swatch, and they looked perfect. I swapped out a flavor at the last minute, which was not a problem for them. I did most of my interacting with Sue, who was always friendly and easy to deal with. I'm still getting rave reviews from my guests!

Instead of the traditional wedding cake, I decided to go with cupcakes to keep with my casual outdoor wedding. I worked with Danyelle who was really helpful and we came to a decision on 4 types of cupcakes. Unfortunately there was mix-up and when the cupcakes were picked up and arranged, I noticed that one of the flavors was missing and another was substituted. At the wedding, I didn't sweat it because they looked absolutely gorgeous and tasted decadent. Later in the week I called them and told them what a hit the cupcakes were and mentioned the mix-up. To my surprise, they whipped up the 30 cupcakes that were originally missing--no charge--and I picked them up the next day.
To me, this is customer service at it's best. Not only were the cupcakes amazing, the staff were just as sweet! I made sure to tell everyone exactly where the cupcakes came from and I will continue to recommend and place orders at Cupcakes Actually.

I knew I wanted cupcakes instead of a wedding cake so I searched around the area for reasonably priced cupcake vendors. I stumbled upon Cupcakes Actually because they had just recently opened not too far from my reception site. I decided to give it a try and went to a tasting and was hooked on their chocolate dipped cupcakes - heaven! I worked with Danyelle Ballard during the tasting and to place my order. She was easy to work with but not always the most responsive. Admittedly, I did most of my communication via e-mail and Danyelle informed me that everyone in the shop shares one computer so she does not always check e-mail so often. It didn't turn out to be a huge deal because once the order was placed, that was kind of it. They do give you the option to get as creative or decorative as you want and she showed me pictures of some really cool designs she's done in the past. I decided I wanted a simple design so the cupcakes could speak for themselves. They do have a cupcake stand that you can rent, but beware, it is expensive (we rented anyway so I didn't have to deal with finding something on my own).

The only issue I had with Cupcakes Actually is that, unfortunately, Danyelle was sick the few days before my wedding so I was on the phone two days before trying to go over the order with someone new and get it right. It took a few phone calls before everything was hashed out. But in the end, everything showed up as requested and my guests raved about the cupcakes. As far as pricing goes, most of the cupcakes start at $3/cupcake and go up from there depending on the decoration. Even though it was expensive, I figured it was less than a slice of cake would cost. I also used the cupcakes as favors at the end of the night so I believe I got my money's worth.

We choose to do cupcakes for our wedding instead of a traditional cake mainly for the value and we wanted our wedding to be fun and easy. We loved that we were able to provide a variety of choices for the guests. The cupcakes were delicious. I am so glad that Cupcakes Actually was not located close to my house because they offered all of the free cupcakes we wanted to taste at anytime leading up the wedding after we booked. They delivered the cupcakes. The cupcake stand (white, metal, square) was beautiful. However the cupcakes that were actually delivered were not the ones that we ordered on the final order. The embellishments from the final order were correct but when we placed the final order a couple weeks out, we changed one of the flavors to Red Velvet. We did not receive any Red Velvet but the preliminary choices that we made during the initial tasting. We are pretty lucky because this is pretty much the worst thing that happened at the wedding and it was not even a huge deal. But it did create a bit of confusion because we had told several guests that Red Velvet was supposed to be there and they came up to us after the cake cutting asking where the Red Velvet. Also, my husband and I did not notice the mix up until during the cake cutting so we were confused in front of the guests and had to call over the DJ to explain the change in flavors so he could announce what choices there actually were. The value for the cupcakes and the choices available are great. Though I am slightly disappointed, the cupcakes were a huge hit at the wedding and all of the guests loved them.
