Sue was such a pleasure to work with. We wanted cupcakes instead of a traditional cake at our wedding. She gave us amazing suggestions and made our top tier cake exactly what I had pictured. Most importantly, the cupcakes were DELISH. all of our guests raved about them and my cousin who has celiac was so happy we got the flourless chocolate cupcakes. They were the biggest hit.

My parents are wheat free so we had flour-less chocolate cupcakes from Cupcakes Actually for our wedding. We are STILL getting compliments and people asking where they came from! They are SO good - to die for if you are a chocolate fan. They customized them to have chocolate frosting and white chocolate shavings on them (just an example of their flexibility). They were SO easy to work with and very reliable! I wish I could eat that cupcake EVERY SINGLE DAY! Strongly recommend!

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!

LOVE!!! These cupcakes. I bought cupakes and a small round cake for my wedding. We created a cupcake tower. It was so beautiful and delicious. The owner was great to work with and she created exactly what I asked for. My guests loved the cupcakes so much, I just wish I had ordered more. I still stop in occassionally to have one of their yummy treats. Can't wait to eat our fresh personalized cake on our 1st Anniversary, instead of having to freeze your cake, the owner will make you an a jumbo Happy 1st Anniversary cupcake. I can't wait, one month away now.

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!
