    I ordered 1.5 dozen jumbo cupcakes for my son's 13-year-old birthday party this weekend 2/25/17...six chocolate, six vanilla, and six red velvet. Although all the cupcakes were beautiful, the chocolate and red velvet were very dry. After returning from a 3-hour paintball party, each hungry teen only ate 3-4 bites of their choc or velvet cupcake, didn't like them, and threw them all away. So expensive to just be thrown in the trash. My husband also tried a red velvet and found it to be very dry. The vanilla were great, however! I talked to Nika today about a partial refund or maybe a credit on a future order but she would not agree. She proceeded to tell me she baked them fresh and the ones she had in the store were very moist. Further made an excuse that the cupcakes were probably too big for a TEEN to eat so they couldn't finish them anyway. I don't know what happened to the very dry dozen she made me, but the customer service there is rude and uncompromising. We will not go back, nor recommend her bakery to others. What a shame.

    Hello, my name is Christina. I live in northern VA, but I am familiar with your work as I had a cake made for a friend's baby shower a few years ago. I am interested in ordering 4 dozen cake pops in addition to a custom cake for a basketball themed birthday party. Is there any way that I can communicate with you via phone/email in order to initiate the process (i.e. secure order, make down payment, etc)? I will not be able to come into town until the beginning of Nov. I would need the cake/cake pops on Nov 26, 2016. If this is a possibility, please email and/or call me (christina.philli@yahoo.com; 540-429-0502).

    I stopped by on Saturday, May 28th with my daughter, we brought half dozen cupcakes & also I got the "turtle brownie" the brownie was very dry, sort of hard like it was old, I sat down to eat the almond cupcake which was hard, very dry! I am very disappointed and will not patronize this business again!

    Good afternoon. Is there anyway I can send you an email with a picture of a wedding cake for a quick price quote? I know I would have to come in for a consultation. My email is cbradberry05@yahoo.com. Thanks!

    Okkkkkk, you were referred to me at Bay Days and my Soror told me what to get! Before I got to the end of the street my cupcake was gone. I'm very selected about my sweet and I now add you to the list. I got another lemon before I went home. I lost the card the guy gave me and I was upset but I got you now.... Oh and by the way, it was so good I ate the lemon on top as well:)

    Real talk...these cupcakes is the truth! I can tell that these 'Couture Cakes' are being baked by a professional who enjoys creating these little works of delectable art. The first C.C. cupcake I ever got was from the blue van they parked outside of my job (Lowe’s # 1186 in Hampton) about three or four months ago; I ordered the chocolate cream cheese flavor…hoooooottt damn it was good! I’d figured that they be back by our way the next day, right? Wrong! I didn’t see that lovely van again until today – as soon as I saw it, I said to myself, ‘Bet.’ I already knew I was getting another one just from what I remembered having all those months ago. This time I got the peanut butter fudge c. cake with the Reese’s peanut butter cup on top of the frosting…wooooowww. I’m glad that I remembered the name this time, because I just found out that this bakery’s right down the street from where I live. I’m about to bring my wife and our three kids down there so they can sample what I’ve gotten a chance to taste twice – delicious masterpieces. Keep up the good work!

    Love, love, your cupcakes. First time was at an event Downtown Hampton. Bought two cupcakes and wanted more. Saw your stand again at another event at Buckroe Beach and again had the red velvet. So, delicious and professional staff. Will be visiting your shop soon.

    Such a surpise treat the day we happened to pull over in our car after a day of sightseeing. We just parked and walked along and found a bakery! Being from Lancaster, PA, where there aren’t too many around, I had to stop in!! The cupcakes were so tasty (we bought two) and the cannoli was a surprisingly delicious! I am from NY and am a little critical of them, but this was great!

    This is the real deal!! Have you ever thought of “Cupcake Wars?”

    I wish you all the best and hope your popularity continues to grow!

  • Michelle Martin

    I am so touched to see what you have done with your fundraising. The act was done from the kindness of your hearts and you and your business will be blessed. I will be visiting your bakery this weekend!! Your pastries look awesome and I cant wait to spread the word about your shop. You could be one of the best kept secrets in this area.

  • B J Wade

    I have been looking for a Cupcake place on the Peninsula and saw your website. I came by the shop on my lunch and got the lemon cupcake & overload cupcake…absolutely heavenly!! This will not be my last time. Many blessings to you and your business. Definitely need to go on Cupcake Wars!!

  • B J Wade

    I have been in search of a business serving cupcakes on the Peninsula and heard about Couture Cakes. I stopped by during my lunch and it was the best decision I made. Absolutely wonderfully delicious and will definitely be there on the regular. Thanks for your service to the Peninsula. And yes, you should think about “Cupcake Wars”…

  • Eusheka Flood

    For my wedding 10-10-10 Nika did the desert bar! There was an array of lemon bars, brownies, cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries, etc. The desert bar was a really big hit with our guests and they loved everything. I have had a many friends that attened the wedding order cakes and cupcakes for their special events as well. The display and goodies were a rave. Even the company that was doing the set up for the wedding followed the “cupcake man” back to the shop and ordered a few dozen of cupcakes! This goes to show you and your company are well on your way to success.
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything & wishing you much success on your business.

    I’ve lived here for almost twelve years and could not believe there was not one good bakery in my area. Well that changed when I found Couture Cakes. They are the best. Love those cupcakes. Former NYer.

    Just wanting to thank George for all the help this past week. I am from Michigan, found your website while searching online. My daughter lives in Hampton with her husband, he is stationed there. Anyways, after talking with George several times this past week, we were able to get this small order of cupcakes together for my daughters birthday. I miss not being with her for her special day, and with the help of Couture Cakes, they helped me make it a special day for her even being so far away. I will spread the word about your store. Too bad, you don’t ship, cuz my husband and I would be interested for sure. My daughter can’t stop talking about how wonderful her cupcakes are and how awesome they taste!
    Thank you again for all the help and making a special day from afar even more special.

  • Danielle Jones-Browning

    I just wanted to say thank you so much, my mother Angela Works has been talking non stop about your bakery and to hear how pleased she is with her 24kt Carrot Cake she bought for herself for her birthday makes me smile. I told her that I seen your work back in January at Chuck E Cheese with the standup Spongebob when I threw a triple party for my kids since I was preparing to deploy here to Afghanistan. You do great work and look forward to having her place my order for Feb when I have my Welcome Home party. Thanks again for brightening her day.

    Just had to take a moment to say how much my family has enjoyed these cupcakes … what a wonderful deal from living social. We had just discovered you a couple weeks before and this gave us an chance to try so many flavors. Now, we always pick a variety and have yet to be disappointed in any. They are so delicious fresh, with a glass of milk. I thought my favorites would be almond joy & red velvet and while I love them, the key lime is best, best, best!! So very delicious!

  • Tiffany Harris

    Absolutely fabulous! I have tried a few cupcake places in the Hampton Roads area- this is by far my fav!!!

    thanks Yasa

  • Samantha

    I could exhaust every superlative in the English lexicon and it still wouldn’t even come close to describing how ridiculous your cupcakes are. The maple bacon practically made me weep, the strawberry shortcake melted in my mouth, the orange dreamsicle was SICK, and I will probably be thinking about how to replicate the peanut butter fudge for weeks to come. And just when I think it can’t possibly get any better than the Elvis, I look at your flavor list and see you make a tiramisu cupcake. What?!?! Unreal. If you guys ever need a mascot/hype person (taste-tester?!), I will travel far and wide extolling the virtues of your cakes until there’s no one left in the continental USA who hasn’t heard of Couture Cakes!!! THANK YOU!!!!

  • Diane Hooks

    Thank you for the wonderful purple and gold cupcakes that you did for my sister and I for our Mother’s Surprise Birthday Party. You came through for us at the last minute. The cupcakes were awesome. I hope that you can start delivering UPS because I would order more and have them Shipped here to me in North Carolina. Blessing to you and your whole entire Staff. Very professional.

  • A’Kishia Coles

    Moved to Newport News 2 years ago and didn’t find this place to be accessible for everything I am use to getting in NY/NJ UNTIL I found Couture Cakes! Although I got chewed out for spending so much on my Babies 1st Birthday Cake; it was WELL WORTH EVERY cent, smile & MOMENT! not to mention the look on everyone’s face that saw her Two Tiered Minnie Mouse. EXCELLENT JOB & I will return. Be prepared cause I am going to keep you BUSY!

  • Kenny Thrasher

    Nika, my coworker bought me the key lime cupcake and it was by far the greatest cupcake of my life. I needed a cigarette afterward… and I don’t smoke. I am so proud of your accomplishments and will be a customer from now on. Thx.

  • Monica Chatman

    My bf ordered me the Topsy Zebra Cake for my birthday,that cake was the bomb.com and everybody went crazy about it!We will order more in the future!

  • PC Bennett

    All the cupcakes and pastries we have tried has been deliciously yummy!!!

    How about adding a Hazelnut flavored deliciousness to your yummy list? I will be in clouds nine then…

  • Amanda

    Hi! My name is Amanda. I’m planning my sweet sixteen and was wonder if anyone has bought a cake from here, what is was like, how much it was, and how it was. Thank You!

  • Josette Brown

    Nika,

    My daughter brought me your cupcakes for my birthday. I loved the simple but efficient box and the label was impressive. I was sold even before I ate even on bite. The real treat was to come later when I ate the cupcakes. They both were simply heavenly. I will definitely stop by your store to buy some. I am already planning a special occasion to by a dozen or so cupcakes. Your cupcakes were a lovely addition to my birthday. Thanks for the calories. Now I have go to the gym.

  • Maria

    I had my daughter’s first birthday cake made here. To say they did a great job is to say nothing! The cake was AWESOME!! It was “Hugs and stitches” cake. They made it just as I wanted and on time.
    Come and try their pastry too!!

  • Ebony

    These are the best cupcakes ever!!!

  • Debra B.

    I had the absolute pleasure of eating 1 of Your cup cakes at a B’Day party last week and I thought my taste buds died and went to Heaven!! I have never tasted better and that’s saying a lot. We will be doing business with Your business in the future. Thank You and pls keep up the good baking!!

  • Sandy M.

    Absolutely the BEST cupcakes anywhere, – even better than the place in northern Virginia where people stand in line for 2 hours! And the baked goodies (cookies, etc.), – they are to die for! Can you say, “Sweet Genius???”

  • Jeff Bryan

    Hello. Do you have vegan cupcakes, cupcakes with no animal ingredients? Thanks in advance for your response.
