These cupcakes are certainly awe-inspiring. The size makes you wonder how long they actually cook for in the oven—a minute? The fact that they are so small means that they are very evenly cooked and yet still pretty moist. If you bring them as a gift to someone, they are sure to please, especially for little kids. And truly, the flavors and decoration (the tie-dye cupcake is so cool!) are good. But the price is a bit high. $1 for one cupcake morsel? I certainly wouldn't buy these unless for a special occasion, but they are definitely something that I would recommend trying once.


If you want a button size cupcake at an extraordinarily high price, this is the place to go. Honestly, if you were to fill the top of a restaurant style salt shaker with batter, even with the holes, you would have more cupcake than this. It is almost impressive how small they were able to make them. It should have been 3 for $1, if not cheaper. They were good, but you barely got a taste before it was gone.
