Love the cupcakes.. I went in there on 3-11-12 to order a cake for my sons birthday party in April. Never been there before but every other place I called used fondue icing.. I hate the way it taste.went in and was greeted by sherri she was sooo down to earth. she gave ideas on the cake and also I tried some cupcakes and they were sooo good.. the red velvet the vanilla with buttercream icing and the chocolate with chocolate icing are all good. Cant wait till I get my sons cake.

Maybe you meant "fondant" rather than "fondue"? If so, I know what you mean. I know fondant makes the cake prettier and easier to decorate, but plain old buttercream will always be my favorite. I hope your son's cake turns out great!

She makes the BEST cakes!! I highly recommend her cup cakes if you want something sweet. Her sweets are much better than anything from a grocery store.

The owner was VERY nice when I stopped by today. She was helpful, courteous, and volunteered her opinion in a kind way. The shop was clean and smelled phenomenal. I got 1/2 a dozen cupcakes, which were nicely packaged. I got into my car and couldn't wait to taste the first one. It was too good for words! I am not surprised that they were booked two weeks in advance. I have to complain that they aren't open on Monday, because I would be there. I tried another shop in town and there is no competition. This is going to be a treat to myself on a regular basis!

Thanks to Sherri and her delicious sweets I have gained 15lb...lol. I visit the shop at least 3 times per week and I just can't get enough. I ordered a birthday cake and when I picked it up it was beautifully decorated and it tasted great. I have tried other cupcakes in the area and they don't compare to Flour Girls!

Someone brought one of her birthday Cake's to work. I didn't try a piece until the end of my shift. I was thinking "eh... another birthday cake" I cut a small little piece... I have to say...OMG! That was the BEST cake I ever put in my mouth!!! I wound up eating a whole big ole piece!! I had to tear myself away!!! Now, I'm trying to think of reasons to buy a birthday cake!!!!

I was VERY, VERY, upset......never in a million years would I have guessed that I would be so disappointed in your work Sherri. I was devasted when I picked up my cake. Not only was it the ugliest cake I've ever seen, this time, the tast was terrible. I've been a faithful customer of yours for 13 years and the last 2 cakes have not even come close to the "Sherri" quality of work that I've been accustomed to. Your new shop is booming with new customers and business - PLEAS SLOW DOWN AND PAY ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND YOUR OLD FRIENDS !!!!!!!!! I know you can do better than what I received.

I think the staff wrote the positive comments because everyone that I have talked to said the service was horrible and the cupcakes taste cheap. Personally, I know the owner to be rude and customer service is not one of her priorities.

I attended a bridal shower yesterday at the Battle House and Flourgirls' cupcakes were served. I've never eaten cupcakes as delicious as these. I live in Pensacola and will visit the shop when I'm in town and have recommended them to numerous friends! Keep up the delicious work!

I have told everyone about this place. Sherri& her team went above & beyond when they made me a birthday/anniversary cake for us. The best chocolate cake with Bavarian filling & white buttercreme icing that I have ever had. I love the cupcakes also. So moist, not like alot of places in Mobile that are dried out. I have always had a pleasant experience with the staff. Always helpful & nice. Thanks again for the yummy cake.

The cakes and cupcakes are so delicious! The only problem I have with them is that they charge $1 extra to pay with your debit or credit card! That is insane and it is in direct violation of their VISA/MASTERCARD agreements. Why would VISA/MASTERCARD do business with them if they are discouraging their clients from using their cards! CRAZY. I understand that there are merchant service fees they have to pay, but the correct way to handle that is to offer a discount off the price of a product for paying in cash, not charging more for using the method of payment most widely used. I love their desserts, but this has to change.

I definitely do not think the positive posts are made by staff.The cupcakes are wonderfully sweet! I tried others from a shop this past weekend and they were disappointing!

I work for a company right down the road from Flour Girls and its hard to pass without stopping in. Their strawberry cupcake with cream cheese frosting is out of this world. We have tried each bakery in Mobile, and there is simply no comparison-and thank goodness, because they are right around the corner! Lucky for us.:)

They make the best box cake mix cupcakes and cakes. Love the fillings they do pair well with the cupcakes. So if you like a great box mix, which will give you a good price and consistent results, go for it because this the place for you. But, if you want a great scratch cake that is impeccably decorated go to the Pastry Shop on Dauphin Street and be prepared to pay for quality. They have the BEST petit fors!
