Countdown to Cupcakes!

Forget counting down to the holidays - we're counting down to each of the weekends in December! The menu has just arrived and we're already making our list and checking it twice to make sure we get all the scrumptious flavours for our Saturday tea and cupcake ritual. Speaking of tea, our fantastic pals at DavidsTea are working their way through the menu to provide us with the perfect tea pairings - check back shortly for an updated version of this menu with tea recommendations!

We will be closed on the last Saturday of the month, December 25, so as a special holiday gift, cupcakes will be available on Friday, December 24! That's right, cupcakes on Christmas Eve! Betcha Santa would appreciate a cupcake instead of cookies this year. For our special December 24 cupcakes, we are offering pre-order only of either half or full dozens in a decorated Noel-themed box. All Noel Box orders will be available for pick up between 1pm and 5pm when we close. See the menu below for the festive flavours!

As always, cupcakes for Saturdays are available at 11am and can be pre-ordered by coming by the store, phoning or emailing to ensure you don't miss out!

I've tried your cupcake and honestly it's the best cupcake I’ve ever tried. But the only problem is that your cupcake isn’t available all weekdays, other cupcake shops sell cupcakes during the week days and ends which makes it convenient to buy cupcake at any day instead of limiting the cupcakes to only one day of the week.

Hi there - thanks so much for your comment and sorry for the delay in reaching you. We're so glad to hear you like the cupcakes and we definitely understand your frustration about their once-a-week status.

The reason for this, which you may not be aware of, is that we do not make the cupcakes ourself. The incredible http://thecupcakelounge.com/ Cupcake Lounge makes our cupcakes and only makes them available to us on Saturdays at this time.

I hope that explains the Saturday-only practice.
