This year we will have two weeks of different hours over the holidays!
We'll be working regular hours right up through Christmas! Please place your holiday orders here.
The week between Christmas and New Year's we'll have limited hours for walk-in customers at the cupcake store.
Wednesday Dec 27: 12 pm to 5 pm
Thursday Dec 28: 12 pm to 5 pm
Friday Dec 29: 12 pm to 5 pm
Saturday Dec 30: 11 am to 3 pm (normal Saturday hours)
Then following New Year's, we'll be taking a much needed break and closing the store for the week of Jan 3 to 6. This means we will not be taking ANY custom orders between Dec 30 and January 11. If your order is for Dec 30 or earlier, or January 11 or later, you can place your order online here.
We'll resume regular store hours Wednesday January 10, 2018.
If you have any questions, please call our store during retail hours at 510-301-4757 or email us.

It's never too early to get in your orders for all of your December holiday parties! We will be working and open throughout the month, and through New Year's. Since we have a small shop, placing your orders in advance is always a good idea - and remember we usually get booked up about a week ahead even when it's not the holidays.
We LOVE holiday flavors - and there are so many great ones to choose from. Along with our top selling flavors (Salted Caramel, Meyer Lemon Cream, Red Velvet), some of our holiday favorites are:
Chocolate mint / Peppermint / Candy Cane
Coconut or Chocolate with Pomegranate
Gingerbread (with or without Cranberry)
Old Fashioned Cocktail (Bourbon)
Ginger, Cardamom or Chai Spice
Maple / Maple Bacon
Spiced Pear Brandy
Pumpkin Spice / Pumpkin Chip
Or pick any of your favorite flavors and top them with festive red and green sprinkles or snowflake cut outs.* Our complete list of flavors (almost 90!!!) is here.
A dozen cupcakes starts at $36, and minis start at $1 each! We deliver throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area or you can pick up your order at our Oakland store - sorry, we do not ship cupcakes. We also have gluten free and vegan options for most of our flavors. All of our ordering information is here. Please remember that we require all of our custom orders to be prepaid, though you can always top into the shop during our retail hours and pick up some goodies - we're sure to have holiday designs starting in December.
*Colored frosting or sprinkles are included in the price, but fondant toppers and some holiday designs (like poinsettias) may cost extra.]]>
Ever since opening in March, it's been difficult for customers to find us (aside from our historic location, of course). Well, earlier this month our building received a much needed update!
We worked with Stephen at Berkeley Signs to add a a large hand-made wood version of our logo to two sides of the building, as well as cupcake decals on our door and four of our windows. He also updated our sandwich board signs so they are easier to see from the street.
WE LOVE THE SIGNS! I mean, REALLY love them. Finally we're a real business!
Working with Steve was great - he came by the store for a consultation and we went over all of our ideas. He had great suggestions, and I could tell he had a lot of experience. After the consultation, he sent a written estimate, and I paid a deposit, and a few weeks later, he called to schedule the installation. We loved all the little details - like the bronze paint on the edges of the wood signs.
His fees were reasonable, and he was great to work with, and most of all, everything looks great!]]>
