Angel Cakes http://angelcakessf.com Blog updates from Angel Cakes gourmet cupcakes. en Mon, 30 Jan 2017 17:59:00 +0000 April 21 Fundraising Event & Construction Update https://angelcakes510.com/blog/entry/april-21-fundraising-event-construction-update angelcakes_entry_721

It has been such a wild and overwhelming few weeks since the car crash happened!

The community support has been amazing and we are getting through it. Thanks to the hard work of our landlord and the team at Moore Construction, there is no longer a gaping hole in the side of our beloved bakery and we are hoping for a May reopening!  There are still quite a few things to finish up inside, and we are waiting for PG&E to reinstall the gas meter that was plowed down by the car. We will send out an announcement as soon as we can schedule the party! You can see updates of the construction on our Instagram

In the meantime, we are hosting a fundraising event on Sunday evening, April 21! This will be a wine & cupcake happy hour where we will debut a new flavor called Car Crash. The event is $25 or free for donors to our GoFundMe campaign. All the details are here.

We are also still selling cupcake coupons here: https://squareup.com/store/angelcakesSF/item/coupon-gift-card 
Coupons will be mailed to you and will be redeemable at our retail shop when we reopen. 

Thank you to everyone who has reached out so far, your calls, texts, and emails have meant everything. We are getting a bit worn down by the whole ordeal but we are hopeful that we will be back to normal soon.

Help Angel Cakes Rebuild https://angelcakes510.com/blog/entry/help-angel-cakes-rebuild angelcakes_entry_720


Dearest community -
pril
On Sunday February 24 a speeding car crashed into the Angel Cakes building on Fifth Street in Oakland, causing a gas leak and extensive damage to the building. Fortunately, though staff were working at the time, no one was physically injured. I’ve included some photos and a link to a news report below.

We are thankful that no one was hurt, although we are completely devastated and in shock.

We are working with the building owner, our insurance company, and our community on a plan to reopen our retail shop. Though insurance will cover much of our anticipated expenses, they won’t cover everything and we will need your support to reopen. We know that this will impact us for a long time.

Our retail store will be closed for the next several weeks as we repair the building. We will be resuming our custom order business from an alternate location beginning A. All previously booked orders will be honored and we are also accepting new orders. You can place an order for April 4 or later here: http://www.angelcakes510.com/order
For questions and concerns about existing orders, please contact us at orders@angelcakesSF.com or leave a voicemail on the shop line at 510-301-4757

We can’t do this on our own, and here are some ways you can help: 

1. We will need financial help. Please contribute to the Rebuilding Fund here: https://www.gofundme.com/help-angel-cakes-rebuild
We will will host a special thank-you event for donors when the shop reopens. 

2. Please buy a cupcake coupon here: https://squareup.com/store/angelcakesSF/item/coupon-gift-card 
Coupons will be mailed to you and will be redeemable at our retail shop when we reopen. 

3. Sign up for our mailing list so you can get the announcement when our store re-opens: http://eepurl.com/gbGs5

4. Place an advance order for your birthday or event for later this year:  http://www.angelcakes510.com/order

5. We have several builders and contractors in our community but we may need more help. If you have skills or are available to volunteer time or labor, please email me at jen at angelcakesSF.com

6. If you have had our cupcakes before, post a review of our shop on Yelp to keep our listing active: https://www.yelp.com/biz/angel-cakes-cupcakes-oakland

7. Like and share this post on Facebook or other social media to help signal boost this message.


Thank you to everyone who has reached out so far, your calls, texts, and emails have meant everything. I know we will get through this together.

New look for Angel Cakes Cupcake Shop! https://angelcakes510.com/blog/entry/new-look-for-angel-cakes-cupcake-shop angelcakes_entry_716

In October we remodeled our cupcake shop with a new front counter, building by Moore Construction & Remodel! 

We are extremely pleased with the way the project turned out. Our new counter is lower, so it's easier to see all of the cupcakes and delicious treats. It also has more shelving and storage 

Dane Moore and his staff did a great job coming up with the design based on our needs, and then they built the base off-site. The next day, they brought it over to the shop and installed it with the new quartz countertop. They attached the glass top and we painted it the next day. It was so easy! They are going to be our first call for any future construction projects.
