Please beware of unlicensed online bakeries!

By on Monday, July 7th, 2008

On the heels of our cupcake giveaway for a free cupcake from bangarang bakeshop, I wanted to include an excerpt that Nicole (of bangarang bakeshop) has on her shops homepage:

**PLEASE BEWARE OF UNLICENSED AND UNINSURED ONLINE BAKERIES. If you or your loved ones falls ill from one of their products, you will have no recourse. Please be careful of where you purchase food on the internet. It is against the law to sell baked goods from a unlicensed facility in the US. Our CUPCAKES IN A JAR(TM) have been formulated and extensively tested and researched to stay fresh in the jar. Please be careful when purchasing from unlicensed shops that ship cakes in various containers whom are not certified, this is not safe using unresearched and non-professionally tested cake and frosting recipes. Our recipes have been formulated and researched to withstand a extended shelf life within our jars. Besides being a licensed bakery, I hold a Food Protection Manager Certification, which is mandatory in the US to sell food. This is very important for Bangerang Bake Shop to have to ensure the safest, most sanitary and satisfactory online bakery experience. We care about our customers, and being educated and licensed in the food industry isn’t only the law, it’s imperative to our commitment to our customers.

Here are a few online shops that All Things Cupcake recommends if you are going to be purchasing cupcakes on the internet:

Bangarang Bake Shop
Mrs. Beasleys Cupcakes
Teacake Bakeshop
Babycakes NYC
Crumbs
Chicago Cupcakes

 

If you know of a delicious bakery that ships their cupcakes, please list them in a comment.

Lux-Sugar Cupcakes and my not so good experience.

By on Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

There comes a time, I suppose, where we have to share our experiences.. good or bad. I have been contemplating how to go about this as I’ve never really had a negative experience that involves cupcakes… until today.

I recently saw a post on Cupcakes Take The Cake , about Lux Sugar, and how they ship and have perez hilton cupcakes. Awesome! I personally, like to order online so I can write up awesome reviews on ATC.. and of course, I always forget to mention that I do write for ATC but maybe that’s a good thing.. right?

I placed an order on their website and didn’t receive any sort of response for a few days and then when I did receive a response, it was an apology that their store wouldn’t let them view orders. Understandable. They gave me a coupon for 6 free cupcakes. Thanks.. but I’m not sure if I will use it.

The box came today.. and the cupcakes were hidden, in the midst of packing peanuts.. I pull out the cupcake box and this is what I see:

Needless to say, I was beyond disappointed. It was definitely a cupcake catastrophe and I don’t think I will be ordering from them. ever. again.

Sigh. Was it just my order? Has anyone else had this experience?

Fat Daddy Bake Shop Loves Us!

There is such a place that exists where you can purchase cupcakes online and they ship them out to you. The cupcakes are delicious and come in adorable packaging. I always thought this was too good to be true, so I just HAD to place an order. Here is my experience with Fat Daddy Bake Shop.



All in all, I rate my experience with them a 10! The cupcakes were delicious. I put mine in the microwave for a FEW seconds, no more than 10 and it was very moist, delicious and oohy goohy. Yum! I wish I would have ordered 5 more.Check out Fat Daddy Bake Shop!
