About The Cupcake Delivers

Jessica and her son baking goodiesThe Cupcake Delivers was founded in 2011 by Jessica Baer, after working for 20 years in the natural foods industry with Whole Foods Market. With her family as her inspiration, and the passion to create the BEST cupcakes you have ever eaten, The Cupcake Delivers quickly turned into a full time business. Thanks to the love and devotion of our happy customers, we are proud to expand into Nationwide shipping!
