About The Cupcake Delivers

Jessica and her son baking goodiesThe Cupcake Delivers was founded in 2010 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!

The Cupcake Delivers now bakes and delivers cupcakes for all occasions, balloons, delicious cakes, cake pops, gourmet chocolate covered smores, marshmallow pops, and Oreos. We Deliver in Virginia, and Washington DC for client gifts, weddings, corporate and realtor services, catering special events, family reunions, baby showers, bachelorette parties, office parties, and any other event that may have a sweet tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can you ship your cupcakes?
    Our Cupcakes are much larger than regular cupcakes. They have a lot more icing too! This makes them extremely difficult to ship. We’ve been working on it though and are just weeks away from launching shipping!
  • Can you make a special flavor or design for me?
    We’d love to. Contact our artist directly by email artist@thecupcakedelivers.com. Send a picture of what you would like, or ask a question and we’ll take care of the rest! Custom pricing is based on your individual order.
  • Do you have display stands?
    We do have a large display stand that fits 100 of our cupcakes and is available for rent. If you need something else, let us know and we’ll see what we can do to get what you need.
  • Can I pick up my cupcakes?
    Yes, pickup time slots are at a premium though so they are first come first serve. Jump on the Live Chat here on the website or email us if you need a pickup!
