Last week I had the opportunity to try out Cupcakes Express. I was very curious because I had not heard of the company before, but thought it was a great concept. Cupcakes Express services 22 metropolitan areas, with Los Angeles being the closest one to me.
The website allows you to order from 10 different cupcake arrangements. I chose Baker's Choice so I could be surprised. The price for this arrangement, which includes a dozen cupcakes, is $36. Of course prices vary by location.
And then I waited. I was very curious to see which local bakery these cupcakes would come from. That's the interesting part about this delivery service, you don't know who they've contracted with in the area.
My cupcakes were delivered during the two-hour time frame I was given, which was perfect for this busy, sleepy mama. The cupcakes were from Patty's Cakes in Fullerton, CA. I haven't been to Patty's yet so I got to review the cupcakes too! The cupcakes that I received were exactly what I ordered.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the service that Cupcakes Express provided. This is a great alternative to trying to deal with the hassle of shipping cupcakes. Have you tried Cupcakes Expss yet? Have you had cupcakes shipped by mail? Thoughts?
Stay tuned for a review of Patty's Cakes
