Bespoke Jumbo Cupcakes by Special Cakes Highly Recommended by Whom You Know! We are Pleased to Kick Off Coverage of the Superbly Talented Special Cakes!

In our 17,000 plus posts we have written on many culinary endeavors.
We believe we have never written on cupcakes before because no one in cupcakes has impressed us.  We don't think making cupcakes is difficult-little kids can do it well.
The cupcake craze has been trendy and overworked by untalented brands with little creativity...until now.
This is the first of their three products they proposed, and we gave them no direction.  They went to and saw our logo and made it better by adding rich chocolate and quality ingredients.  They even got the peach logo with the diamond check mark right, and that's actually another tiny cake on top of the cupcake.  This brand is smart, capable, talented and should be blowing every other cupcake maker out of the water.
They probably are!
If you are into cupcakes and want them custom, there's one place to go.
Special Cakes.

This is a fantastic idea for your next corporate event! Special Cakes can deliver cupcakes, custom-designed with your corporate logo! For a fancy event, you can have them constructed… fully iced with your logo and company or team colors. Or, for a team-building event, Special Cakes can deliver them with tailored components for you to enjoy building into gorgeous cupcakes as a group. Besides being beautiful, Special Cakes does a great job of recreating your logo in edible fashion, and they taste AMAZING!

This delicious Jumbo chocolate cupcake was a delight to one's eyes and tongue! The unique "Whom You Know" logo topper (peach with diamond check mark), which was completely edible was a creative accessory to this yummy chocolate cupcake. The color of the edible, peachy icon topper and the edible, diamond checkmark strand atop it was an exceptional idea. This cupcake comes securely double-wrapped with 2 cupcake papers, the inner one is paper, while the outside cupcake paper sparkled the eyes with foil. The color, consistency and flavor of the cupcake and frosting only enhanced this dessert experience!

A party in every bite. Not to get too sentimental about these cupcakes, but these people really know what they're doing. Beginning with the packaging, Special Cakes protects and defends each little cupcake in its own special wrapping. Each one will arrive like the best gift, so beautifully wrapped, that it leaves the best impression even before you've had a single bite. This is the perfect gift, really. And the lightness of the moist cake will melt your last shred of will power.

Special Cakes was founded and is owned and operated by Brittany Alexander and Megan Alexander, sisters. Brittany, a musical theater major, attended Ithaca College, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science from SUNY New Paltz in 2000. Megan graduated from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting in 2004 and became a certified public accountant in 2008. After college, Brittany and Megan both worked in the business world, but always craved a creative pursuit outside of the office. Brittany and Megan were raised in an atmosphere that valued aesthetics, ingenuity, and creativity. The importance of home and family was always prevalent and relationships with each other made every day a special day. One way the Alexanders (as so many do) always enjoy or celebrate life, each other, and the day is by making and sharing a baked treat! - and sharing baked treats with their pups! They call these treats special treats. It eventually became clear to Brittany and Megan that they could focus their efforts on creating an entity that would celebrate the uniqueness and importance of everyone by creating personalized cupcakes; Special Cakes. Brittany and Megan formed the LLC, designed a commercial kitchen, built the website and started the brand. Special Cakes celebrates people. Special Cakes believes that everyone has certain gifts, talents and abilities to share with the world and Brittany and Megan enjoy sharing theirs by making people feel special with cake! Special Cakes operates like a couture fashion design studio. Special Cakes discusses the cupcake design desired, creates a sketch of how it will appear, and then creates the custom cupcake toppers. Everyone at the party gets the decoration and it is unique to each client. The goal is to make the client feel special by bringing their idea to fruition in the prettiest way possible and, of course, to enjoy! Special Cakes is in its first year of business and is headquartered out of the owners’ other business, Country House Bed & Breakfast. Special Cakes began with local cupcake delivery. Since then, Special Cakes has expanded its product lines to include national shipping of personalized jumbo, fairy, and mini cupcakes, cupcake toppers, decoration kits, deconstructed cupcake kits, cookies, and dog treats, and local delivery of personalized cupcakes, pies, homemade soups, cookies, candy, dog treats, and cakes! Life should be celebrated and Special Cakes is thrilled to offer products that might just make life that much sweeter.
