Can I order online?
Yes! We have an order request form here.

Do I need to place my order in advance?
We are happy to serve walk-in customers! Only custom orders and large orders (48 or more) need to be placed ahead of time. For custom flavors (including vegan and gluten-free), we request a minimum of 4 dozen minis or 2 dozen regular-size cupcakes and a 48-hour lead time.

Do I need to pre-pay for orders placed in advance?
For pickup and delivery orders, we kindly request payment in advance. Our delivery agents do not accept cash on delivery.

Do you offer wedding consultations?
We do! Call our Minneapolis shop at 612.208.0672 or email weddings@sweetsbakeshop.com to find out more.

How do I care for my cupcakes?
We recommend that you store your cupcakes at room temperature. If you will be eating the cupcakes more than 24 hours after purchasing them, you can refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze them and they are good for up to 10 days after they are purchased. To thaw them, leave them at room temperature for 2–3 hours before they are to be served.

How do I care for my French macarons?
We recommend that you store your French macarons airtight. If you will be eating the macarons more than 12 hours after purchasing them, you can refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 4 days after they are purchased. To thaw, leave them at room temperature for 1-2 hours before they are to be served.

Do you have anything gluten-free or vegan?
We do! Our French macarons are always gluten-free and we offer gluten-free and vegan cupcakes by special order. We just need 48-hours lead time and a minimum order of 4 dozen minis or 2 dozen regular size cupcakes. Please note that our kitchen is not a gluten-free or dairy-free kitchen, so if you are very sensitive, we recommend you err on the side of caution.

If I have a nut allergy, should I eat at Sweets Bakeshop?
Sweets Bakeshop is not a nut-free kitchen. Several of our cupcakes and French macarons use peanuts and other nut products. We recommend that customers with severe nut allergies err on the side of caution.

Are charitable donations available from Sweets Bakeshop?
We support a variety of causes and frequently donate cupcakes to charitable organizations. For all inquiries related to charitable donations, please e-mail Arielle at arielle@sweetsbakeshop.com.

Do you offer gift certificates?
We do! Gift certificates are available for all of the cupcake and macaron packages we offer, see the list here.

Do you ship?
We now ship our French macarons! Call us to inquire about shipping prices. We do not currently offer shipping for cupcakes.
