TSP Cupcakes:  General Info and Menu:

We have created hundreds of cupcake flavors and it would be impossible to feature all of our flavors all of the time.  While we love featuring the most popular flavors, we equally love to bring you interesting and unique flavors regularly.  In our shop we feature six to eight unique and popular flavors daily.  We also have a menu from which you can order.  See below for information on ordering and some FAQ's.


WE DO NOT ACCEPT ORDERS VIA EMAIL.  We are a small business and we receive hundreds of e-mails every week.  We cannot give you the personal attention your order deserves if your e-mail gets lost in the flood or sent to the spam folder, particularly when you may be operating on a deadline.  We accept orders in the following way:

In the shop when you drop by

Over the phone when you call us at 630-262-3353

Do you have cupcakes in the shop for me to purchase or do I have to place an order?  Every day we feature six or more flavors in the shop available for purchase.  We have no minimum or maximum you have to purchase from these flavors.  We bake a certain amount and when they are gone, they're gone until the next day!  You may mix and match from the daily flavors or call us to place a specialty order.   

How do I know what you have in the shop on a certain day?  We have flavors we feature daily and others that rotate based on the day of week or season.  These are posted in our shop or just give us a call!

 How do I store my cupcakes I bought?  The best way to store your Sugar Path cupcakes is to keep them in their plastic container or transfer them to an airtight container if you've received a box.  While some of our customers refrigerate cupcakes to extend the life, refrigeration can be drying to cake and it hardens our buttercream frosting.  You may leave your cupcakes at room temperature unless they are topped with cream cheese frosting or contain fruit, curd, whipped cream, or pudding.  Bring to room temperature to consume.

How long do they last?  We small batch bake with no preservatives.  Your cupcakes are best on the day they are purchased.  With proper storage we recommend two days.  (We know customers that keep them longer but cupcakes are small and factors like how it is not encased in frosting and exposed to air and elements affect shelf life.  It's cake, use your discretion).

If I call you can I order a dozen cupcakes and pick the ones I want?  We accept pre-orders for cupcakes BUT if you are not ordering from the flavors of the day and want a flavor we are not featuring then you MUST satisfy the minimum order quantities.  (See below order menu).

Mini Cupcakes:

Our Mini Cupcakes are one of the most popular items we sell.  We feature them in our shop daily packaged by the dozen in four flavors.  If you would like to order a mixed variety of minis and choose the flavors from our daily flavor rotation we ask that you order a minimum of 6 each flavor.  If you want to choose flavors from the order menu (and not a flavor we are featuring that day) then you must satisfy the minimum order quantities.  (See below order menu).

Mini Cupcakes can be made in all of our flavors.  However, due to the size of the mini the design of the mini may be different from the design of the standard size cupcake.  Additionally, not all minis are filled even when the standard size version is filled.
