Cupcake Price Increase

new cupcake flavour, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

Sweet Temptations Cupcakery is a small, local business and it takes more than just sugar and spice to keep the Cupcakery operating seven days a week. We run on the hard work, loyalty, and dedication of our small team. As a certified B Corporation, we strive towards excellence in our corporate governance structure, community leadership, environment, and high employment standards. We have, for some time, been working towards our goal of becoming a Living Wage Employer Champion in Guelph. With recent changes to employment legislation in Ontario, we will be increasing our staff’s hourly wages, both full and part time employees.  

For only the second time in eight years, we are increasing the price of our cupcakes. Understandably, this may be frustrating for some of you, but it is a necessity in order for our business to continue. We truly hope you’ll continue to support our staff team through your purchases. Each day you choose to treat yourself to a little delight from our shop, you’re helping our hard working staff reach their goals.

We have decided to maintain our pricing model which offers all flavours of cupcakes at one price. We will continue to charge the same price for both regular and our special dietary cupcakes – gluten free and vegan. We are happy to bake cupcakes that accommodate for these sensitivities and allergens and will not charge a premium. We believe all cupcake fans deserve a delicious treat.

Our new pricing will come into effect Friday, December 15, 2017. The new prices are:

One – $3.29 + tax

Four – $12.00 + tax

Six – $18.00 

Dozen – $29.00

Moving forward, cupcakes will be available for purchase in the following quantities only:

One, Two, Three, Four, Six, Seven, Eight, Dozen

We will not be selling five, nine or ten cupcakes – as the pricing model does not reflect value at these quantities. As always we are happy to box your cupcakes however you like.

As a token of our gratitude, and to celebrate the 4th anniversary of our storefront opening, we will be doing something completely new for 2018. 

Free cupcakes. 

Yes, you read that correctly. It isn’t a typo. To extend a huge thank you for your continued support over the years, we will be giving every person that visits us on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 a free cupcake of their choice. On this date in 2014 we opened our doors for the first time. Free cupcakes will be limited to one per person, only valid while supplies last (and we’ll be baking up a storm!) at the storefront. We truly hope you’ll come by, bring a friend, and visit us. We will of course have cupcakes available for purchase too, if you want to take some home for family or friends. 

January the 10th will be our 4th birthday party at Sweet Temptations Cupcakery and everyone is invited so plan your visit and bring a friend or two, dessert is on us!
