Please note that the above 3 gift lines are only available by pre-order. We will have a different variety of our truffles and Easter cupcakes in-store on Easter Saturday, but over-the-counter stock will be strictly limited, so we strongly suggest preordering yours (or coming into the store early in the day before we sell out!).

To place an order, please phone or drop into the cupcakery (open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays) - our contact details can be found at the very top of this website. A 50% deposit is required to place your order (credit card over-the-phone, or cash/EFTPOS instore), if we do not receive this deposit we assume you no longer want your order.

We also have in stock for Easter the gorgeous Bunny Mix M&Ms (pictured below).  These M&Ms come in pretty pastel shades with Easter prints, and are not available in Australian stores! (imported from the US).
