The Cupcake Mobile is trolling Columbia's streets!
Cupcake deliveries are a great way to celebrate events at the office with your staff or coworkers, delight guests at parties and showers, or surprise your clients with a gift that's sure to please.
How do I order a cupcake delivery?
We'd be glad to bring over a piece of happiness! Place your order at least 24 hours ahead by calling 803.212.4949. (IMPORTANT: to ensure your order is delivered on time, please call us rather than send an email.)
Delivery will be on a first-come, first-served basis, as we can deliver only a certain number of orders each day... so please get your order to us as far in advance as possible!
Where does Cupcake DownSouth deliver? How much does a delivery cost?
In Columbia, we currently deliver orders within 15 miles of our downtown bakery for a $5 base fee plus $1 per mile both ways. We deliver orders between 15 and 25 miles of our downtown bakery for a $15 flat fee plus $1 per mile both ways.
Not sure if you're within 15 miles? Click here for a map of Columbia, click the "Get Directions" button, type in your address, and hit enter. It will show you the number of miles. (If you're outside this radius, please call us for a custom delivery quote.)
Please note that we may need to charge more for more challenging deliveries. For instance, the USC main campus and Fort Jackson are two of the most difficult places for deliveries in Columbia; for USC we charge a flat rate of $15 and for Fort Jackson we charge a flat rate of $23. If parking (even temporarily for deliveries) is difficult in your location or you have a special request, please call us for a custom delivery quote.
Is there a minimum order?
Our minimum delivery order is $30 for your cupcakes plus the delivery fee.
When will my delivery arrive?
Your cupcakes will arrive between 11 and 4 on the chosen day unless you've made arrangements with us for a specific delivery time. (We'll plan our route each day according to the locations of delivery orders that day.) We currently deliver Monday through Saturday, excluding major holidays when our bakery is closed.
Do you deliver wedding cupcakes?
Does someone need to be present to receive the delivery?
Good question! We always call the person receiving the cupcakes to make sure she or he will be there to receive the sweet surprise. We don't like to leave the cupcakes to sit outside, since in Columbia's climate they can easily melt in the sun (or droop in the rain) or tempt animals, neighbors, passersby...
If there's a safe place to leave the cupcakes and the weather permits, like an apartment complex main office or a front porch on a cool day, we're happy to do so. Otherwise, if your recipient won't be able to be there to receive the delivery, we'll keep them at our bakery for you or your recipient to pick up, and we'll refund your delivery charge. (If we do attempt to deliver the cupcakes and are unable to do because the recipient is not there and other arrangements have not been made with us, we do charge our delivery fee.)
