"We wanted to offer our patrons from coast-to-coast the chance to enjoy our cupcakes, delivered straight to their doorsteps," says Steve Abrams, Owner and CEO, Magnolia Bakery. "We're very excited to offer the 'Cupcake Club' as well – it's the Magnolia Bakery gift that keeps on giving."

The online store operates in the cherished Magnolia Bakery tradition in order to provide customers with the best quality service and product. All cupcakes and baked goods will be made from scratch and baked in small batches throughout the day, using only the finest ingredients. Cupcakes will arrive frozen to guarantee freshness. Before serving, allow them to thaw at room temperature for approximately 3-4 hours. Once thawed, cupcakes should not be refrigerated or refrozen. Please store in an airtight container if you do not plan to enjoy them right away.

Customers in the lower 48 states will receive cupcakes via overnight shipping; merchandise is available for expedited or ground shipping and can be shipped internationally. All orders will be shipped via FedEx and arrive Tuesday-Friday. The cost of shipping is based on the customer's location.
