We were opportuned to have a talk with it’s founder on the story behind this candy-coated company.
A Brief Background
I’ve been called Honey since I was little; my family has always called me that, and so it is my ‘identity’. I love to bake and experiment with food and flavors in the kitchen, and so when I decided to start baking cupcakes professionally, it only made sense to name the cupcakery ‘Honey’s Cupcakes’.
The idea of Honey’s Cupcakes was born in the summer of 2007. I had just graduated from the University of Massachusetts, in Boston, and I had a lot of spare time on my hands. So I started baking…everyone I gave my baked goods to suggested I sell them. And then I moved back home and made a few cupcakes for a gathering, and got such high recommendations that I decided to take the final step. I registered the business name in 2010 and launched the site in the summer of 2011.
Inspiration For Creativity
The slogan to the company is “…I dream of cupcakes”. People often don’t believe me, but I literally have ideas of flavors ‘come’ to me in dreams. I know… it does sound a bit crazy, but there it is.
Other than the “Lead Roles”, which feature classic flavors such as The Very Vanilla and The Red Velvet, all other flavors on our menu are unique. We have a signature cupcake that’s called Honey Love. Every menu, we reinvent this flavor that’s made with honey and make different editions of it. The current edition of Honey Love is The Sticky Toffee Edition. It’s our interpretation of the classic British dessert, Sticky Toffee Pudding.
Unique Selling Points
We primarily pride ourselves with the freshness and quality of the ingredients used to create our sweet treats. And when we say create, we do mean that we create them. All of our cupcakes and frostings are made from ‘scratch’ and original recipes in our kitchen. Our cupcakes are made fresh for every order, and are frosted shortly before delivery. We are a luxury brand, and as such we source the freshest and finest natural ingredients on the market, regardless of how far we have to go to find them!
Though subject to change, boxes start at N3000. Prices vary dependent on flavor and combination. To get a better idea of the prices, I suggest looking up the full 20-item MENU available on the website.
We sometimes have pop up shops at events and fairs. To keep up to date, I’d recommend connecting with us on one of our social media accounts, or signing up to the mailing list on our website.
We do not have a discount code program at the moment. What we offer to regular clients and friends of Honey’s Cupcakes is an opportunity to join an exclusive mailing list. This offer is by invitation only, and comes with sweet treats such as complimentary boxes, a chance to be one of our tasters for new menus, etc. We are currently running a referral program, so tell your friends about us and when they buy, you could win a free mini box. To be kept abreast of our changing promotions, I suggest connecting with us on one of our social media accounts.
