Cupcake Carnival: SAS Cupcakes

Have you entered the $50 CSN Stores Gift Card Giveaway yet???? If not, hurry it on up! It's almost over!!! Click here.

If I told you big, beautiful, delicious cupcakes could be shipped to your front step and still look like they just came out of the bakery, what would you think? "In your dreams," right?

But, it seems, dreams do come true at the Cupcake Carnival! Take a look at this picture...

These cuties are from SAS Cupcakes, a cupcake shop with two store locations - Newark, Delaware and Charlotte, North Carolina - and an online store -

I ordered the Best Sellers Cupcake Collection which has most of the traditional favorites like chocolate/chocolate, chocolate/vanilla, vanilla/chocolate. It also has fun flavors like triple chocolate, red velvet with cream cheese frosting, chocolate with Oreo frosting, vanilla and chocolate topped with raspberry frosting, s'mores chocolate cupcake with marshmallow center and graham cracker buttercream.

All the flavors were great. They're very dense cupcakes with fluffy frosting. They are decorated beautifully, with no detail spared. The flags tell you what flavor you've got so there's no guessing.

But how do the cupcakes stay in place during the shipping? Can you see those little pink straws with the black and pink flags in the center of each cupcake? They support a very tight lid which sits on top of the cupcakes and holds everything in place. Ingenious, really.

It is expensive to have these shipped. $49.95 for the cupcakes, plus around $30 for shipping. (Ouch! I know!) But it was totally worth it for the one-time splurge. They arrived in perfect condition, were packed with ice to keep them cool (most needed in this Alabama heat), and most importantly, they were delicious. I had them shipped to my office and shared them with my co-workers.

Have you guys ever found another place that delivers cupcakes?? I'd love to hear about them!
