ANNOUNCING Our New and Improved benefit program called “Benefit Months”!

Your purchases any day, all the time, without exception will help us contribute to a lucky local non profit.

We will donate a portion of all sales to a new non profit organization each month. We have found that this gives us an opportunity to do more for each organization we work with and we can get creative with ways to work together throughout the month! It’s truly a WIN-WIN and very FUN! Often the Benefit Month coincides with the organization’s annual gala or a big fundraiser so we can get the word out even more.

Got questions? We’ve got answers! Please read the frequently asked questions below and if you need more information, shoot us an email.

Who can apply to be a beneficiary?

Beneficiaries must be a 501(c)3 non profit organization. We select the beneficiaries for each year by the end of November the previous year by a panel of volunteer judges. Applications are due November 20th each year. We give preference to local non profits but local affiliates of national and international organizations will certainly be considered.

How can we apply to be a beneficiary?

To apply, send an email from your nonprofit .org email address to say that you’d like a Benefit Month Application. We’ll email it right out to you!

Can I nominate a non profit that I volunteer with?

Technically, no. You can encourage a non profit to apply, though! We need the request to come directly from an employee of the non profit.

How much might the donation be?

That’s all up to you! We have given many non profits over $500 for their monthly donation. The success of the benefit month truly lies in the hands of the non profit organization and how well they publicize it, market it, have fun with it, spread the word, and work it. We also include extra perks like free use of our party space and more…

How will our Benefit Month be promoted?

We promote all beneficiaries equally throughout each month on facebook and twitter as well as in the bakery. The non profit organization can have a spot on our counter for literature and we post the non profit’s name on our chalkboard right at the cash register so all our customers can see who they are helping this month!

We’ll work with you to discover many ways we can creatively help you reach out to your fans.

How can I get more information?

Just send an email to and we’ll get right back to ya’.

Thanks for your interest in our Benefit Month Program. We are so grateful to be able to support the community that supports us! That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? We think so….

On the heels of a wildly successful benefit month for PHAME ACADEMY in June, we announce our beneficiary for July…. Human Rights Campaign also know as HRC. Specifically, the finds will go to support a locally produced annual event called the HRC Women’s 3 x 3 Basketball Tournament.

The event takes place on Saturday, July 28th at Irving Park at NE 7th and Fremont. The teams of three have the opportunity to compete in three different competitive groups. It’s LOADS of fun and all for a fantastic organization, HRC.

What is HRC? “According to their website, “HRC seeks to improve the lives of LGBT Americans by advocating for equal rights and benefits in the workplace, ensuring families are treated equally under the law and increasing public support among all Americans.”

Sounds good to us!

Check out this video invitation, explaining more about the event.

If you play, get a team together and register! If you don’t, please support HRC by considering attending the event or making a donation.

What does “Benefit Month” mean? Cupcake Jones believes in supporting the community that supports us. To that end, we have developed a “Benefit Month” program by which we donate a percentage of ALL SALES EVERY DAY of the year! Each month the funds raised are donated to a different non profit beneficiary. Just one more way for us to say “THANK YOU” for your support but more importantly, for all the hard work that these organizations do all year long!

We have selected our beneficiary partners for the remainder of 2012. To be considered for 2013, please email for an application.

For more information about this month’s beneficiary, contact

Remember, all purchases (even weddings, events, deliveries, phone in orders, and future orders) qualify for the donation (as long as they are paid for in July).

Hope to see or hear from you in July and thank you for your support of HRC!

Yup…we have vegan cupcakes!

Our vegan friends love cupcakes too. So we bake vegan cupcakes fresh all day everyday.

We spent months perfecting these recipes to make certain that they taste just as sweet and delicious as all of our other flavors. We use the highest quality ingredients possible and all ingredients are certified vegan. Even the flour and sugar!

To make them taste delicious and still ensure that the cupcakes are vegan we make a few substitutions. Some examples include:

  • Coconut Milk
  • Soy Cream Cheese
  • Earth Balance Butter Substitute
  • Coconut Yogurt
  • Vegan Sugar & Flour

Our vegan cupcakes come in 3 flavors! Chocolate, Vanilla, and of course, RED VELVET;  yummy cupcakes that you can feel good about eating!

You can tell our vegan cupcakes from our regular ones by the cute little vegan chocolate cutouts on top in three shapes, stars, hearts and circles. They’re dusted with shimmery edible lustre dust, too! Pretty…..!

Our bakers are all smiles when they make these dreamy cupcakes!
