Our Story

Who are we?

heather_headshot Founded in 2010 by Heather McDonnell, Cupcrazed Cakery is not your typical bakery!  Girly? Sure. Bawdy? Absolutely. Delicious? Without fail. Innovative and inventive? Always.

Cupcakes, cookies, cakepops and other delicious treats at the bakery, you’ll only getmade-fresh, from-scratch amazingness. No box mixes or synthetic additives. Nothing but nonstop creativity, inspired by pop culture, candy and adult beverages (no kidding).

That dedication to quality and creativity has garnered attention for Cupcrazed, which won an episode of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars (and started a small grease fire while doing it). Cupcrazed has been featured in Better Homes & Gardens, The Charlotte Observer and Creative Loafing Charlotte, among others.


Every month since Cupcrazed Cakery opened, we have chosen a charity or organization within the community to help with cash or cupcakes.    It’s been a very important initiative we have felt strongly about and we are happy and humbled to give back each month.  If you would like to be considered for our monthly charitable ventures, email us from our Contact Us page.
