Last Day for Thanksgiving Pre-orders!

Hi Everyone!

Hope you're having a great time preparing for Thanksgiving!  Just a quick heads up: today is the last day to place pre-orders for Thanksgiving.  We are open Wednesday November 21st from 10AM to 6PM. On Wednesday, we will have some cupcakes in the case just in case anyone forgets to pre-order or needs additional cupcakes.  Those cupcakes are subject to sell out and will consist mainly of the Thanksgiving top sellers.  So far, the top sellers are: Red Velvet, Pumpkin Spice, Caramel Apple, and Carrot.  In that order.  If you're not sure what to take to your Thanksgiving gathering, we suggest a little of each and you should be good to go! 

What's your Thanksgiving Eve routine?  At 6.01PM, I’m off to work on the trays of macaroni and cheese that I volunteered to take to the King’s Table on Thanksgiving Day. Keeping in mind that I've NEVER made such huge amounts of mac and cheese before, that should be interesting!

Thanksgiving Hours:

Open Wednesday 11/21 10AM - 6PM
Closed Thursday 11/22 and Friday 11/23
Open Saturday 11/24 10AM - 2PM

Happy Thanksgiving from the Lenox Cupcakes Team!

Here we go again...fraudulent cupcake orders

It's been a while since we've gotten one of these emails and all of a sudden, we've gotten two of them, two days in a row.  I thought I'd post them, just like Kari of Retro Bakery, to warn others about scams like these.  In the past, I wasted time responding to these requests, but can now spot these a mile away.

Here's an email we received on Friday:


My name is Jennifer Williams am hearing impaired i cant use phone,You can only email or text me verify any information, that is why i chose to email you,I want to make order for 30 Dozen individual Cup Cakes Chocolate Flavor and strawberry for my Dad's B-Party and This is a pick up order so it will be pick up by 4:pm by my private courier services on 14Th of December so can you handle that for me and let me have the total cost plus tax so i can make the prepay payment with my credit card,and let me know the TYPE OF CREDIT CARD YOU ACCEPT OVER THE EMAIL OR

My Text Only number: 256 346 5498

Kind Regard
Jennifer Williams

A combination of some or all of these indicators set off an internal alarm that an order could be fraudulent:

  1. Large order
  2. To be picked up by courier service
  3. Payment by credit card over text or email
  4. Unable to communicate by phone
  5. Grammatical errors
