Frequently Asked Questions

Stuff you should know about Oh My Cupcakes!

We’ve compiled a list of our most asked questions. If you need additional information, please fill out this form or contact us directly at (605) 310-6742 and we’ll be happy to answer them for you!

Do I need to order ahead or can come in and buy whenever I want?

Our cases are fully stocked each morning with freshly-baked cupcakes. We offer about 14-18 flavors each day. If you require more than three dozen, we ask that you call ahead (24 hours, preferred) and give us a heads up that you’ll be in. That helps ensure that everyone gets the cupcakes they’re after, and that we’re not sold out early.

It’s my birthday! What can I get?

Hey, happy birthday! Get your party pants on and let us celebrate with you! Stop in for a free cupcake on your birthday with your ID. And of course, you can always come in and buy your birthday cupcakes here and we’ll be happy to set you up with the greatest birthday treats ever!

How big is the standard size cupcake in comparison to the mini size?

One standard size cupcake is equivalent to approximately 2-3 mini cupcakes. The size chart below can be found within the product details page of each cupcake available in both standard and mini sizes. Mini cupcakes are popular at catered events, such as weddings, amongst those wanting to try a variety of flavors and little tykes.

Tell me more about Nationwide Shipping.

Several of the cupcakes we make can be shipped nationwide. Cupcakes are shipped via FedEx overnight, so you can rest assured the product you’re receiving/sending is the freshest possible. When you create an online order, the date you select is the date on which the cupcakes will be delivered to their destination. Cupcakes can be delivered on the following days of the week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.

Can you customize my cupcakes?

There are certain cupcakes that work well for limited amounts of customization, and certain ones that really look best just the way we prepare them each day. Cupcakes that can be somewhat customized include:

  • Party Animal
  • Pleasantville
  • Cloud 9

Customization is a cost of 25 cents per standard sized cupcake or 15 cents per mini cupcake. Ask us about sprinkles or tinted buttercream to match your event’s theme, which can be done without additional charge. We can also tie in your event’s colors by changing up the cupcake liner to match (on orders of 2 dozen or more), based on availability of color, etc.

Call one of our Cupcake Ninjas and ask about what we’re able to do. Orders requiring any customization require at least 24 hours advance notice, and sometimes we just aren’t able to customize on busily-booked days. (We just want to give your cupcakes and everyone else’s as much care and attention as possible!)

Can I call ahead and order my cupcakes for pickup?

If you’re after onesies or twosies of many different flavors, come on into the store and we will be happy to serve you. If you’re browsing our selection and like what you see, feel free to call us in the morning or create an online order for pickup and we will pull your favorite flavors and set them aside for you to pick up later on.

If the flavor you desire is not available on your preferred day, we need you to order at least one dozen of them so it makes sense for us to bake them up from scratch. Thank you for your understanding and for helping us maximize our time and resources!

Wait a second, didn't you used to be Downtown?

Yes, we used to be! (For three and a half glorious years, as a matter of fact!) Our store is now located in The Bridges at 57th Street.

We expanded in August 2013 to better serve our neighbors and friends in the Sioux Falls community. We now have longer hours (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.), outdoor patio seating, a private party room and an airy and bright, expansive dining room for guests to enjoy cupcakes at our cupcakery. More information about our new location is available here.

Can we bring our group in and tour Oh My Cupcakes!?

Of course! We frequently host tours for daycares, schools and other organizations. To best manage our space and accommodate our other guests, groups of at least six people and less than 30 people work best. If your group is larger than 30, we’re happy to work in a rotation of several smaller groupings at a time. Tour cost is $3.00/person and includes:

  • A tour of the Magical Cupcake Kitchen
  • Basic frosting/decorating lesson
  • Choice of a chocolate or vanilla cupcake

Can my group rent your facility for our party, shower or event?

Yes! We are delighted that our new home has a private party room which can allow for bridal and baby showers, birthday parties, and a multitude of fun gatherings. Our semi-private party room holds roughly 12-15 people.

Our room rental rate is as follows:

  • When you purchase two dozen standard sized cupcakes, or four dozen minis, we will reserve the room for you for two hours.
  • All beverages must be purchased through Oh My Cupcakes! We offer dairy fresh milk, fresh brewed coffee by the pot or by the cup, and a variety of sodas in vintage glass bottles. Additionally, we have lemonade in large dispensers for your party guests, which may be purchased for your party or group. Inquire for pricing.
  • That’s it! Cupcakes and beverages and you can enjoy your party time here. We sincerely want this to be a place that family and friends gather.

Can we use your party room for our meeting or Bible study or book club or ... ?

Yes! We are delighted that our new home has a private party room which can allow for small meetings and gatherings of many types. It is our sincere hope that Bible studies, small groups, book clubs and groups such as this will meet and build relationships within our cupcakery’s walls. What an honor! Our semi-private party room has seating for roughly 12-15 people.

With small gatherings such as a weekly group, our policy is as such:

  • The room may be reserved up to one week in advance, as long as there is nothing else on the calendar. (For instance, if your group meets every Monday at 5 p.m., you will need to reserve it each week for the upcoming week.)
  • If we have a “paying” event such as a shower or birthday party schedule prior to your group reserving for the upcoming week, we will be sure to let you know.
  • There is no charge and no minimum purchase to reserve our room, just let us get you on the calendar, come on in and enjoy our space. (We bet you’ll grab at least a cupcake or two while you’re here!)

Do you offer birthday parties for kids?

We do! Each birthday party consists of:

  • An opening activity to keep the little party guests busy until everyone arrives.
  • A kitchen tour of the Magical Cupcake Kitchen.
  • A short frosting and decorating lesson.
  • Two cupcakes to decorate. (One to eat during the party and one for guests to take home and show off their handwork!)
  • A game, and adequate time for presents and fun during the party.

Cost, features and price vary based on the type of birthday party package you choose. Read more on the “Parties & Events” page of our website in the Birthday Parties section.

Do you have any food allergy information?

We use a number of nut extracts, including almond extract, in our delicious cupcakes and made-from-scratch frostings. If you have any nut sensitivities, you may want to refrain from consuming our products. We also use fresh ingredients such as eggs, milk and wheat. If you are sensitive or allergic to any of these, we recommend you refrain from consuming our products.

Do you sell Gluten Free Cupcakes?

We do! We offer gluten free cupcakes several days per week, after overwhelming guest request. You can find the rotation of gluten free cupcake flavors here. After a lot of research and recipe development, we created our recipes to be as close to our signature Oh My Cupcakes! recipes as possible, only in a gluten free option.

Here is some important information you should know regarding gluten free at Oh My Cupcakes:

  • While we make every effort to attempt to keep our GF flavors, pans, kitchen tools, etc. away from our wheat flour and other products containing gluten, we want to make it absolutely clear that we do NOT have a gluten-free kitchen.
  • We’ve added gluten free to our menu for those who are choosing a gluten free lifestyle or have just some mild sensitivities. Our gluten free cupcakes are NOT a suitable option for those with an extreme gluten allergy or a gluten intolerance.

If you have any questions, please ask for a manager upon a visit or phone call to our store.

Do you have nutritional information on your cupcakes and frostings?

I like to say that anything baked in our kitchen has the calories baked right out of it! Just kidding … I know, I know, they do contain calories. We bake from scratch and use fresh, real ingredients like milk, butter, eggs and sugar. They are not low-calorie. We don’t have nutritional info on our lovely sweet treats as of yet, but if you’re super concerned, we always like to recommend our mini cupcakes. Minis are just two to three bites and are a nice way to enjoy a treat without going overboard on your healthy eating plan.
