About this project

I have been baking pies, cakes, and cookies for family, friends, and colleagues for years, and as a result was invited to participate in my neighborhood's farmers market.

I'm far from obtaining a commercial kitchen and the permits and licenses I'd need to sell my baked goods for human consumption, so because of my love of dogs, and all the cute ones that live in my community, I want to develop Pupcakes.

They'll be made in my kitchen with all natural and good for dog ingredients.  I have a lot of ideas, and I'd like to get to work developing them to come up with the perfect treats.  The funding will go toward ingredients ($300), packaging ($150), and signage ($100).

I'm offering cookies and cakes for humans as rewards for pledges, and Pupcakes too!  I plan to have them developed in May, and will have those rewards available at the Petworth Market (http://www.petworthmarket.org) so your pup can get a taste of what you helped me develop.  We can work out when you'll be there, and I'll make sure the rewards that fit your specifications are waiting for you.  If you're from out of town, we can make arrangements for adding postage, and maybe make a deal of extra cookies in place of a cake to make sending everything less messy.

I don't have a video yet, but please take a look at my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DepartmentOfConfections

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

FAQ

  • The meatloaf cake costs me about $60 to make. I charge $65 for them through Department of Confections, so there's virtually nothing to make on it. I'd be happy to let people make a pledge that they're comfortable with that in exchange for a meatloaf cake.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, I'd be happy to, but please include a fair amount for postage in the pledge. In the case of cakes, I'm hoping you'll except some extra Pupcakes or cookies to make up for the fact that cakes don't travel well in the post.
