About The Project

Twist Cupcakery started as a family owned, licensed, home based bakery, under the moniker Alexandria’s Creations, in 2012. Alexandria’s Creations gained a great following of confectionery lovers over the years, but we were looking to restructure the business which included a name change and legal structuring. We unveiled Twist Cupcakery LLC on New Year’s Day 2015 to a very receptive and continually growing number of customers. With a growing following from website traffic, social media and word of mouth, we are constantly asked where our shop is located. We want to be able to better service your demands to have our delicious treats on a daily basis, and in varying quantities, and your contribution will greatly help us to open up our bakery, in Downtown Dayton this summer! To make this vision fully come to light, we are surely going to need your support! We have already found the perfect location! However, to make sure the space is an inviting environment for you to conduct business, study or relax with family and friends, it will require a significant capital investment. Ooh, did I forget to mention we want to bake delicious treats for you to enjoy, so the capital required for equipment such as commercial grade mixers, ovens, refrigeration and storage, just to name a few things, will require a significant portion of our overall budget! We will be using our personal savings for a large portion of this launch, but it’s just not enough to cover the aforementioned expenses. To truly make this bakery come to fruition we are looking to raise an additional $6,000. If we are able to raise more than that, it will allow us to look at further aesthetic upgrades such as flooring improvements, wall and cabinet finishings, serve ware, custom packaging, additional furniture especially for our outdoor seating area, as well as additional equipment on our wish list.

The Vision

Our bakery will offer gourmet cupcakes, cakes, brownies, cookies and other confectionery items with exceptional customer service. The atmosphere will be fit for a relaxing time with a book and your favorite cupcake, after school treats with the kids, a sweet pick me up during lunch, a Twisted happy hour event or an all-important business meeting. We believe that indulging in our confections is an experience, and we will strive to ensure that each customer has the best experience at Twist. From serving our cupcakes with the dignity of a plate and fork, to offering complimentary Wi-Fi and encouraging guests to stay and enjoy their treat and the inviting atmosphere of our bakery. At Twist, our customer’s needs are always in the forefront of our business planning; to our guests with dietary restrictions we will offer vegan, gluten free and paleo options because no one should have to miss out on our desserts. Can you believe there are no other bakeries in Downtown Dayton? With all of the promise that the Downtown area has as far as living, working and playing there is definitely a need for a bakery and Twist Cupcakery will set the standard. Help us be a part of the new things to come to Downtown!

Why Kickstarter?  

We want to have a bakery equipped to meet your growing needs! With that responsibility will take a large capital investment in order to purchase equipment to properly stock the bakery! The main reason we chose Kickstarter, as opposed to other crowd funding avenues, is we want to work for your support as we have done to date. We will show our appreciation of your contributions by offering you rewards. Your Kickstarter contributions will be used to pay for capital equipment, furnishing the shop, meet Health Department and City Inspection requirements and possibly purchase the necessary inventory.
