The Doughnut Bar

Score a hole-in-one with our doughnut bar — a treat so dreamy, guests’ eyes blissfully glaze over at first bite. We custom decorate each doughnut on the spot, with a generous swirl of luscious filling, a sweet drizzle, and festive sprinkles, fruit or other toppings. Also consider our “doughnut wall” display option, a do-nut-miss opportunity for unique décor.

Roaming Treat Bars

A Roaming Treat Bar is a sure conversation starter and a great add-on to The Cupcake Bar. Our Cupcake Bartenders roam the crowd with colorful, treat-filled trays and build custom cupcakes or candy bags for each guest, right on the spot!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer custom design packages?

Absolutely! Options include The Cupcake Bar, The Doughnut Bar, Roaming Treat Bars and, when in season, The Caramel Apple Bar. We specialize in designing the perfect package to suit each individual event. Check out some examples on our Facebook page.

Where are you all located?

Because we specialize in events, we don’t have a storefront. We are by appointment only. Please email info@thecupcakebar.com to set up a private tasting or any inquiries.

Where can I find a menu?

We offer an extensive array of cupcake flavors, fillings, icings and every kind of candy, sprinkle and sparkle you can imagine. The menu also changes seasonally and can be customized to suit your event. We provide menu options during the complimentary consultation.

Are your cupcakes and icings made from scratch?

Yes, everything is made from scratch—no cans, no mixes—and freshly prepared right before each event

Do you travel?

Location is no limitation. We can set up indoors, outdoors, at your home, office or almost any venue. We have catered events in Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and College Station. Travel fees apply for events outside the Austin area.

Do you offer cupcake delivery?

Most clients choose the full Cupcake Bar experience, but we also offer limited delivery of custom cupcake creations, cupcake kits and corporate gifts, based on availability.

Lori Schneider

Kimberley Carrillo
Operations Manager

Kimberley’s meticulous planning and organizational skills are part of the recipe for every successful cupcake bar event.

From building menus and coordinating logistics to managing client communication and overseeing our cupcake bartender team, Kim handles many behind-the- scenes details and finishing touches that put icing on the (cup)cakes and smiles on guests’ faces.

Her background includes extensive experience in event planning and wedding coordination, as well as a business management degree from Texas State University. She is a member of International Live Events Association, and serves on the board.

Besides cupcakes, a few of Kimberley’s favorite things are coffee, traveling and spending quality time with her dogs, Dean and Winchester.

Janie Mote

Affectionately known as our “Janie of all trades,” she juggles everything from coordinating linens and décor to building and serving custom desserts at events. And at the end of the day, she still says, “This job is so much fun, it doesn’t even feel like work!”

Janie has loads of positive energy and is a nurturer at heart. With an entrepreneurial background and more than 30 years of customer service experience — including retail, restaurants and corporate — she knows how to make people happy. Interacting with our clients and guests is her greatest joy on the job.

The busy mom of two also is an active community volunteer, so she values The Cupcake Bar’s commitment to support local nonprofit organizations.
