A taste of magic will transport you to the wizarding world

Calling All Muggles and Wizards: Diagon Alley ATX and The Cupcake Bar are Joining Forces!

Grab your robes, wands, and broomsticks and immerse yourself in the wizarding world! At The Cupcake Bar, a huge part of our mission is to give back to our local community. We are proud to partner with Diagon Alley ATX once again to provide sweet treats in support of the Austin Imagination Foundation Project.


What is Diagon Alley ATX?

For muggles that haven’t had the pleasure of attending, once a year magical wizardry transforms a South Austin home into Hogwarts, just in time for the holidays!

A tradition that began in 2017 as a way for Joel Pace to cheer his wife up after a breast cancer diagnosis has transformed and grown into a fundraising effort for the Austin Imagination Foundation Project. This foundation benefits children in our community, providing support to multiple nonprofits including Foster Angels of Central Texas, Variety Texas - A Children’s Charity, and Zach Theatre’s Educational programs. 

Although the annual display is taking a hiatus in 2023 for some re-imagination, you can head back to Hogwarts in 2024.

How can I help support Diagon Alley ATX?

With the display on hiatus in 2023, we still wanted to continue to support the Austin Imagination Foundation. So, we're bringing back some of our limited-edition Harry Potter-themed treats!

Think of us as Honeydukes - a one stop shop to satisfy your sweet tooth! From December 5th through December 22nd (or until supplies run out!), you can share in the magic by ordering our spellbinding treats. 

Be sure to stop by Gringotts because your Galleons, Sickles, and Knuts are doing more than securing fantastic treats! 20% of the sales from our Harry Potter-themed treats will be donated to Austin Imagination Foundation Project.

In addition to purchasing our treats, you can provide direct support by making a donation in $5 increments here, or you can Venmo @DiagonAlleyAtx.
