Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my cupcakes last?

Our cupcakes are best if eaten the same day they are purchased, however they will still be delicious for up to 3 days after, as long as they are kept in their original box or an airtight container.

What can I do to keep my cupcakes fresher for longer?

Cupcakes don’t like to be refrigerated, as they dry out the cake, but if you want to keep the cupcakes in their best state for a longer period of time, then freezing them in an airtight container is perfect. Just let them come back to room temperature on their own, and enjoy!


Where are Gabby's Cupcakes baked?

Our cupcakes are baked on site at our bakery at Shop 13, 18 Inverness Road, Browns Bay, Auckland, New Zealand. We use the freshest ingredients available and every cupcake is made with love.

How far in advance do I need to place an order?

For a cupcake order we need at least 24 hours to make the freshest cupcakes iced to perfection for pickup or delivery. For cake creations  we need 72 hours notice , so that we can throw all our creative talents into making something you’ll love.

What is Gluten?

There is no reason why someone with a gluten-free diet should miss out on scrumptious cakes and desserts, especially at Gabby's Cupcakes. Since the company's inception, the team at Gabby's Cupcakes have been committed to providing their customers with the highest quality freshly baked cakes, cupcakes, desserts and muffins whatever their dietary needs.
Gluten is a protein often used in foods as an additive to thicken, stabilise or create flavour and one of the most common forms of it is “dextrin”. It can be found in wheat, rye and barley amongst other foods. Symptoms can be debilitating and many sufferers find themselves missing out on many of their favourite foods as these food groups tend to be prevalent in many cultures' typical diet. Others who don't necessarily suffer from gluten allergies such as coeliac disease, find a gluten-free diet a positive step towards a healthier diet and lifestyle.
For that reason, at Gabby's Cupcakes, we can cater gluten-free versions of our delicious products with no compromise on taste, sensation, texture or eating experience. Gabby's Cupcakes achieves this by recognising that everyone loves yummy food and they don't come much better than delicious light fluffy cakes, savouries, cupcakes and desserts.


Gluten free cupcakes

By replacing the gluten content in the Gabby's Cupcakes' recipes, all our products retain the delicious scrumptiousness found in all our savouries and desserts and all our gluten free cakes and muffins can be designed and baked to your own personal designs, shapes, colours and themes, whatever the celebration.
Whether it's a lavishly rich chocolate ganache, a devilishly decadent red velvet cupcake or a wholesome berry muffin to warm the heart, you can always be sure Gabby's Cupcakes gives you just what the doctor ordered, whatever your needs.
