ShoeBoxOven.com

Surfing around, I found this 2007 Washington Post article on ordering cupcakes online. I think this is going to be a big trend in cupcakes in the next year or two and those who can do quality, fast cupcake mail order will find themselves doing lots of business. I discovered ShoeBoxOven.com, which calls itself "a very tiny merry bakery."

As far as I can tell, they offer two kinds of cupcakes, both of which are for locals only (Arlington, Virginia):

Pumpkin Cupcakes



In Cinderella, a pumpkin turned into a carriage. In the ShoeBox Oven pumpkins turn into cupcakes. Topped with a ribbon of sweet buttercream and dotted with pumpkin malt balls, these cupcakes are a magical note to your holiday season.

Ruby Velvet cupcakes



Southern red velvet chocolate cake, topped with a ribbon of all-American buttercream and dotted with chocolate malt balls. Now that is how you eat a cupcake!

Here's the beginning of the article.
