Cupcakery (cupcake + bakery)

A “cupcakery” (cupcake + bakery) is a bakery that specializes in cupcakes. The term “cupcakery” has been cited in print since at least 2001.

Many establishments have “cupcakery” in their names. “The Cupcakery” (Las Vegas, NV) has trademarked its name with a first use on December 15, 2005.


10 November 2001, Frederick (MD) News-Post, “Decorated wreaths, trees highlight festival,” Holiday Helpers sec., pg. 6, cols. 3-4:
While gazing upon the creations, be sure to sample sweets from local bakeries, including Jefferson Pastry Shoppe, Mimi’s Cafe and Sweet Angela’s Cupcakery, and warm cider.

The Cupcakery
It has been tradition for a really long time that I have lemon cake for my birthday. But since there are just two of us, we don’t really need a whole cake sitting around the house. So we decided to visit The Cupcakery to get an individual-sized portion of cake. This place was recognized by the Las Vegas Review Journal’s Best of Las Vegas 2007 as the Best Dessert (newspaper’s choice). And boy, was it tasty.

Crumbs: From Neighborhood Cupcakery to Failed Chain
Tuesday, July 8, 2014, by Paula Forbes
After the announcement that cupcake chain Crumbs Bake Shop was unceremoniously closing all of its locations, it’s hard to believe they were ever once considered a success story. And yet: At their peak, there were 70 Crumbs locations. According to photos in the tabloids, Crumbs were adored by celebrities from Selena Gomez to Hillary Duff to Tori Spelling. They were the first publicly traded cupcake company.
