Midnite Confection’s Cupcakery (MCC) is the perfect example of the American Dream.  Located in Baltimore, Maryland, Aaron and I started this small, family business 6 years ago.  We turned our love for baking and making people smile into our daily reality.

I’ve been baking since I was a kid.  Continuing the traditions and recipes that my parents and grandmothers handed down.  Aaron continued that passion and took it to another level.  Many nights, well after midnight, I would find him home whipping up all kinds of desserts and breads. It wasn’t too long after that I would join him and we would push each other to find new flavors or confection combinations. So, with a little encouragement from family and friends, we decided to open MCC.

Now, we are on the cusp of partnering with a national brand to have our products featured throughout Baltimore.  This opportunity will allow us to deliver on two very important components of our vision:  community support through job creation and community development through partnerships in Baltimore and surrounding communities.

In order to take advantage of the opportunity, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

If you can support us today, your funding will make possible:

·         Necessary repair work to update our delivery vehicle to meet our new business demands

·         Upgrade our website to allow for easier access and to provide our customers with updates,   pictures and news about our growth with community partnerships

·         Design and creation of labeling and packaging needed for this new venture

·         Updated signage to ensure our storefront is visible and inviting to all of our customers

We are only here today because of the unwavering support we continue to receive from our “Midniters” -- the fabulous customers who continue to support us and share the Midnite love!  As our journey moves forward and we grow, we intend to hold onto our core values: producing an authentic, quality product and valuing our customers. These are the values that have afforded us to exist for 6 years.

We take our responsibility and vision to be a part of a thriving Baltimore seriously and look forward to this new chapter for MCC!

Thank you for your investment!! Please look back in March for more news and updates on the big reveal with our new partnership!

Dear Midniters,

We would like to take an opportunity to provide an update for this campaign!

We can now announce that we have partnered with Starbucks as part of their Community Program!

We were chosen in September as the minority business supplier for Baltimore and we will be supplying our Midnite cupcakes to 12 Baltimore Starbuck's locations, with the opportunity to expand throughout the city and possibly further!

This partnership is not only an opportunity for our growth, but also an opportunity for us to provide jobs within the city and to participate in programs that enrich our Baltimore community- this is what we are all about!

Though we have made HUGE progress in this campaign, we still are looking to meet our goal and increase our purchasing power for ingredients, packaging, and storefront improvements. We also are in need of upgrading our website, our delivery vehicle and refreshing our branding.

These are the areas to which your donations will be used!

We cannot thank enough all the people who have supported us thus far with their contributions and we look forward to announcing more updates as we continue to grow.

Please share this campaign with everyone you know!

Stay Sweet,
The MCC Team

P.S. Check Out the Official Announcement!!
