Where are you located?
In April 2016, the Chocolate Moose moved from our existing location to a new spot on Main St. We are now located at 130 S. Main St., inside M. Judson Books, next door to the Westin Poinsett Hotel.
Do you offer gluten-free desserts?
We do! We’re quite proud of our gluten-free recipes and have been told that they’re some of the best around. We feature one gluten-free cupcake flavor in the bakery every day, and are always happy to take special orders by the dozen, as well as mini and mega cupcakes.
Our gluten free recipes use a custom blend of tapioca and millet flour. Please note that although we prepare & bake in separate batches, our kitchen is not an allergy-free environment. We strongly urge those with severe allergies to avoid our baked goods as we cannot guarantee their safety.
Do you have anything for vegans or those with dairy/egg allergies?
Our signature chocolate cake recipe is free of dairy and eggs, and it is always available in the store. We make vegan icings with a butter substitute. Our icings can also be made soy-free if necessary.
As with our gluten-free recipes, our kitchen is not an allergy-free environment.
Are you a nut-free facility?
No – we regularly make items using peanut butter, almond extract, and a variety of nuts. Please notify us if you have a nut allergy, and we will be sure to point out any menu items that include nuts. We strongly urge those with severe allergies to avoid our baked goods as we cannot guarantee their safety.
I’m involved in a charity or community event. Do you make donations?
For legitimate non-profits and charities, we will carefully consider your request for yesterday’s cupcakes or consider making a monetary donation. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your request, including a brief summary of your organization and need, the date you’re requesting the donation, and your Tax ID letter. We require at least 30-days notice for all requests.
Please note that while we are committed to giving back to the community, we cannot accommodate all requests. If our resources are committed at the time of your request, we ask that you keep us in mind for the future!
I’m not serving my cupcakes until tomorrow – should I refrigerate them?
Please don’t! We recommend that you enjoy your cupcakes on the same day you purchase them, but we know that can’t always be the case. Cupcakes store best in an airtight container at room temperature. Let us know if you will be serving your cupcakes the following day, and we’ll gladly wrap them for you.
I love your store! Can I host a birthday party, wedding shower, or other event here?
Thanks – we love it too! And we love hosting parties here! Please contact our friends at M. Judson Books to talk about reserving the community room or other area for your upcoming event!
