Swirl Cupcake’s was a dream to work with when we recently held a birthday celebration for our employee association. They were very accommodating to our needs – high volumes of cupcakes, ability to provide a gluten-free alternative, time co-ordination between our many groups and of course providing us with a delicious selection of cupcake flavors. Lynette was quick to get back to us with answers to questions we had and somehow among the chaos that ensued kept a calm and collected demeanor.
