Sam’s Room

Samuel Austin McNiff

Sam is Peter’s Special Needs son and hero. “Sam’s Very Messy Chocolate Cupcake” is dedicated to Sam and children everywhere. With each purchase you help provide much needed financial support to a local charity or organization providing assistance, medical or otherwise, for children in need.


We are happy to make small one time donations to any charity or non-profit event. We can donate 24 mini cupcakes, or 12 regular classic cupcakes.

We only accept requests for donations in person at the bakery.

Community and Republic of Cake

When we started Republic of Cake we made some very conscious decisions about what we wanted. First, we wanted to make the finest cupcakes we could using as many ingredients from local providers as possible. Second, we wanted to offer a great products at reasonable prices. Third, we wanted to be a part of the local community by supporting local non-profit organizations and schools. We think we’ve done what we set out to do.
