Saint Cupcake was broken into on the evening before Valentines day. Apparently, bakers had been busy late into the night making sure cupcakes would be available for those that wanted them for their sweethearts. Imagine their distress, returning to find thieves had smashed a window and stolen 12 dozen cupcakes, a laptop, and all the recipes, but left the cash, including an overflowing tip jar. Even worse, because of the loss, cupcake sales were rationed the next day. All over Portland, there are women that didn’t get their cupcakes on Valentines day!
Who the hell breaks a window to steal cupcakes? Meth addicts aren’t hungry, so they can’t be blamed. Regular thieves would have taken the cash. As I see it, this leaves two possibilities:
- Some woman got 12 dozen cupcakes for valentines day (If this is you, he’s a psycho. You heard it here first).
- Someone provided cupcakes for their entire office, in which case this shouldn’t be hard to track down.
Either way, if you are walking through the park blocks late at night, and someone says “Hey buddy… wanna buy some cupcakes?”, call 911. These cupcake stealing scumbags need to be put behind bars.
I haven’t mentioned St. Cupcake on this site because everyone else has been talking about them, but they do have really good, addictive cupcakes. They have played an important part in my return to health. If I was reviewing them, I’d probably give 3.5 stars, but since I’m not, I’ll just say go and give them your support. In the meantime, we should form a posse!
I heard this rumor as well a few days ago, though I heard they actually took a little cash.

It ain’t no rumor. It’s true and it’s sad. Under the full moon thieves smashed the glass door and stole 7 dozen cupcakes (at least that’s what I remember). The good Saints at St. Cupcake had worked all day preparing for all the Valentine’s Day orders. You have no idea how depressing it is to come back a few hours later and find this sort of evil.
It is true that the stupid thieves overlooked many goodies including cash and a brand new laptop (they got a different laptop). I feel it’s obvious it wasn’t a pro job. My instinct says it was youths going for a thrill ride of sorts.
Stealing from St. Cupcake is akin to robbing a church. This place is just a couple months old, has some of the nicest people working there, and only seeks to make people happy with sugary delights. May shame and plagues fall upon the perpetrators!!!
Before Valentine’s day?!?! What bastards.
I think I’m going to have to go by there on the way home tonight. I should support the place after they had to deal with this. Plus, kick-ass cupcakes!
Stopped by today for the first time, great cupcakes, and a heck-of a cinnamon roll. Plan to go back, hopefully again and again.

Comments deleted. We aren’t going go that direction.
What an odd crime. It screams corporate espionage to me… Maybe somebody plans to open something called the “Devil’s Cupcakes”, and needed the recipes…
no one in particular says
Apollo: yeah, one of the things they took was a steno pad with baking notes. What kind of thief steals a used steno pad?
I’m thinking identity theft seems more likely, (hence leaving the brand new laptop, but taking the one with all the data on it). But why stop to take twelve dozen donuts!
But don’t mention it to Jami, she’s already freaked out enough about it.

This has inside job written all over it. Look for a St. Cupcake knock-off popping up in the not so distant future.Baked goodies are a infamously brutal,Darwinian business.It’s kill or BE killed.Let this incident be a warning!

I don’t think it was meth addicts … more likely pot smokers with the munchies. ;-)
Anyone watch “My Name is Earl” on Thursdays? Karma. What really bad karma to steal cupcakes on Valentines Eve … like the grinch. If they don’t make it right, there will be a kind of hell to pay.
