FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is "The Girls Who Bake Next Door"?

The Girls Who Bake Next Door began as a dessert truck created in 2012 by two local girls who love to bake. Since then, we have retired our truck and now sell out of our shop and specialize in catering and custom cakes!

Where are you located?

We primarily sel out of our shop located at 210 Iolani Ave #1. Please click on our "Locations" for directions and hours. We also do a few events each year which are posted on our weekly schedule along with our daily menus on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

Do you take orders?

Yes, we do! Please see our special order flyer, which includes our special order pricing and order minimums. Note that all of our prices include tax, and we are able to deliver orders of $40.00 or more to the downtown, Kaka'ako, Ala Moana, Nu'uanu and Makiki areas free of charge. Please email us for delivery fees outside of these areas.

If we have other special orders on the day you are interested in ordering, you are welcome to piggyback those orders to avoid the special order minimums. Please email us at girlswhobake@hotmail.com or call us at (808) 983-9989 to see what our menu is for the day you are interested in ordering.

Can you deliver?

Yes, we can deliver! Pending our availability, we are able to deliver orders of $40.00 or more to the downtown, Kaka'ako, Ala Moana, Nu'uanu and Makiki areas free of charge. Please email us for delivery fees outside of these areas.

What are your most popular flavors?

Our best-selling cupcake is our Chocolate Toffee Peanut Butter Cupcake. Our next most popular cupcakes are Red Velvet and Cookies and Cream--our special order flyer lists the rest of our flavors in order of popularity.

Our best selling mochi is our Bod-Bod Butter Mochi, which is a layered mochi with butter mochi on the top half and mochi rice on the bottom half. Our cookies are also popular as they are all soft and chewy!

What do you recommend we order for our party?

We are best known for our cupcakes with our mochi as a close second. Typically, cupcakes are more universal, so this is most likely the best choice to please your guests. While we do offer a variety of cupcake flavors, our top three sellers by far are our Chocolate Toffee Peanut Butter, Red Velvet, and Cookies and Cream. Occasionally, customers also like to order Dark Chocolate if they are concerned about peanut butter allergies. To give you an idea of how popular these three flavors are, we typically make all of the other cupcake flavors on our menu once or twice a month.

For order counts, we typically recommend one regular cupcake per guest or two to three mini cupcakes per guest, depending on what other desserts are being served and how much of a dessert crowd that you have. For parties of 100 or more, we typically recommend two (and no more than three) cupcake flavors to reduce the likelihood of you running out of cupcakes, as the number of guests taking more than one flavor will not offset those passing on dessert. Please feel free to email us at girlswhobake@hotmail.com if you would like any recommendations on what and how much to order for your party.

How do we sample your flavors to order for our event?

Every day, we carry our top three selling cupcake flavors (Chocolate Toffee Peanut Butter, Red Velvet, and Cookies and Cream) and our top two selling mochi flavors (Butter Mochi and Bod-Bod Butter Mochi). Our menu is determined by orders and customer requests, so it may require several visits to our shop or truck to sample all the flavors that you are interested in. If you would like us to notify you when we will be making certain flavors, please feel free to email us at girlswhobake@hotmail.com with the flavors you are interested in!

Is your dessert truck available for special events or large parties?

Yes, we are available to serve desserts off our truck for special events and large parties! We typically request an order minimum of $500.00 off our special order flyer plus a travel fee based on the mileage to the destination address if outside of town in order for our truck to be on site. No additional fee is charged to have our truck on site. However, we can work with you on this minimum if the truck can be on site for no longer than an hour and a half. Please email us at girlswhobake@hotmail.com to confirm our availability or with any questions.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept cash, checks made payable to "The Girls Who Bake Next Door", and all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover). We can always provide you a receipt upon payment, but if you require an invoice in advance, we can provide you with that as well! Additionally, if it is more convenient for you, we can also email you an invoice to prepay online at your convenience--if this is a better option for you, please let us know!

Do you have gift certificates?

Yes, we have gift certificates available in customizable denominations!
