My son just moved into the dorms at UNC Charlotte last week, and his birthday is Friday. I'd like to have a dozen cupcakes delivered, but can't seem to find a bakery to do it. Does anybody know of any? THANKS!

Try Nonna's sweets. Not sure if they deliver, but they are in the University area and they have the best cupcakes ever.

Try the Bread Basket in the Charlotte/Matthews area. Their main business is delivery so my guess would be that they could deliver to the university.

Unless they delivering to him in person at the school - I wouldn't do that. Where specifically are you having them delivered? The buildings that house the dorms are locked - their is a special address for mail deliveries not sure about food. My attend is a sophomore this year at the school.

Simply give the delivery people the cell number of the student/son and they call when there. That's how my sister got all her deliveries. Op, tell your son to expect a delivery.

No offense, but I have a feeling a male at a new college might be a little embarrassed by his mom sending him cupcakes to his dorm..

Are you kidding me? When my son was at Ball State in IN, he & his dorm mates loved getting food deliveries. Anything from home is better than what they were getting at school, lol. I sent him treat bags filled with candy for Halloween. Everyone came "Trick-or-Treating" to his room. Homemade cookies, Easter treats & such. College kids love that stuff!

Food and candy sure, just not sure about cupcakes. It also might be better if they were just sent somewhere that he could pick them up and not delivered directly to the dorm.

I think a box of cupcakes would be appreciated by the guy and his roommates. It's a thoughtful gift. Unfortunately I don't know any service that would actually deliver it.
