A Message From Cupcakes Actually

Dear Cupcakes Actually Customers, Over the past several years, we have loved serving you at our Village at Leesburg Shop. However, due to limited traffic to this location, we have decided to close the store and solely focus our attention on the Fairfax shop, starting January 1, 2017.  As we make this change and shift our priorities, we anticipate more delicious flavors and even more satisfied sweet tooths. New year, new opportunities! We will still deliver to the Leesburg/Loudoun County area and look forward to working with you for years to come. Thank you for your support and Happy Holidays!   Cupcakes Actually
