Local Cupcake Delivery?

My husband has the fine pleasure of attending an over-night business meeting on his birthday (Courtyard Marriott at the convention center) and I was hoping to send him some cupcakes to enjoy while he's away (a traditional birthday cake would be a bit too much for him). My original plan was to order from Crumbs in NYC - but they ship frozen and I don't know if he'd be able to thaw them out in time to enjoy them. That being said, I'm looking for a similar local bakery who can deliver freshly-baked goods at a somewhat reasonable price? He will be attending said meeting w/ his divisional team of 10 people, so he will most likely be sharing. (I'm thinking a doz would be good) I would like the ability to choose more than one variety of cupcake if possible. Maybe a sampler? Thanks for any/all suggestions!!

  1. You might check with the Flying Monkey bakery in the Reading Terminal Market. I'm not sure they usually deliver, but it's really close to the Courtyard so if they can't do it, they might be able to hire a courier. They also make really awesome whoopie pies.
