|Yet another Austin cupcake company?
No, we are truly different…
At Hill Country Cupcake we use fresh and when possible, organic and local ingredients, in our cupcakes. We believe in good, high-quality ingredients. We bake from scratch in small batches, using family recipes that have been passed down for the last 3 generations. We do not use shortening or shortcuts in any of our cupcakes. In addition, we have close to 90 unique flavors and are able to accommodate special diet needs, including gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and sugar-free needs. You can and will taste the difference.
This family-run business started out as a hobby and outlet from my mom Shella’s and my “day job.” My mom Shella, a registered nurse with 20+ years of experience, has worked in home health, hospice, and geriatric care management. I followed in her footsteps but instead have focused on pediatric and family health, and I am now a master’s-prepared nurse, a Family Nurse Practitioner, specializing in Gastroenterology. We continue our day jobs in nursing, as we are both passionate about providing patient care, however, we believe in doing everything you love, so we choose to do both – nursing AND baking.
Over the past 5 years HCC has expanded from private orders to farmer’s markets to wholesale retail supply to wedding and event catering. Despite our growth – and the potential for further growth – we choose to stay family-run and small. When you work with HCC, you work with Mike, Shella, and Katie Bycura. No staff; just us. Allow our family to take care of yours!
We do not have a storefront. Instead find us at the following places:
Barton Creek Farmers Market
Saturdays, 9AM – 1PM
Barton Creek Square Mall – Behind Dilliards
Lakeway Farmers Market
Sundays, 9AM – 1PM
Austin’s farmer’s markets are part of a thriving and unique community. They are better than a permanent brick and mortar storefront, as they encourage people to shop local. They also serve as a one-stop shop for local produce, prepared specialty foods, local artisan’s work, live music, and family-centered fun!
Can I place a private order?
Yes, you can. We can accommodate Monday thru Friday orders only on a case-by-case situation. Contact us to inquire. Otherwise, we can have your private order available for pick up at the farmer’s markets. Please place your order at least 3 days prior to your needed date.
