The most recent donations were made to SJRC ($400), CAMP CAMP ($200), Basis Shavano($200), The Ferrari Kid ($200), HeartGift($100) . Due to COVID-19, the need in our community has become increasingly stronger and the Akki’s Cupcakery decided to donate ALL of its profits to Kids Charities.

"This has been a very tough year for everyone and God has given me the privilege to be able to use my baking talent and give to the kids in our community," says Akeila (Akki) Tejwani. "Also, I would like to express my gratitude to my Grandma, who has inspired me to do my best in everything, my little sister, Nikita Tejwani, who has been baking along with me and we have grown so much closer together in the past year due to this bakery and Nikita inspires me to learn continuously as she is on top of things and created new recipes for keto and gluten-free cakes and cupcakes, and last but not the least, my parents, without whom this idea would just be an idea and never would become a reality."

COVID-19 has been a pandemic the world has never seen in the past 100 years and this came as a shock to all of us. We stand strong as American citizens and help whoever can in this time of crisis is the message Akki’s Cupcakery team felt and wanted to do the best for the community.

"I started this bakery in Sophmore year and now as a junior, I am very happy to share that I was able to meet my goal of donating $3,000 to charities" Akki continues. "My parents have always taught me to pay forward in our community and live our family core values of HUGPC(Health & Happiness, Upright, Gratitude, Pay Forward and Continuous Learning".

All the kid’s charities have been very supportive of Akki’s Cupcakery mission and we are very happy to have partnered with them.

Hi, I am Akeila Tejwani, a Junior at Brandeis High School. I am very passionate about Cupcakes, Teas, and Working with Kids!

I came up with this idea of using organic ingredients for all my recipes and donating 50% of the proceeds to kids’ charities in San Antonio.

EVERYTHING IS MADE FRESH TO ORDER! We do not make dozens of cupcakes every day so whatever you order is made fresh ONLY FOR YOU!

I wanted to come up with healthy and vegan options for kids to enjoy the baking savories. Lots of kids are not able to enjoy all the baked food due to an unhealthy amount of calories found in baked products at grocery stores. Also, the ingredients used by them are not healthy for the overall health and fitness.

This way it will help the community in San Antonio and also fulfil my desire to be a health-conscious baker. Join me in this fun-filled journey for you and your kids that will help them enjoy the cupcakes and become a Healthier Happier YOU!!
