Treat yourself in lockdown, Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses are giving away free cupcakes this week

Lockdown 7.0 just got a whole lot sweeter.

Everyone loves a good cupcake. Whether you’re a loyal chocolate fan, or you’ve converted to the red velvet, Nutella, or salted caramel camps, you are probably — like us — always on the hunt for that perfect cupcake.

While we’ll never complain about eating a cupcake, only a select few cupcakes can be classified as superior, crème de la crème and worth dreaming about – and Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses is where you’ll find some good ones, especially when they’re free.

Renowned for winning hearts with their huge selection of treats, Victoria’s bakery kings are giving away 10,000 free birthday cupcakes with any purchase this Thursday, August 26, as part of their 120th birthday celebrations.

What you need to know

  • Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses are celebrating 120 years with an epic giveaway
  • The Victorian business will be giving away 10,000 treats each Thursday through August
  • Customers simply must make a purchase to receive their freebie

Bringing a dash of sweetness to Victorians in lockdown, the iconic bakery will be slinging a bunch of delicious vanilla cupcakes topped with a buttercream swirl and an edible icing disc to their customers within a 5km radius of their stores – and with more than 80 stores across the state, the odds of a free cupcake are in your favour.

We’re pretty keen to take a bite out of the edible icing disc atop these babies, which people can actually customise when ordering cakes from the bakery! Using their Design-A-Cake tool cake lovers can add a photo and place it on a cake, using the exact same edible icing as used for the top of the cupcakes. Selfie birthday cake in iso? Say no more.

Sweet, moist and pretty darn cute (as well as made with only the best ingredients), the ol’ fashioned cupcake from Ferguson Plarre will never ever let you down when it comes to those afternoon sugar cravings and is truly a worthy indulgence for your week, especially when it’s free.

There will be 120 of these free cupcakes at each store across Victoria, but you’ll have to be quick as the offer is only available while stocks last. To redeem your magical cupcake, all you need to do is make a purchase from the bakery, whether that be a coffee, sausage roll or Boston bun. It’s that simple.

The free cupcake offer makes up the final part of their birthday celebration giveaway, where they have been giving away free treats every Thursday in August. This is your last chance to reap the benefits of the big 120 celebrations.

Please note, free items are available in participating stores only. Limited to one item per person with purchase while stocks last.
