It’s our birthday and we’re sweetening your ride!

Three years ago, we hit the streets of South Africa and it’s been an absolutely exhilarating journey. Since we can’t throw a party big enough to thank every one of you who has helped us get here, we’ve decided to bring the party to you!


COME CELEBRATE WITH US!


From 11am on Friday, 23 September 2016, we’ll be delivering cupcakes from your city’s favourite bakery – and it’s FREE! Riders across Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth can request 2 decadent cupcakes from local bakeries Cupcake Boutique, The Velvet Cake Co,Cupcakery and Savannah Bakes, at the simple tap of a button.

Here are the sweet deets:

  • Open your Uber app between 11am – 1pm on Friday, 23 September 2016.
  • Slide across to the ‘UberCUPCAKE’ view and request a ride as normal.
  • If successful, your Uber will arrive and deliver 2 delicious cupcakes for free.
  • PRO TIP: While we want to provide cupcakes to everyone in SA, demand is going to be incredibly high. So if you don’t see any cupcakes available, don’t worry – open the app a few minutes later and try again!

The Fine Print

  • Each request will include 2 cupcakes from your city’s favourite bakery for free.
  • The cupcake image in the header is not representative of the cupcake that you will receive.
  • Demand will be very high – check back  if your first request is unsuccessful. We’ll keep delivering until we run out of decadent cupcakes!
  • Available in selected areas of Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth.
