|Are you dreaming of a Cupcake Social dreamcicle?|
It's that sad time of year when the golden leaves are littering the gutters and the food trucks are heading for their winter hibernation caves. Lucky for us, there is at least one truck that will be moving its tasty treats indoors to a brand new storefront. The brick and mortar chapter of A Cupcake Social's tale is about to begin.
The new Cupcake Social shop will be opening up at 3800 28th Avenue South in Minneapolis. It will be a tidy little 10-seat space with a kids' area/table. It's very important to owners Jess Stone and Suzette Herr that the space offers a cozy, comfy environment for families to hang out and enjoy homemade ice cream and cupcakes. The two will also be available for hosting cupcake baking and decorating events in the store especially geared towards kids. (Suck it, Chuck E Cheese).
Guests will find the bakery case stocked with several flavors from A Cupcake Social's truck (oh, sweet, salty, creamy, rich dulce de leche cupcake, we are coming for you!) There will also be several new flavors. "We'll be rotating our 50-plus flavors weekly," said Stone.
Stone and Herr hope to complement the lively neighborhood they're moving in to, so they won't serve any gourmet coffee options, as Keen Eye Coffee is located just across the way. (Northbound Brewhouse is also nearby, in case cupcakes and porter pairings turn out to be the next big thing.)
As for the truck, this movable cupcake feast will not be gone forever. "Our truck was busier then ever this summer with private events, and we are booking out next summer already," said Stone.
They plan to be open Monday through Saturday and hope to be open before the holidays. "'Hope' is the essential word," said Stone. "We are hoping for mid to late November. We will definitely be posting up-to-date info on the progress on Facebook
and most important, we will have the official invite to our big grand opening party with free samples, a meet and greet, and an open tour."
