Our cupcakery is ever-so-close to opening for business! After months of renovating an old building to be fitted out with a kitchen for on-site cupcake baking and to transform it to a petite bakery, opening date is near. There are still the last inspections to pass and final preparations to be completed before we can fire up the ovens but when we are officially open it will be announced right here on our website, hopefully within the next couple of weeks (and of course our Grand Opening will follow not long after!). For those wondering of the cupcakery's location, we are at 86 Russell Street - opposite Betros Brothers and nextdoor to Tall Poppy's Furniture. The photo at right is a sneak peak of the decor of the cupcakery to keep you all going until we open!
