Though CupCakers has been catering and creating delicious treats for quite some time, the store opening on Nov. 1 marked the first of its actual shop locations. The grand opening had lines out the door on West First Street from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The beautifully decorated shop had great displays of all its featured and favorite cupcakes, as well as fresh beverages. CupCakers also had entertainment for kids, providing free balloon animals and temporary tattoos. Additionally, there were samples sporadically around the shop of the various cupcake flavors, both regular sized and mini.
The store was a cozy and modern, café atmosphere. The decorative colors and walls gave a candy shop feel with a relaxing and mellow tone. With its convenient location, CupCakers will surely draw lots of attention to downtown shoppers and foot-traffic. Certainly, a great place in Oswego to stop in and get your sweet tooth fix.
Guests enjoyed CupCakers’ samples and coffee and buzzed about their favorites.
“My favorite I’ve sampled is definitely the red velvet,” Oswego resident Alexis Musco said.
While others nodded in agreement, guests enjoyed all the flavors offered, which included red velvet, peanut butter fudge, triple chocolate fudge, salted caramel, pumpkin cream cheese, and white chocolate raspberry. As for me, I recommend the peanut butter fudge for the perfect, sweet tooth craving. And, of course, I had to purchase a few to take home for my friends and family to try.
CupCakers owned by Amy Sutter has been providing delectable goodies to various venues for several years. Besides cupcakes, the business has an expertise in cakes and pies of all different shapes, sizes, and flavors. It also offers a wide variety of Italian style cookies and cookie cakes.
