Here’s some sweet news to start your day!
According to published reports this morning, a new cupcake shop will open in Charleston’s Capitol Market early next month, settling into space between current vendors Purple Onion and The Wine & Cheese Shop.
Owner Sara Lane (who also owns Custom Cakes in Cross Lanes) plans to bake a variety of cupcakes and cake pops off-site, then bring them into the shop to sell. She says customers can expect a diverse selection of flavors and interpretations.
This is good timing, too. Cupcakes are all the rage these days, gracing the cover of fancy food magazines and replacing traditional cakes and birthday parties, baby and bridal showers, even weddings!
Café Cupcake has agreed to a temporary six-month lease, and will be open on weekends during regular market hours.
