Cupcake coup in Locust Point
Some sort of mysterious cupcake coup appears to have taken place in Locust Point.
The Baltimore Cupcake Company's website says that the company is offering free delivery in Baltimore "while we relocate." It doesn't say where it's relocating, and no one from there has called me back to say, so I can't tell you more than that.
Caroline's Cupcakery, which opened today, is owned by Caroline Jones, 33, who decided to chuck her career selling medical devices to open a bakery.
Eventually she'd like to offer coffee, cakes, breads and fine chocolates. But on opening day, she was sticking strictly to cupcakes, several flavors of them.
There's a Margarita cupcake in honor of Cinco de Mayo; PB&Joy, which is a peanut butter cupcake with peanut butter icing; PB&Chocolate, that's peanut butter cupcake with chocolate icing; and Death by Chocolate.
"Jumbo" cupcakes are $3 each, or $33 dozen. Mini-sized are $1.25 each, or $13 a dozen.
Jones is offering half-price cupcakes for real estate agents on Open House Wednesdays. She's hoping that they'll want to offer the treats at their open houses. (And no, they don't have to come in with their gold Century 21 blazers to prove they're agents. A business card will do.)
She's also offering a buy one, get one half price special for Locust Point residents on Thursdays.
Hours are Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Closed Sunday and Monday.
