Over the weekend, Nat and I decided to enjoy the "nice" weather and took the Babe for a walk in her stroller. We stopped for lunch (at Fontano's Subs), then walked by the newly opened Heavenly CupCake Shop in Downtown Elmhurst. It is sandwiched between Starbucks and the York Movie Theatre on York Street - a prime location.
Sweet Mandy B's-type of place: a bakery - very prominently featuring cupcakes with crazy frostings - but also a place where you could get cookies/brownies/whoopie pies/cakes/etc.
We'd love to have a place we can walk to when we needed to pick something up for a party or for an everyday indulgence.
Unfortunately, after walking into this place, it is clear that their vision is closely confined around cupcakes. In fact, when we were in there, I asked the owner, "So...all you guys have are cupcakes. In the future...if I ever wanted a brownie or cookie, I'm going to have to somewhere else, right?" She replied that they were ONLY going to focus on cupcakes - and were not going to introduce any other product types to their cases.
