Sara Coleman, owner of this quaint business located in the Glenwood South district of downtown Raleigh loads a pastry bag with icing, soon to become the billowy dollops that top her many creations.  A hands on owner mixing it up with the bakers and decorators. Sara’s personal touch and care for her business are on display in the decor and it is also obvious through the kind disposition that all of her staff exudes, not only to me, an intruding photographer, but to every customer who enters.  The bakery offers a dozen(or so) flavors, made fresh daily along with a flavor of the week to additionally tempt those of us with nary any hope of self control.  Do not be duped by the name of this business because alongside these cupcakes are an assortment of muffins, cookies, coffees and treats abound.  They also provide cupcakes and regular decorated cakes for any of your event or special occasion needs.  Likewise if you are dining at one of the many restaurants in Glenwood South, then consider the Cupcake Shoppe as an alternative dessert option.  Continuing your evening in this establishment during their extended weekend hours will no doubt provide the opportunity for a memorable evening.

Thank you to Sara and your staff for allowing me the opportunity to visit, sample and shoot.
