Flying Cupcakes

Have you seen our cupcake mural yet?! We've been wanting to put cupcake art on our walls for a long time, our old store was just too small to accommodate it. Now that we're in our new space, we knew we had to do something big. So we started thinking about who we would want to paint in our store, when we came across a post on our friends' blog called whateves.com (P.S. it's super random and only rarely offensive). Our friend Erin is a graphic artist and a painter; we like his stuff a lot so we asked if he'd be interested in designing a cupcake mural for us. He was into the idea so he made some time for us right away, and geez did it take time. Erin worked nights after we closed for about 4 or 5 days, he even pulled an all nighter (18 hours straight, with only an ice cream cupcake and carrot cupcake to sustain him). We documented the progress so you could all see how much work goes into painting such an awesome mural!




We're so happy with the newest edition to our 2nd street location and we hope you will enjoy admiring it and even take some photos of your friends eating our cupcakes in front of it! If you've seen our mural in person, you've seen how talented Erin is. If you are interested in contacting him to paint a special wall in your place, you can email him at erinbenator@gmail.com or check out his website.

Dear Erin, I'm your biggest fan. Love, me.
