Saturday, Feb. 4 will mark The Lucky Cupcake Co.’s last day at its original Plumsteadville, Pennsylvania location before merging with its popular Peddler’s Village location in March.
“We’re moving–but we aren’t going anywhere,” says Joanne Jarin, Founder and Head Pastry Chef.
As a token of gratitude to the community, The Lucky Cupcake Co. will partner with Doylestown-based Once Upon a Dream, a Specialty Children’s Event Planner, to offer an afternoon of “cupcakes, crumpets and tea,” in addition to face painting and balloon-making. Door prizes will include chances to win a Lucky Cupcake Princess Birthday Party package, Lucky Cupcake hoodies and Ts and, of course, cupcakes. Most importantly, Lucky Cupcake’s Feb. 4 patrons will enjoy “a very special visit from Alice and her Wonderland friends.”
The Lucky Cupcake Co. staff will also be on-hand to demonstrate the art of fondant making—making it a “fond-ant” farewell for the grown-ups, too.
“We’ve done amazing things out of this location,” says Jarin. “We made it on Cupcake Wars. We were able to open a second location. It’s been a wonderful seven years in Plumsteadville. We plan to reopen another Upper Bucks store in the very near future. So it’s not goodbye; it’s kind of, ‘Seeya Soon.’”
The event is free and open to the public, and will be held from noon until 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4. The retail store will be open its normal Saturday hours, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
