So some of you know about my quiet-but-intense predilection for cupcakes... Visiting Billy's every time I go to NYC, for example, and discovering no fewer than THREE cupcake bakeries in Asheville, N.C. when I was passing through there in August. Imagine my chagrin to discover last summer that Austin had ZERO - count 'em - ZERO cupcake bakeries (unless you count grocery stores, which I don't). But wait, what's this? Last week when I paid a visit to the legendary Hill Country Weavers on a whim, what do I spot RIGHT NEXT DOOR? You guessed it - a cupcake stand!
hey cupcake! is one of many Austin businesses that are run out of these old sno-cone trailers - there's a creperie and a real Sno-Cone place, all within a square mile or so. So guess who's got a cupcake for lunch today, hmm?
