He was inspired to open his stand by Magnolia Bakery, and also delivers (1 dozen minimum). Sign up for his mailing list and get a coupon for a FREE cupcake! Does it get any better than that? We'll work on getting an interview with him ASAP.
News 8 Austin just ran a story on him (click through for video portion):
A year and a half ago, Wes Hurt was selling electric scooters on the side of the highway.
Now the 29-year-old bakes cupcakes and sells them out of an Airstream trailer on South Congress Avenue.
Hey, Cupcake! has barely been in business a few weeks. He sold 400 the first day and said he's sold out every day since...
There are six flavors to choose from. At $2 a pop, you can venture away from vanilla and chocolate and give the red velvet and carrot cake a try.
“The cupcake is almost magical in and of itself. It’s a really weird deal that you can’t really explain it. It’s the nostalgia aspect of a cupcake. Reminding you of when you were younger,” Hurt said.
