from Ann Arbor News:
Let the cupcake war begin.
A year and a half after Cake Nouveau became the hip place to buy a mini cake confection in downtown Ann Arbor, a Birmingham cupcake shop plans to bring its treats here this summer. Think chocolate cheesecake, creme francaise, southern red velvet and Michigan bumpy cakes.
The Cupcake Station will take over the former Washington Street Gallery space in Ed Shaffran's Pretzel Bell building on East Liberty Street.
Kerry Johnson and Tom Holleman opened their Birmingham store in summer 2006. Johnson, who used to own a landscaping business, hopes to open the Ann Arbor location by the end of August.
Johnson said when he first wrote his business plan, he had no idea cupcakes would become as popular as they have - thanks in part to the fame of Magnolia Bakery in New York City and Sprinkles Cupcakes in California, both frequented by celebrities.
Like many other bakeries, they are expanding from their current location in Birmingham, Michigan (136 N. Old Woodward), and will operate both bakeries come the end of July/early August.
