Free cupcakes today at Sweet Temptations

From the Albany Times-Union - again, the umpteenth reminder for bakeries (or anyone, really) - if you are going to court the press, your website should be up and running so people can get information about you. I know many of you don't care, and this is a cupcake blog, not a business or internet blog, but still; if your potential customers have nothing to go on, no phone number, no photos, nothing but a news article, how can they check you out? A website is a must! Especially when searching Facebook for "Sweet Temptations" yields many options. (Theirs is in the works, but the one the article links to is not yet active.) If anyone goes to this, send us a photo!

How to get people to show up at 11 a.m. on a Saturday morning for the opening of your new bakery and candy shop? Give them free cupcakes.

That’s what Sweet Temptations, a new shop at 469 Albany-Shaker Road in Colonie, plans to do tomorrow morning. Store owners Nina and Salina Crisafulli will be joined by Albany County Legislature Minority Leader Christine Benedict and Colonie Town Supervisor Paula Mahan for the opening ceremony, with 200 cupcakes to be given away to the first customers.
