Via Philadelphia City Paper food blog Meal Ticket comes the news that Philly Cupcake is expanding:
Philly Cupcake (12th and Chestnut), which opened in December at 12th and Chestnut, is putting the finishing touches on a big expansion directly south, into what was Zack’s Cafe. Co-owner Johnny Columbo tells Meal Ticket the new space, which is roughly 550 square feet, will serve as an “art kitchen,” aka a wide-open space where folks can watch PC’s bakers prepping, mixing and decorating.
And right now they're selling these back to school cupcakes (via Facebook):
Peanut Butter and Jelly, we stuff our peanut butter cupcake with strawberry jelly and topped with peanut butter buttercream; Carrot Cake with special topper; "The Teacher's Pet", spiced applesauce cake paked with raisins and topped with a cinnamon brown-butter buttercream and fondant top...per; Lunch Box Chocolate Cake, our moist chocolate cake filled with vanilla buttercream and topped with more buttercream and chocolate glaze. $13 (available in store, and can be special ordered)
