Colorado Springs gets a cupcake truck

From News First 5:

Colorado Springs has its share of taco trucks, but the newest food truck in town is serving up some sweet delights, cupcakes, with a little help from Facebook.

The Springs Cupcake Truck's owners, Mike Bergman and Pat Kennelly, use the social networking site to tell people where they're going to be. They also ask their fans before they go out, where they should park.

Recently they also held a contest to name The Springs Cupcake Truck on their Facebook page; the winning name, CoCo.

The cupcakes are made by Cake Crumbs Bakery in Denver, owned by Mike and Pat's Niece. The bakery makes them special to survive delivery to the Springs, "They're dipped and decorated so they don't fall apart during the rickety ride over here," explains Mike.

Some of their flavors include:

Zippy Lemon

Lemon cake filled with fresh lemon curd and topped with cream cheese frosting and sparkling sugar

Mile-Hi Mocha

Decadent mocha cake with an espresso butter cream and toffee topping

Pikes Peak Pistachio

Nutty pistachio cake topped with amaretto butter cream, chocolate chips and crushed pistachios

Rockin’ Red Velvet

Southern red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and sparkling sugar

Colorado Snowball

Almond flavored cake covered with rich chocolate and coconut


Sweet carrot cake topped with cream cheese frosting and tangy dried cranberries
