In honor of Rachel’s visit, many of the cupcakes in the case will be topped with a custom chocolate donning the “Cupcakes Take The Cake” logo and a percentage of the daily case sales will be going to Children’s Memorial Hospital. Rachel and a surprise guest will be presenting this gift to a representative from the hospital.

It’s a dual celebration Saturday as Rachel will be joining us at Swirlz Cupcakes® and we will be commemorating our three year anniversary in Lincoln Park.

Many special events and surprises are planned for the day, including FREE mini cupcakes between 12:00-2:00 PM. Chicago thanks Rachel!

Come prepared to have fun, meet some great people and taste the world according to Swirlz!
