my little cupcake recently opened another retail store in burlington. meet all their flavors – pictured above are salted caramel, butterfingers, chocolate hearts vanilla, cookies and cream*, snickers and the usuals (chocolate, strawberry, vanilla just to name a few.

they have the cutest little logo for their cute little cupcakes that you take it home on a coffee mug.

If you’re heading to burlington – you’ll find them on the corner of south winooski and college streets and make sure to check out the wall painting done by newduds. (not so sure like the cute logo in windows? they are in cool old brick building – maybe a more stylized logo would be better?).

notice the finger holes in the box above? perfect fir for your fingers to take out a cupcake WITHOUT touching the cupcake. ohsoclever!

p.s. spot the pupcake?
