Adelaide’s Cakes has opened a cupcake bar inside of their bakery, where customers get to decorate their favorite flavor cupcake with icing and toppings.
Murphy says she’s had this idea up her pastry chef sleeve for the past five years, and just recently was finally able to make her cupcake bar come to life.
“You know, a lot of people like it, it’s something very interactive, especially with little kids … especially REALLY little kids, because they like to touch stuff and get into it," said Assistant Manager, Louis Favieri.
“I love seeing people come in and their reaction, the kids love the cupcake bar so much. They get ecstatic, you just have to watch where they put their hands and everything, but it’s fun. And decorating the cupcakes it's my favorite thing to do," said Employee, Taylor Carlson.
Your custom made cupcake is weighed and costs $10 per pound. For anyone who would rather try one of Adelaide’s special desserts, their store is always stocked with sweets.
“We have mojito, we have a peanut butter, raspberry swirl, cookies and cream, we do a beer and bacon. We basically try to hit all the different cupcake flavors that people think of," said Murphy.
“You know, you’ve got to come in and taste stuff. You can’t just look in a window, you’ve got to come in and taste it, because everything’s delicious," said Favieri.
The bakery is named after the owner’s grandmother, who introduced her to her love of baking. But according to the employees, it’s more than just the history and cakes that keeps customers coming back.
“When people come in, they taste it, that’s what really wins them over," said Carlson. “You’re always going to have good customer service here no matter what."
