After much anticipation and several months delayed, Sweet Things Cupcakes & Coutureopened Sept. 12
in Proctor. I stopped in last week and sampled a trio of cupcakes. I’ll post more about the flavors and the store Friday. Sneak peak: the shop is Girly (with a really big G) and the cakes are delicious. I left the shop craving another espresso. They serve aa tasty Dillanos custom blend
In other cupcake news, Indulge Cupcakes in Puyallup closed temporarily Sept. 12 so that owner Jen Quaschnik could move her 2-year-old cupcake shop from downtown Puyallup to downtown Sumner. She expects to reopen in early October.
“We’re moving to a cute little white house. It’s less square footage, but we’re making it work,” said Quaschnik, who was a stay-at-home mother for more than a decade before opening her cupcake bakery. Her children attend school in Sumner, so the move is as much for family as it is for a better location for the shop. They’ve lost their banquet space, but there will be room to sit and eat a cupcake at the Sumner location. The cupcake menu will remain the same. She plans to be open until 8 p.m. at least some nights, although she hasn’t set her hours quite yet. For early morning traffic, she's toying with the idea of adding a hearty breakfast cupcake to the menu.
