i love the hot pink cake stand, a fairly new addition to wilmington's downtown at 114 north front street. i first tried it by myself last week. in the time it has been open the hot pink cake stand has gained a reputation for delicious cupcakes and beautiful cakes made by owner and cake artist jody carmichael who is as cute and sweet as her creations. since it was early morning on my first visit i tried a blueberry muffin which was the perfect breakfast treat. i returned the next day to try vegan pineapple cupcakes that jody told me about the day before. just as i walked in another customer purchased the last of the pineapple - no problem i bought lemon and coconut instead and brought them home to share with lily. they were both delicious but we both had a slight preference for the lemon - super yummy. the hot pink cake stand is the perfect combination of cozy, fresh and modern decorated in bright pinks and greens and blues with fresh flowers everywhere! the tables at the front are the perfect place for girlfriends to stop and chat after shopping or for an informal business meeting. i prefer to sit at the mosaic glass tiled counter and chat with jody as she works. what fun! in addition to cupcakes and muffins, jody has added cookies, scones and brownies to the menu and plans to add a savory breakfast roll sometime this week. vegan cupcakes are available daily ( i tried the chai tea variety and it was delicious) and gluten free are available friday and saturday. check out the hot pink cake stand's fan page on facebook to see what jody has baked fresh each day. or check their website @ www.hotpinkcakestand.com
I like that the Hot "Pink" Cake Stand was "pink". The cupcakes were terrific. I've had lemon, coconut and vanilla. Lemon was my favorite. I am looking forward to eating the Oreo cupcake. The cupcakes there were awesome and the lady that owns it is very friendly. I liked sitting at the counter. The counter top is pretty and you can see them making cupcakes. It would be a great place to have party decorating cupcakes or an easter egg cupcake hunt. I want to go back over the weekend for a playdate with Chloe and eat cupcakes.
