ONE YEAR OF FLAVORS AND FUN
In August 2011, at the 6th Car Show, Gigi opened the doors to Ms Goody Cupcake, South Philly’s lone cupcakery. Now, one year and thousands of cupcakes later, she celebrates a successful and busy year of tasty flavors, creative custom cakes, new products and fanatical social media followings.
Flavors in the last year have ranged from local flair (South Philly, Philly Love, Holy Cannoli), to unexpected twists (Swedish Fish, French Toast with a Side of Bacon, Elvis, Chocolate Covered Potato Chip), to back-to-basics (Honeycomb, M&M, Best Darned, White Wedding, Chocolate Mousse), to fruity flair (Tutti Fruity, Strawberry Limonade, Limoncello), to festive (July 4th, Chocolate Mint), to happy hour temptations (White Russian, Take Me Out to Ballpark), and EVERYTHING in between.
During the past 12 months, Ms Goody Cupcake participated in Yelp’s Passport to Passyunk, EPA’s Flavors of the Avenue, Philly Beer Week, Craft Beer Day, La Fasta Italian International Day, EPA Second Saturdays and more. In March, Ms. Goody celebrated the “2012 Philadelphia International Flower Show – Hawaii Islands of Aloha” by debuting a different Hawaiian-inspired cupcake every day of the show.
While cupcakes have been the shop’s main focus, Gigi also specialized in custom designer cakes and expanded her product line to include push-up cupcake pops, seasonal pies, cake truffles and cookies.
Looking ahead, Ms Goody Cupcake isn’t showing signs of slowing down, either! A new cupcake truck will debut for the fall. Stay tuned for details!
