Hey Austin ~ Hey Cupcake! 1

I just returned home after a delightful weekend away to the Texas Hill Country. Over the next several posts, I’ll be highlighting some of my adventures. On our way to the airport, I asked Hubs to drive to downtown Austin for a peek at a Cupcake Airstream. What else, right? So, down we drove on the hippest street in Austin, South Congress a.k.a. SoCo! Not only does SoCo have some great eats, it’s a haven for Retro clothing boutiques, funky shops and unique to Austin stores. Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds and Electric Ladyland (a wild and way out crazy boutique) is where Bob Dylan is rumored to have shopped for retro outfits.

Food Trailers are a big hit in this “weird” city of Austin and many are found on South Congress. This is where we found Hey Cupcake! Wes Hurt, the owner of Hey Cupcake! had traveled to NYC and saw how successful Magnolia Bakery was just by selling cupcakes. Wes’ homegrown vision was brought to light and now there are several locations (all in Airstreams, of course) around town selling over 7000 cupcakes per week. And those are some good cakes, I promise you!! So, next time you are in Austin, Texas stop on by to get yourself some Airstream lov’in while enjoying the frosty goodness of Hey Cupcake!
