The Cupcake Shop - Raleigh

It seems like ages since someone posted about Raleigh, so here goes:

I was driving down Glenwood South and saw a storefront under constuction with a cute little sign that said "The Cupcake Shoppe."

So my two questions are: Has anyone heard anything about this place? And second, does this mean we're a "city" now?!

    1. I've been walking by this place hoping it will be open since last summer.


        Edit: I got all excited about it until I realised this was from a year ago (sigh)

          A year? Geez! I do hope it opens soon.........

        2. They had some unexpected delays redoing the plumbing etc. Should be opening in late April or early May. Will be a neat addition to Glenwood South.

        3. I think it is going to take a little more than a cupcake store to make Raleigh a "city."

          This city really lacks any decently priced restaurants with a solid menu.

            We're getting a cupcake store? That must mean the trend is long over if one is opening here/

              My husband and I was thinking along the same lines driving by last night. I saw the sign go up in that location when the "cupcake trend" was in full swing. Now that it looks like it is going to open, it seems the trend is dwindling. I am assuming, for its sake, that is serves more than cupcakes!

                Edible Arts on Hillsboro St. accross from Meredith College makes some excellent cakes. Been a while since i have been but it is definitely worth checking out, they may have cupcakes as well.

          2. i had some of their cupcakes at a private party a month ago. heavenly. so they are most likely opening, i hope anyway!
