If there was ever a time to go all out to tell our loved ones how we feel, it would be after nearly a year spent apart – or maybe too close together. That’s why one local business owner has decided the sky’s the limit when it comes to offering goodies for those who make us all gooey inside.
Kerri Cupcake, as she’s been known for more than a decade, had just sold her Sweet Indulgence storefront in Pawtuxet Village right around Valentine’s Day of 2020. What was meant to be just a few weeks’ turnaround before moving into a new shop turned into nearly a year in transition. Without missing a beat, or losing her well-known sense of humor, she pivoted and stepped up her online presence. And customers kept pace. They continued to place orders, however scaled down, to celebrate all their events and milestones.
“We love our customers,” Kerri says, taking a moment to set humor aside. “As one thank you we’ll be discounting our six-pack of Chocolate-Covered Strawberries to $20 this year.” A perennial favorite, and the best-selling Valentine item, that’s quite a gesture. She’s also planning to offer several versions of the viral sensation that is the Hot Cocoa Bomb and her always popular homemade Toaster Pastries.
The biggest news – beyond how close she is to opening a brand-new brick-and-mortar (with a few surprises, including a top-secret new name) – is that she’s not limiting her Valentine offerings to “specials”, beginning with a layered Neapolitan Cake. Three flavors of cake – vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry – slathered with generous layers of matching buttercream, should satisfy the most finicky family member or persnickety significant other. And if that’s not quite perfect, no worries. You can pick any flavor combination your heart desires for an order of mini cakes, all for just $35. That’s a small price to pay to turn that “same old Netflix and chill night” into something really special – even if you’re the only one in your jammies under that comfy throw!
