Time for a cupcake shop in downtown Grass Valley?

I get around! Here’s a new cupcake shop — “Cupcake Magic” — on the renovated main drag in downtown Yuba City — Plumas Street. There’s a Sopa Thai next door (like ours in Nevada City). Downtown Grass Valley could use a cupcake shop too. “What recession? For cupcake bakers, business is booming” is here. A blog dedicated to cupcakes is here.

    Sure, a cupcake shop or Voodoo Doughnuts. Put the shop next door to Quiznos on Sutton and Brunswick. I know the cops might like a doughnut shop! ;)

    Who doesn’t like their own personal cake?

  5. Marianna Greenberg says:

    Okay – All of you…. put the cupcakes down. Step away from the cupcakes!

    Sharon,
    I had to keep my word to Marianna, I bought two cupcakes. One for my wife and one for myself. They were great.

  8. Douglas Keachie says:

    I had some cupcakes, supposedly chocolate, from Safeway, that was absolutely awful, frosting wise. I threw it out after one bite. A total insult to real chocolate.
