Ever since word broke out that Cupcake Wars winner Nadia Cakes would be opening a store in Maple Grove, I’ve been keeping an eye on their Facebook page. I am picky when it comes to cupcakes but hers look AMAZING! For example, today’s special cupcake is made with ripe bananas, Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans, buttermilk and Callebaut chocolate!
In celebration of their grand opening, receive a cupcake for just a buck on Thursday, July 26th.
