Despite my (irrational) distaste for cupcakes, I have to admit that this is a very cool idea: a double-decker bakery bus!

Bettie's Cakes Bus - photo lovingly borrowed from, because I haven't made it there myself to take a photo - yet

Here’s the deal: Bettie’s Cakes, located in the Downtown Marketplace in Saratoga Springs, is parking their double-decker cupcakery at the Hewitt’s on Western Avenue in Guilderland every day from noon-6, until December 23.  From what I understand, the cupcakes are a touch pricey ($2 for a mini?), but apparently worth every penny.   According to Bettie’s website, they offer a few regular everyday flavors (chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, cappuccino, pb cup), and some amazing flavors-of-the-week (most intriguing: tiramisu, cherry cola, and Yeti).

I believe a road trip is in order – anyone free Saturday afternoon around 1pm?  I will be there, camera in hand, to snap some shots.  I’d love some folks to join me!  You in?

For more photos of this one-of-a-kind mobile eatery, head on over to All Over Albany.  Linking to them is the very least I can do for borrowing their photo….thanks, guys.
