Lancaster Cupcake was started on the belief that a cupcake could have the power to impact someone’s day. This belief is rooted and evident in the story of Emily and Jeff Mitchell, the husband-and-wife founders. Emily began baking for friends, family and co-workers while she was studying to become a nurse. The couple experienced misfortune when Jeff’s company’s owner became the focus of an FBI investigation and was later charged with embezzlement. Using the money they had left in their account, the Mitchells purchased a food truck in response to the high amounts requests for their cupcakes. Later that same year, the Mitchells were featured on the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, where they were finalists, taking second place. The business has since expanded into a full bakery, a retail store in downtown Lancaster, more food trucks and a new kiosk.

“The environment at Lancaster Cupcake is always very welcoming, no matter which location you choose to visit,” says Cassie Kreider, manager at the Orange Street location. “As a former customer of Lancaster Cupcakes myself, I think our customers like our cupcakes because they are unlike anything else out there. The flavors are unique and change weekly and with the seasons, which allows the customers to try a wide variety of different cupcakes.” 

In addition to providing treats for events, Lancaster Cupcakes offers a variety of venues that can be used for events themselves. The Orange Street location has a party room which can host 12 seated and 20 if it extends into the store, and can do fun decorating parties where everyone can get in on the action. The food trucks are also available for rental to arrive at any event as a sweet surprise. 

The Pennsylvania Meetings + Events second annual Best of 2017 readers’ choice awards were held at The Fuge in Warminster on Oct. 4. The event was attended by 85 industry insiders who anxiously awaited the announcement of each category’s winners, selected online by the readers of the magazine. The Fuge, home to the centrifuge where the astronauts trained to adjust to the G-force of the rockets, played up its otherworldly theme with blue-and-white lighting and space-themed accents, including a bar tucked inside the base of the centrifuge.
