Red Velvet Cupcakery Closes Saturday

Posted By on Wed, Nov 9, 2011 at 4:00 PM

Red Velvet Cupcakery at 943 E. University Blvd. will serve its last cupcake this Saturday. The other Tucson-area location at La Encantada closed about six months ago.

Is this the beginning of the end for the cupcake fad in Tucson? It's been on the slide in major cities across the country for awhile.

Personally, I'm a fan mini-desserts, and the creativity that many bakers put into cupcakes can be fun and, at times, quite beautiful. But paying $3.75 for a dessert that is chiefly frosting always stings a little, even if the cupcake in question is truly top-notch.
