Bettie's Cakes now open

betties cakes logoThe new Saratoga cake shop opened this week and Fun in Saratoga Dan has a full report. It sounds like he was impressed (and the shop looks fun).

Bettie's took over the space in the Downstreet Marketplace formerly occupied by Spa City Cupcakes (Rachel St. Martin sold the business so she could spend more time with her son). The new owners told the Post-Star that they have big plans for the business, including a double-decker bus and "Happy Hour"-flavored cupcakes.

@jenh718 stopped by yesterday and tweeted: "pleased overall and loved the chocolate peanut butter!"

Aw, you published my tweet...I feel all famous now :)

I have to say the new shop is a vast improvement of the former cupcakery. It's so bright and has a cute retro vibe. And the owner is one sexy woman (not that that has anything to do with cupcakes)

The cupcakes are yummy. Moist cake with good, not too grainy frosting, although there's too much of it but that's the case in most cupcake shops. I do recommend the chocolate peanut butter, the frosting on that one is perfectly peanut buttery.

STOPPED AT BUS -(IN DELMAR) 7/29/10--- LOVED THE COTTON CANDY CUPCAKE- HUSBAND LOVED CARROT CAKE CUPCAKE- KEEP UP GOOD WORK
