After seeing the tweets, noticing Kristi mention it and hearing the word-of-mouth, there were very few plausible scenarios that didn't involve us ending up at the Bettie's Cakes double-decker bus this afternoon.
So, we figured, why fight fate?
The "double decker cake stand" was parked at the Hewitt's on Western in Guilderland. Danielle, the friendly lady working the counter, said the bus would be there through Christmas (she wasn't sure about hours, but it was open noon-5 pm today).
We bought a six-pack of cupcakes for $16.75 (individual cupcakes were $3 for a large and $2 for a small). The eggnog cupcake we tried was dense, moist and really did taste a bit like eggnog. (The verdict from our resident cupcake expert, after tasting the eggnog: "Good, but I wish they weren't so heavy.")
The first floor of the bus is fitted with a display case with work space behind. It's a little tight -- we're guessing the ceiling is no taller than 5 feet 8 inches.
The upstairs is mostly empty. They've been using it for visits with Santa.
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
