Bettie's to stay in Colonie Center

Thumbnail image for Bettie's Cakes Logo.jpgWhen we got the news in November that Bettie's Cakes had opened a temporary location in Colonie Center for the holidays, we thought something like this might happen.

Bettie's Cakes owners Lorraine and John Murphy say there's been enough demand at the location to stick around on more permanent basis. They just signed a lease that will keep the cupcakes at Colonie Center until the end of 2011. That's in addition to Bettie's downtown Saratoga location, its double decker cupcake bus and a cupcake truck.

Colonie really has become the epicenter of the Capital Region's cupcake boom.

(What's the next boom? Please say gourmet donuts.)

Bonus food item The Epicurean announced today that it's closing its Route 7 location in Rensselaer County. It says business is down about 20 percent there over the last few years -- and they've decided to focus on their Latham Farms location. The Epicurean also runs the cafe at EMPAC.
