As many know, The Painted Cupcake recently closed its Arcade location store in late May to move to its new store, located in Green Hills. Besides its delicious cupcakes, The Painted Cupcake is known for its artful design with multi-colored striped walls and custom black chandeliers. Its cupcakes are made fresh on site everyday. The website advertises that the store “was created to be bright and cheerful, with an endless daily selection of made from scratch cupcakes, unique aprons, original art, and timeless music from the 30’s and 40’s” (source).
Their menu is filled with eclectic cupcakes that will fit any taste or appetite. Try their “Rockin’ Turtle,” a chocolate cake with caramel filling, roasted marshmallows, caramel drizzle and toasted pecans or their “Chipper,” a Vanilla cake filled with chocolate chip morsels with a chocolate or vanilla butter cream icing. The Painted Cupcake also understands that people are extremely busy, therefore they offer a curbside pick up service as well as delivery for orders of one dozen or more. For those on a diet, don’t fret; you can still try The Painted Cupcake’s babycakes, mini-cupcakes that only cost $1.10. Their new location is 2014 Glen Echo Road and they are open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm (source).
While on the subject of desserts, there’s a new ice cream in town, and that’s Jeni’s Ice Cream. The native Columbus, Ohio store will be expanding to East Nashville, becoming the company’s first out of state development. The store will officially be opening on June 24, in East Nashville’s Walden complex on Eastland Avenue, across from Rosepepper and around the bend from Cooper’s on Porter. Rumor has it that the store will be selling anywhere from 24-30 flavors, so don’t worry about getting bored with one flavor; there are plenty to try.
Doors will open precisely at 11 am on the 24th. For a sneak peek of the new shop with free scoops to the public, stop by from 7 to 10 pm on Thursday, June 23. Jeni’s President and Founder Jeni Britton Bauer shared, “I love spending time in Nashville…There are simple reasons why do-it-yourselfers like Emil Irwin and Imogene + Willie are thriving in Nashville and why the city has such a tradition of supporting long-running businesses like one of my favorite places on the planet, Hatch Show Print. The place has such a great environment for living, working, and doing something from the ground up — and doing it the way you want to do it.” (source). Make sure not to miss out on the grand opening of Jeni’s. And while you’re off your diet, zip over to Green Hills and check out The Painted Cupcake’s new artsy store.
