Buy Local This Valentine’s Day: The Cupcakerie

Valentine’s Day isn’t just about showing your love for your significant other, family and friends; it’s also about showing love for your community. Purchasing local gifts are a great way to give back, and for Valentine’s Day, the Cupcakerie is the perfect local option for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Opened in September 2011, the Cupcakerie has the pleasure of being Morgantown’s only exclusively cupcake bakery. Owners Anna Carrier and Janet Williams are both West Virginia University alumnae and “townies,”and they love serving their community.

“We love the university students,” said Carrier, a WVU exercise physiology graduate. “We love meeting all the great people. That’s our favorite part.”

The Cupcakerie will be featuring a few specials this Valentine’s Day. Three cupcakes with a rose and Hershey Kisses all bundled up with a big ribbon only costs $15, while four mini cupcakes with all the additions only costs $10. Additionally, you can add the Hershey Kisses and rose to any other treat for $5.
