Cupcakes, like babies, are smaller, cuter, and more tempting to nibble on. Indulge your maternal/carnivoral instincts with today's Groupon for a 10-cupcake punch card to Twisted Sisters Cupcakes. Twisted Sisters travels through Virginia Beach selling pint-size gourmet treats out of its pink-polka-dotted bundt buggy. Buyers can redeem one punch per visit at the go-go gastro truck, indulging in grown-up-geared flavors such as Irish car bomb, red velvet, and salty dog. The icing wagon's travels can be followed daily on the business's Facebook and Twitter pages, so customers should check in to see when the delicious dainties will be in their area.
- All of a sudden, like magic, a squiggly line of ladies appeared beside the truck. Each one listened closely as the sisters described the flavors, and almost every one left with a little brown bag with a cupcake in it. For the rest of the day, no matter where the sisters went, people lined up for cupcakes. – Lorraine Eaton, Virginian-Pilot
Twisted Sisters Cupcakes & Sugar Shack Cafe
When you walk into Sugar Shack Cafe, you can smell the reason why owner Tracy made it on to Food Network's Cupcake Wars, not to mention why it was named the best in the area by Hampton Roads Magazine for four straight years. Buttercream, chocolate, lemon, and other scents fill the space and put the company's cupcakes in new hands all day. That goes double for its Twisted Sisters Cupcakes truck that makes its way through six Hampton Roads cities throughout the week.
Tracy uses only fresh, whole ingredients to craft her inventive sugary treats. Though the selection rotates weekly, some of her flavors include a cookie dough-stuffed cupcake, a pink lemonade cupcake, and The Keys, a lime curd and cheesecake cupcake atop a graham cracker crust. Back at the cafe, she also puts together cupcake towers, cakes, brownies, cookies, and other pastries for special occasions such as graduations and weddings.
