Corner Cupcakes is Closing

Corner Cupcakes announced that their last day of operation will be Saturday, January 28, 2012.

This was the statement on their Facebook page:

“Dear Family, Friends and Followers,
We would like to thank you all for your love, support and encouragement. The past two years have been amazing and would not have possible without you. We have decided to close Corner Cupcakes to pursue other dreams. This will be our last week of operation and our final day will be on Saturday, January 28th. Again thank you for all your support. Lots of Love, Corner Cupcakes”

We are very sad to hear about this.  Their cupcakes were delicious and the ladies were always nice. SDFT wishes them the very best in their future endeavors!!

Corner Cupcakes closed in Jan. 2012.

Corner Cupcakes is San Diego’s mobile cupcake shop, visiting various locations in the County every week bringing fresh, baked from scratch cupcakes to the public.  The ladies who run the truck were kind enough to answer some questions for SDFT about themselves, their business, and their delicious creations.

1. Who are you and what is your background?
Amanda Schnitzius, 28 years old, BA in Mathematics from SDSU.  Quit my corporate job as a Payroll Technician in October to open up the cupcake truck.  Self taught baker, although my great grandparents were bakers so I think I may have gotten their genes.  Tina Swanson, 27 years old, BA in Political Science from UCSD.  Quit my corporate job as a Field Marketing Specialist in September to open up the cupcake truck.Corner Cupcakes

2. When did you open for business?
Corner Cupcakes opened at the end of October 2010.  However, our company Happy Tiers Bakery, LLC opened in February of 2010.

3. Why did you start a mobile food truck? And why cupcakes?
We were operating as Happy Tiers Bakery, LLC, a wedding and custom cake bakery, part time after our jobs and on the weekends in a rental kitchen in Clairemont Mesa.  Business was going really well and we knew that we could take the business full time and it would be successful. Around July 2010 we looked into getting our own storefront, but quickly realized that it was going to cost A LOT of money to start up.  So, we talked about opening a mobile bakery instead.  We quickly became very excited about the idea…probably more excited than opening our own store.  When we were looking into getting our own store, we had planned on there being cupcakes for sale for walk-in customers, so we carried that thought over to the mobile bakery.  Thus, the cupcake truck was born.
