Prairie Girl to open second Financial District cupcake shop (UPDATED)

Prairie Girl to open second Financial District cupcake shop (UPDATED)

Less than a year after opening up shop on Victoria Street, Jean Blacklock, the Bay Street escapee behind Prairie Girl Bakery, has announced plans for a second location of her popular cupcake shop. The new store will open on November 14 in in the Marketplace at the concourse level of First Canadian Place. As at the original location, the cupcakes will all be baked on site, albeit in a tiny 450-square-foot space. The expansion couldn’t come soon enough: with the weather getting colder, downtown’s cupcake heads will appreciate the lineups moving indoors.

UPDATE: Blacklock tells us the First Canadian Place location will also be stocking “Early Birds,” little old-fashioned cakes with toppings that, as she puts it, “may be more appealing in the morning than a swirl of butter icing.” The menu of 11 flavours of early birds—like raspberry cream cheese with a coffee base or banana split with with dried cherries, nuts and chocolate—will be available until 10 a.m. If things go well at the new location, expect a couple more Prairie Girl outlets to open next year.
