Buddy Valastro of TLCs "Cake Boss" heard yummy things about a popular Raleigh cupcake emporium so he stopped by the other day to check it out.
Valastro added his special touch to a cake under construction and saw first-hand how The Cupcake Shoppe is run.
Afterward, he gathered for a photo with the team.
Due to the season and demand, the shoppe, located at 104 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh, is now open Mondays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
And circle Dec. 3 on you calendar.
That's when the shoppe holds its annual holiday party from noon to 5 p.m. Guests can enjoy free cupcakes and coffee and get 10 percent off holiday orders. The shoppe is expanding its offerings this season to include macaroons and truffles.
