Rival Cupcake Carts Square Off on Broadway

by

On a steamy, crowded afternoon on Broadway just north of Houston, two carts vie for the attention of the cupcake-starved populace. Little Cupcake Lover and Cupcake Creations both display the pastel, be-sprinkled mini cakes in tooth-aching flavors like mint and cappuccino, attracting a swarm of tweens. The genial fellow working yesterday in Little Cupcake Lover said that the two stands were unrelated. “Competition!” he announced with a grin, confident, apparently, in his cupcakes’ superiority.
